RIDGEWOOD, N.J. -- Happy birthday to Ridgewood's Robert T. Bakker!

Bakker, a Ridgewood native, turns 72 today.

Bakker, an American paleontologist who helped reshape modern theories about dinosaurs,was born March 24, 1945.

Bakker has been a major part of the theory that dinosaurs were smart, fast and adaptable. In 1968, he published his first paper on dinosaur endothermy. In 1986, his seminal work, "The Dinosaur Heresies" was published. He revealed the first evidence of parental care at nesting sites for Allosaurus.

He was among the advisers for the film "Jurassic Park" and for the 1992 PBS series, "The Dinosaurs!"
