Darren H. Tanke (born 1960) is a Canadian technician at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology in Drumheller, [[Alberta. An early mentor was Rene M Vandervelde (May 12, 1935-April 7, 2006) who took Tanke on fossil collecting trips in the Bearpaw Formation (marine fossils) south of Lethbridge, AB and in the Horseshoe Canyon Formation near Drumheller, AB (dinosaur bones). Vandervelde later went on to form a partnership in which crushed ammonites were converted into ammolite jewelery. In 1977-79, Tanke volunteered at the University of Calgary on weekends with Dr. Michael C. Wilson. There Tanke prepared, identified, and catalogued American Bison [Bison bison] bones he had collected from a Buffalo jump site he had found in today's Fish Creek Provincial Park in Calgary, Alberta. At the same time, in high school, Tanke was making Albertan kiln-fired clay ceratopsian skulls and skeletons in his art class, thus sealing his interest and passion for ceratopsian dinosaurs. In 1979, Tanke began working for Philip J. Currie in the paleontology department of the Provincial Museum of Alberta, originally as a field volunteer. From 1979 until 2005 (when Dr. Currie left the Tyrrell to become a professor at the University of Alberta in Edmonton) Tanke worked as a lab and field technician, a job he still holds today. At the museum he is one of two senior technicians in the Preparation Lab with the formal title of Technician II. He does not hold any formal post-secondary degrees, but is active in research and numerous writing projects, often in conjunction with vertebrate paleontology students whom he actively supports and established academia.

Senior editor of the 2001 book Mesozoic Vertebrate Life: New Research Inspired by the Paleontology of Philip J. Currie, Tanke appeared in the 1998 documentary film Dinosaur Park,[1] and the 1993 educational film Messages in Stone.[2] He also appeared in the 1994 Paleoworld episode "Dino Docs" which highlighted the field of dinosaur paleopathology. He has been interviewed several times for the Canada-wide CBC radio science program "Quirks and Quarks".

Tanke has authored papers on dinosaurs and dinosaur paleopathology; his recent work includes preparation of Pachyrhinosaurus fossils. He worked on a large monograph describing a new species (Pachyrhinosaurus lakustai), with senior co-authors Philip J. Currie and Wann Langston Jr. Most of the material described therein was prepared by him. This monograph, 21+ years in the making, was released at Grande Prairie Regional College on October 1, 2008. This publication describes skull material from the extremely rich Pachyrhinosaurus lakustai bonebed on Pipestone Creek, southwest of Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada. Also with this publication are two other papers, one describing the site taphonomy and quarry map and another paper describing the endocast and brain structure of P. lakustai.

Tanke is presently the longest serving employee with the Royal Tyrrell Museum. On August 7, 2008 at the 33rd International Geological Congress meetings in Oslo, Norway, he was made a member of INHIGEO (International Commission on the History of Geological Sciences). He is also a member of the PSP (Paleontological Society of the Peace; Grande Prairie, Alberta) and the APS (Alberta Palaeontological Society), where he regularly gives oral and poster presentations at their annual symposia in Calgary.

The Cenomanian (early Late Cretaceous) marine bird Pasquiaornis tankei (Tokaryk, Cumbaa and Storer, 1997) from Carrot River, Saskatchewan, Canada was named in Tanke's honor.

Lab and field workEdit

Darren Tanke has a number of jobs at Tyrrell, including fossil preparation, moulding and casting (in previous years), giving talks to the public or identifying fossils the public brings in for identification. In the field, he looks for, identifies, and collects fossils as well as training and supervising summer field staff and preparation laboratory volunteers.

Tanke is interested in technical applications to dinosaur site preservation using quarry stakes (on-site metal markers embedded in concrete); GPS and historical information and garbage to relocate lost quarries (some dating back to 1913) using historical archaeology techniques. He is also interested in dinosaur paleopathology, dinosaur ontogeny, and all aspects of horned dinosaurs. He has been heavily involved in the paleontological activities in the Grande Prairie region since 1983. Much of his recent research focusses on various aspects of Alberta's early human history of paleontological discoveries and research in the province. These include biographies of some of the lesser known paleontology workers in the province, relocating "lost" fossil specimens, the World War I sinking of the merchant ship SS Mount Temple and her Albertan dinosaur cargo, etc. He has worked in the field across western Canada and in Montana (1982), Utah (1997), and Texas (2008), mostly in middle and especially Late Cretaceous beds. Overseas fieldwork or history-based research has taken him to Australia (1991), Argentina (2000), China (2005), England (2005, 2008), France (2001), Mongolia (2005), and Norway (2005). He has also done fieldwork in British Columbia (1985) and Saskatchewan (1985). He has recently set up an annual ceratopsian (horned dinosaur) research scholarship for University-level students under the Dinosaur Research Institute in Calgary, with whom he is on the board of Directors (beginning in 2008). $1500.00 CDN is awarded each year, the winner notified in May.

Current research and writing projects include several articles on the use of helicopters in Alberta to collect fossils and lift heavy dinosaur skeletons in their plaster field jackets (the first lift done in 1967); badlands erosion and past/future impact on articulated/associated dinosaur skeleton fossils resources in Dinosaur Provincial Park (with Don Henderson, Royal Tyrrell Museum); review of occurrences of Albertan ceratopsian (horned dinosaur) paleopathology (with Bruce M. Rothschild); relocation of an Albertan horned dinosaur skeleton historically "lost", but "found" by Tanke some 73 years later safe in a London, England museum; relocation of a lost (1914) Basilemys turtle quarry in Dinosaur Provincial Park; and a massive (470+ pages) tome on the history of collection, research and other aspects of horned dinosaur field and research work in Alberta, Canada. Dozens of other writing projects on widely varying aspects of vertebrate paleontology and paleontology history are in various stages of completeness. Two of these are detailed histories of hadrosaur collection and research in Alberta, and a detailed 25+ year chronological history of the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller, Alberta.

Current lab work involves the preparation of a large Late Cretaceous horned dinosaur skull (TMP2005.55.1), collected from the Oldman River about 90 km south of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. This large and fragile skull is encased in a thick rind of very hard rock and will take several years to complete. It appears to be a new genus, but much work will need to be done to confirm this.

He is also actively working towards a 2010 historical re-enactment of the early use of scows (flat bottomed and flat decked boats) used by early paleontologists in the province (beginning in 1910). Such scows were used by the American Museum of Natural History and the Geological Survey of Canada to explore the badlands along the Red Deer River c. 1910-1916 for dinosaur skeletons.The 2010 trip will follow in the footsteps of our paleontological forefathers and will be dedicated mostly to the surveying of the badlands andlooking for new fossil resources, all the while trying to live like the early paleontologists did 100 years ago.

Tanke also administers several public Facebook sites related to various aspects of vertebrate paleontology such as dinosaur paleopathology, vertebrate paleontology history, Tyrrell Museum field alumni, and several others.
