Henry Fairfield Osborn



Henry Fairfield Osborn (1857-1935) was an American paleontologist who was the president of the American Museum of Natural History, and also a professor at Columbia University,

Osborn described and named Tyrannosaurus Rex in 1905, the first fossil having been discovered by Barnum Brown in 1902.

Osborn also proposed the theory of Adaptive Radiation, in which animals and plants evolve into several species by spreading and adapting to new areas and ecological niches.
