Synchrotron imaging reveals bone healing and remodelling strategies in extinct and extant vertebrates
Current understanding of bone healing and remodelling strategies in vertebrates has traditionally relied on morphological observations through the histological analysis of thin sections. However,Expand

The mapping and differentiation of biological and environmental elemental signatures in the fossil remains of a 50 million year old bird
The preservation of fossils reflects the interplay of inorganic and organic chemical processes, which should be clearly differentiated to make interpretations about the biology of extinct organisms.Expand

Pheomelanin pigment remnants mapped in fossils of an extinct mammal
Recent progress has been made in paleontology with respect to resolving pigmentation in fossil material. Morphological identification of fossilized melanosomes has been one approach, while a secondExpand

Elemental characterisation of melanin in feathers via synchrotron X-ray imaging and absorption spectroscopy
Melanin is a critical component of biological systems, but the exact chemistry of melanin is still imprecisely known. This is partly due to melanin’s complex heterogeneous nature and partly becauseExpand

Immunoglobulin G concentration in canine colostrum: Evaluation and variability.
Canine neonates are born hypogammaglobulinemic, and colostrum is their main source of immunoglobulins. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the immune quality of canine colostrum and itsExpand

More than One Way of Being a Moa: Differences in Leg Bone Robustness Map Divergent Evolutionary Trajectories in Dinornithidae and Emeidae (Dinornithiformes)
The extinct moa of New Zealand included three families (Megalapterygidae; Dinornithidae; Emeidae) of flightless palaeognath bird, ranging in mass from <15 kg to >200 kg. They are perceived to haveExpand

First diagnosis of septic arthritis in a dinosaur
Identification and interpretation of pathologies in the fossil record allows for unique insights into the life histories of extinct organisms. However, the rarity of such finds limits not only theExpand

Hagfish from the Cretaceous Tethys Sea and a reconciliation of the morphological–molecular conflict in early vertebrate phylogeny
Significance Jawless, boneless, and virtually without fossil record, hagfish have long escaped systematists’ grip on their place among other fish. Yet their systematic resolution is critical toExpand

Interpreting pathologies in extant and extinct archosaurs using micro-CT
Palaeopathology offers unique insight to the healing strategies of extinct organisms, permitting questions concerning bone physiology to be answered in greater depth. Unfortunately, mostExpand
