World’s ‘First Named Dinosaur’ Reveals New Teeth with Scanning Tech

Megalosaurusresized-creditUniversityofWarwickMarkGarlick.jpg

Pioneering technology has shed fresh light on the world’s first scientifically-described dinosaur fossil – over 200 years after it was first discovered - thanks to research by WMG at the University of Warwick and the University of Oxford’s Museum of Natural History.

How the Famous Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Bone Bed Came to Be

Human-allosaurus_size_comparison.png

The Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry is the densest collection of Jurassic dinosaur fossils. Since its discovery in the 1920s, numerous hypotheses have been proposed to explain the origin of the quarry. Were the dinosaurs poisoned? Did they die due to drought? Were they trapped in quick sand? A new study suggests that the quarry represents numerous mortality events which brought the dinosaurs to the site over time, rather than a single fatal event.

Weathering of Rocks a Poor Regulator of Global Temperatures

Observations from the age of the dinosaurs to today shows that chemical weathering of rocks changes less with global temperatures than believed. The results upend the accepted idea for how rocks regulate a planet's temperature over millions of years.

Antibiotic-Resistant Microbes Date Back to 450 MYA, Well Before the Age of Dinosaurs

Leading hospital “superbugs,” known as the enterococci, arose from an ancestor that dates back 450 million years — about the time when animals were first crawling onto land (and well before the age of dinosaurs), according to a new study.

What Can We Learn from Dinosaur Proteins?

Researchers recently confirmed it is possible to extract proteins from 80-million-year-old dinosaur bones. The discovery sparks hopes for new insights about evolution and environmental change and could even offer useful clues for drug discovery or the search for extraterrestrial life.

Discovery of Early, ‘Croc-Like’ Reptile Sheds New Light on Evolution of Dinosaurs

A new species of ancient reptile has been described by scientists at the University of Birmingham, filling a critical gap in the fossil record of dinosaur cousins and suggesting that some features thought to characterise dinosaurs evolved much earlier than previously thought.

New Research Disproves Common Assumption on Cranial Joints of Alligators, Birds, Dinosaurs

Researchers from the University of Missouri School Of Medicine recently discovered that although alligators, birds and dinosaurs have a similar skull-joint shape, this does not guarantee that their movements are the same.
