    Sereno among Esquire's 'best'

    Chicago paleontologist Paul Sereno, Associate Professor in Organismal Biology & Anatomy, has been named one of Esquire magazine's "100 Best People in the World" in the magazine's December issue, now on newsstands.

    Earlier this year, Sereno was selected as one of Newsweek's "100 people to watch for the next millennium" and People's "Fifty Most Beautiful People."

    Esquire writes, "By best we mean people who make our lives richer or larger or happier." Others on the list include physicist Stephen Hawking and poet Toni Morrison.

    Sereno, one of the world's foremost paleontologists, has uncovered the world's most primitive dinosaur, Eoraptor, as well as the largest predator, Carcharodontosaurus.
