A Potential Breeding Site of a Miocene Era Baleen Whale

PeerJ

Baleen whales are amongst the largest animals to have ever lived and yet very little is known about their breeding habits. One researcher’s second look at previously found baleen whale fossils from Japan provides new evidence of a now long-gone breeding ground of the extinct baleen whale Parietobalaena yamaokai dating back over 15 million years.

First Winged Mammals From the Jurassic Period Discovered

University of Chicago Medical Center

Two 160 million-year-old mammal fossils discovered in China show that the forerunners of mammals in the Jurassic Period evolved to glide and live in trees. With long limbs, long hand and foot fingers, and wing-like membranes for tree-to-tree gliding, Maiopatagium furculiferum and Vilevolodon diplomylos are the oldest known gliders in the long history of early mammals.

Analysis of Animal Teeth Suggests Neolithic Cattle Grazed at Home and Away

University of Southampton

An international team of researchers has shown in unprecedented detail that prehistoric farmers took their animals away from permanent settlements to graze in more fertile areas – probably because of high demand for land locally.

Experts Dig Up Las Cruces Boy’s Million-Year-Old Fossil Find

New Mexico State University (NMSU)

Ten-year Jude Sparks’s accidental discovery in the Las Cruces desert led a New Mexico State University professor to a rare, mostly intact 1.2 million year-old stegomastodon skull. NMSU biology professor Peter Houde put together a team that worked for about a week to carefully unearth the skull.

Acoustic Scientist Sounds Off About the Location of Cave Paintings

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

One popular theory about the Paleolithic cave paintings proposes that sites were chosen based on the acoustics in the caves. The originators of the theory reported a causal connection between the “points of resonance” in three French caves and the position of Paleolithic cave paintings. David Lubman, an acoustic scientist and fellow of ASA, will share some of the insights from his research during Acoustics ’17 Boston, held June 25-29, in Boston, Massachusetts.
