A new study by Ohio University researchers Lawrence Witmer and Ryan Ridgely found that dinosaurs had more air cavities in their heads than expected. By using CT scans, the scientists were able to develop 3-D images of the dinosaur skulls that show a clearer picture of the physiology of the airways.
“I’ve been looking at sinuses for a long time, and indeed people would kid me about studying nothing—looking at the empty spaces in the skull. But what’s emerged is that these air spaces have certain properties and functions,” said Witmer, Chang Professor of Paleontology in Ohio University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine.

In 1971 he found a skull of a rhino calf protruding from an eroding ravine. The skull turned out to be part of a complete skeleton embedded in volcanic ash.
Voorhies led excavations of the site in 1978 and 1979, supported by a grant from the National Geographic Society's Committee for Research and Exploration. (National Geographic News is part of the National Geographic Society.)
About 12 million years ago, a volcano in modern-day Idaho spread a blanket of ash over large parts of what is now the midwestern United States. A layer of this powdered glass one or two feet (one- to two-thirds of a meter) thick covered the grasslands of northeastern Nebraska.
Most of the animals living in the area survived the actual ashfall, but as they continued to graze on the ash-covered grasses, their lungs began to fill with the deadly particles.

The dinosaur bones are from rocks found in the Winton Formation, a geological layer 102-98 million years old. Since excavations began, several other types of dinosaurs have been found, including plant-eating ankylosaurs and ornithopods, plus the serrated teeth of carnivorous theropod dinosaurs.
Among the remains of these dinosaurs are the fossils of small animals and plants, which may have been considered dinosaurs' food!
Volunteers from across Australia and overseas help to excavate the dinosaur bones, putting them in plaster jackets ready for transport to the lab. There, they are painstakingly prepared for scientific study and display.

new archeological site in St George, Utah, U.S. was recently highlighted by Andrew Milner, Paleontologist, City of St. George, Jim Kirkland, State Paleontologist and Sidney Ash, Paleo-botanists. The site is significant because it is the only early Jurassic land flora known in the western United States. It provides evidence that a variety of land plants were present in the area about 200 million years ago.

Direct fossil evidence for dinosaur skin color is unknown. Paleontologists think that some dinosaurs likely had protective coloration, such as pale undersides to reduce shadows, irregular color patterns ("camouflage") to make them less visible in vegetation, and so on. Those dinosaurs that had enough armor, such as the stegosaurs and ceratopsians, may not have needed protective coloration but may have been brightly colored as a warning to predators or as a display for finding a mate. Most dinosaurs probably were as brightly colored as modern lizards, snakes, or birds.

Our results indicate that the small genomes typically associated with avian flight evolved in the saurischian dinosaur lineage between 230 and 250 million years ago, long before this lineage gave rise to the first birds. By comparison, ornithischian dinosaurs are inferred to have had much larger genomes, which were probably typical for ancestral Dinosauria. Using comparative genomic data, we estimate that genome-wide interspersed mobile elements, a class of repetitive DNA, comprised 5-12% of the total genome size in the saurischian dinosaur lineage, but was 7-19% of total genome size in ornithischian dinosaurs, suggesting that repetitive elements became less active in the saurischian lineage. These genomic characteristics should be added to the list of attributes previously considered avian but now thought to have arisen in non-avian dinosaurs, such as feathers, pulmonary innovations, and parental care and nesting.

Platypterygius was a large ichthyosaur (not a dinosaur) which grew to 6 or 7 metres long. It inhabited the inland sea between 110 and 100 million years ago. Fossils of this animal are amongst the most common of the large marine reptiles found in Queensland. Platypterygius was a fast and agile swimmer. It swam by moving its tail from side to side and steered with paddles or fins. It gave birth to live young. It would have eaten squid, fish and ammonites. The fossil remains of a hatching and its mother were discovered in Queensland in 1988. The name Platypterygius means broad-fin.

The head of the discovered dino structure is nine centimeters in size, whereas the forefeet and rear feet are 8 centimeters and 25 centimeters in size correspondingly. “The skin and the teeth of the specimen are intact and it is an amazing finding.
Dr. Kenny of the Indian Forest Services said that “This seems to be a reptile or a predecessor of dinosaurs”. Rajesh Sharma, the first person to see the fossil at his ancestral house said “I was digging this piece of land when saw this fossil. I took it to my home but my wife asked me to throw it away. When I came out, other villagers were all set to buy it. But I was asked by my fellow citizen to submit it to the forest authorities. It looked fairly like a dinosaur”.
In accordance with Anand Kurejia, the reptile may have been 60 to 70 years old at the time of its death. The fossil has been sent to specialists in Ranchi for added study.

However the journal Biology Letters reports that modern practice is at present very good. Professor Michael Benton from Bristol University, UK said "My research plans we're getting better at naming things; we're being more serious; we're using better material".
The scientist looked at the innovative descriptions of all 1,047 species of dinosaurs yet named, from 1824 to the present calendar day. He assessed the value of the specimens on which the names were founded - the kind specimens. Professor Benton said few 500 were truly distinct, and the confidence surrounding the most recent discoveries - about one new species a fortnight - was currently very high. Professor Benton explained that "The bane of the dinosaurologist's life is species that have been given named on the basis of unfinished specimens".
"In Victorian times, palaeontologists were dedicated to name new species, and in the animation of the great 'bone wars' for instance, from 1870 to 1890, they rushed into print with new names for each odd tooth, leg bone, or skull cap that came their manner. "Later work, on added complete specimens, reduced over 1,000 named dinosaurs to 500 or so".
Professor Benton said science had currently put in place far more accurate naming protocols, noticeably reducing the "alias problem". Since in 1960, the great greater part of new species are founded on more or less complete specimens, occasionally even whole skeletons. Professor Benton has a critical interest in the topic for the reason that he studies the evolution of dinosaurs. He tries to recognize how this famous animal group changed and diversified over roughly 200 million years.
"There's no point someone like myself doing big statistical analyses of numerous dinosaur species through time - or indeed any other fossil group - if you can't be sure that they really are genuinely different," he told BBC News. "This is essential moreover for studies of modern biodiversity. People have as well been looking at our present knowledge of mammals and insects and other animal groups and asking the easy question: are the species totals and lists we make use of for important conclusions - including to give the political advice about endangered species - are they right? "There's been a big debate regarding vast extinctions among amphibians. We have to know what the species are first, prior to we can converse about that”.

The Australian Age of Dinosaurs Institute has done a two-week dig at a remote sheep and cattle station close to Winton, somewhere a 20-metre sauropod, dubbed Matilda, was uncovered three years ago. Institute chairman David Elliott said the fossils found in the most recent dig were up to 98 million years old.
Mr Elliott said that "We took back two ute fulls of bones". As they're small bones we don't consider they belong to Matilda. "We're expectant it's something wholly unique but we won't know whatever thing until six to eight months' time."
Mr Elliott said more of Matilda's bones were as well retrieved. He also said that "We're looking at one of the main concentrations of dinosaur bones that we've ever found". "There's a massive potential for some very exciting discoveries to come out of this work".
Sauropods, which first appeared in the late Triassic time, were the biggest animals to have lived on land.

Scientists from the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology in
Researcher Darla Zelenitsky, a geoscientist at the
It was nearly by accident that scientists recognized that the fossil turtle had been pregnant. "The real reason we knew she was pregnant was since when the fossil was found the body was broken down," Zelenitsky told LiveScience, "therefore there was egg shell on the ground immediately below the fossil, it was falling out of the body".
The team spotted at least five crushed eggs inside the body of the fossilized female, and computed tomography (CT) scans discovered more eggs concealed beneath the turtle's shell. The turtle, expected to be about 16 inches (40 cm) long, could have produced about 20 eggs. When still intact, the eggs would have been sphere-shaped and about 1.5 inches (4 cm) in diameter. The eggs from the close by nest were about the same size and form. Both sets of eggs as well had very thick and hard shells, particularly relative to most modern turtles whose shells are moreover thinner or soft.
The thick eggshell can have evolved to look after the eggs from drying out or from greedy predators that lived during the Age of Dinosaurs. The pregnant turtle and nest specimens, the researchers say, shed light on the growth of reproductive traits of current turtles. François Therrien, the Museum's Curator of Dinosaur Palaeoecology, who worked on the turtle report in the journal said that "Based on these fossils, we have firm that the ancestor of living hidden-necked turtles, which are nearly all of today's turtles and tortoises, laid a big number of eggs and had hard, rigid shells".

In accordance with at least one Evangelist pastor, Vince Fenech, of the wholly licensed, State-approved Creationist institution, trusts and teaches children from ages 4 to18, that dinosaurs helped build the pyramids. Citing a so far undiscovered Biblical reference in the Book of Job, Fenech violently injures credulity and incredulously asserts to reporter Raphael Vassallo, of the MaltaToday newspaper, that the world was “created in 4004 BC”, and the ancient Egyptians harnessed the power of Jurassic-period dinosaurs to put up the Great Pyramid of Giza.
Pastor Vince Fenech is of course, a Creationist and eager espouser of a bevy of ideas that not only contests his good sense, but as well baselessly suspends science in the name of God; mainly that the Apollo 11 moon landing confirms “the universe is still young!”

Consistent with a Tuesday report in the Mitteldeutsche Zeitung, a local paper in the area, archaeologists working in the quarry set up traces of a dinosaur that they believe are 250 million years old -- older than some known proof of dinosaurs. Thus far, officials from the state's Office for Preservation of Monuments and Archaeology have refused to confirm the find. A spokeswoman there has simply pointed out that the quarry is still in operation and that hobby diggers ought to stay away. The scientific group of people, though, is electrified. Should the age of the traces be confirmed, the find could shed light on the very starting of dinosaurs. One professional told the paper that the find is of "sensational value to science".
Until at present, scientists assumed that dinosaurs first evolved from archosaurs about 235 million years ago -- a good 15 million years after the creation of the dinosaur traces currently discovered. Archosaurs were lizard-like creatures that were greatly smaller than nearly all dinosaurs. Present-day alligators, crocodiles and some species of birds are as well descendents of archosaurs. Dinosaurs, although, died out some 65 million years ago. Scientists have been able to use bones, footprints, fossils, and other traces to restructure the so-called Mesozoic age, the time when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. It is an era divided into three periods, the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous -- with the present find maybe pushing back the earliest years of the Triassic.

Five smaller carnivores that round out the cast are populated by realistically dinosaur-suited actors, who have no aim of being confused with Barney.
For natural olden time’s museums, it may be somewhat discomfiting to have traditional displays of fossilized remains potentially upstaged by wholly fleshed-out facsimiles that make a lot more than just stand there. The William Brown, president of the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia said that "I'm confident some rational-thinking scientists think it's a bad thing”. But he is happy to make out an "edutainment" sight like "Walking With Dinosaurs" pack families into sports arenas for staged lessons in evolutionary biology. Perhaps the Rolling Stones can at present quake off their own dinosaur label when it comes to their incessant arena touring.

Cooper and her colleagues compared growth rate data from H. stebingeri with three predators, all of which lived in the Late Cretaceous time from about 100 million to 65 million years ago: the tyrannosaurs Albertosaurus and its huge relative T. rex, with the small Troodon formosus, which reached just 6 feet (1.8 meters) in length and sported a quite huge brain. For the hadrosaur, Cooper and her colleagues examined thin sections of long leg bones and counted and measured the growth rings, which all specify a year of life. When it died this individual dino was about 13 years old.
Drew Lee, a postdoctoral fellow in Ohio University's College of Osteopathic Medicine who worked with Cooper on the finding said that ”The duck-billed dinosaur grew three to five times faster than any potential predators that lived next to it and by the time the duck-billed dinosaur was fully grown, the tyrannosaurs were just half grown -- it was a huge size difference”. Researchers said that the Hypacrosaurus moreover reached sexual maturity early, at only two or three years of age.

But new research challenges that finding and suggests that the supposed recovered dinosaur tissue is in reality biofilm – or slime. "I supposed that preserved soft tissues had been found, however I had to change my opinion," said Thomas Kaye, an associate researcher at the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture at the University of Washington. "You must go where the science leads, and the science directs me to believe that this is bacterial biofilm."
The original research, published in Science magazine, claimed the finding of blood vessels and what appeared to be entire cells inside fossil bone of a Tyrannosaurus rex. The scientists had dissolved the bone in acid, leaving behind the blood vessel- and cell-like structures. But in a paper published July 30 in PloS ONE, a magazine of the open-access Public Library of Science, Kaye and his co-authors challenge that what was truly inside the T. rex bone was slimy biofilm created by bacteria that coated the voids once occupied by blood vessels and cells.
The scientists also dissolved bone in acid, as had been done earlier, and found the same soft tissue structures. They conducted a comparison by means of infrared mass spectroscopy and determined the structures were more strongly related to modern biofilm than modern collagen, extracellular proteins connected with bone. Carbon dating placed the origin at around 1960.
By an electron microscope, the researchers saw coatings on the vascular canal walls that contained gas bubbles, which they related with the presence of methane-producing bacteria. Also they examined what looked like tiny cracks within the vascular canals and found that they were in fact small troughs, or channels. Study at high magnification discovered the channels had rounded bottoms and bridged each other, indicating they were in nature created, likely by bacteria moving in a very thick solution.

DINOSAUR paw marks from Ardley Quarry close to Bicester have been moved to a new address at the
The odd prints are mainly important for scientists since they show the beast breaking into a run, probably to pursue one of the vegetarian cetiosaurs whose tracks were found close by. The prints had been cut from Ardley Quarry in 2004 and stored to protect them from the elements, however were moved to the museum in Woodstock in a thorough operation last Tuesday, June 25. It's startling that footprints in the mud should last so long and that we can study so much from them. What's particular about these prints is that they show the carnivorous megalosaurus next to the cetiosaurs.
The prints are because of going on public display in the autumn, housed in a walled garden stocked with ancient varieties of plant for example the ginkgo biloba. The prints will be observed over by a life-size replica of a megalosaurus, and a new DVD documenting the story of the footprints will be sent to neighboring schools.

Extinction of Dinosaur is a hot topic for discuss. New theories for the upheaval that killed the dinosaurs are offered every couple of years. We have viewed the substantiation and have decided to present our own theory.
The majority scientists consider that dinosaurs went vanished about 50 to 65 million years ago. Most scientists have the same opinion that man's notion of dinosaurs has been bordered to the history 180 years or so (the word itself wasn't even invented until 1841). Therefore, if we ascertained evidence of man's acquaintance of (coexistence with) dinosaurs during the last couple of centuries, "science" (as we know it) would be turned upside down.
Dinosaur Extinction is a topical occurrence. Many of the great sea and land monsters went wiped out in a comprehensive flood about 4400 years ago. Some of these individuals survived and populated earth with man, until they too went vanished as man killed them for sport, safety, and expansion (like black bears of

The curious skull of Baryonyx is very stretch, with a bent or sinuous jaw margin as spot in large crocodiles and alligators. It moreover had chubby conical teeth, somewhat than the blade like jagged ones in meat eating dinosaurs, and a conspicuous spherical jaw tip that tire a rosette of teeth, more usually seen today in slender jawed fish eating crocodilians for example the Indian fish eating gharial.

The theory helps give details why dinosaurs took so extended to die off, the time at which the dinosaurs nowhere to be found, among the Cretaceous and Tertiary periods, is well-known as the K-T Boundary. Rising new diseases spread by biting insects, joint through the spread of flowering plants, and struggle with insects for plant resources, was "absolutely well-suited" with a extended process of death. In dinosaur faeces we bring into being nematodes, trematodes and even protozoa that might have caused dysentery and additional abdominal disturbances. The infective period of these intestinal fleas are passed by filth visiting insects.
