The age of the Cretaceous Santana Formation fossil Konservat Lagerstätte of north-east Brazil: a historical review and an appraisal of the biochronostratigraphic utility of its palaeobiota
This paper is concerned with the famous fossil-bearing carbonate concretions of the Romualdo Member of the Santana Formation Konservat Lagerstatten of north-east Brazil. This palaeontologicallyExpand
Semiaquatic adaptations in a giant predatory dinosaur

Adaptations for a semiaquatic lifestyle in the dinosaur Spinosaurus aegyptiacus are described, including retraction of the fleshy nostrils to a position near the mid-region of the skull and an elongate neck and trunk that shift the center of body mass anterior to the knee joint. Expand
Phosphatization of soft-tissue in experiments and fossils
Soft-tissues phosphatized in laboratory experiments closely resemble fossil phosphatized soft-tissues, indicating that similar processes were involved. The smaller the aggregations of calciumExpand
