A king-sized theropod coprolite
Fossil faeces (coprolites) provide unique trophic perspectives on ancient ecosystems. Yet, although thousands of coprolites have been discovered, specimens that can be unequivocally attributed toExpand

CHIN — ANALYSES OF COPROLITES PRODUCED BY VERTEBRATES 43 ANALYSES OF COPROLITES PRODUCED BY CARNIVOROUS VERTEBRATES
The fossil record contains far more coprolites produced by carnivorous animals than by herbivores. This inequity reflects the fact that feces generated by diets of flesh and bone (and other skeletalExpand

Remarkable Preservation of Undigested Muscle Tissue Within a Late Cretaceous Tyrannosaurid Coprolite from Alberta, Canada
Abstract Exceptionally detailed soft tissues have been identified within the fossilized feces of a large Cretaceous tyrannosaurid. Microscopic cord-like structures in the coprolitic ground mass areExpand

Coprolite morphotypes from the Upper Cretaceous of Sweden: novel views on an ancient ecosystem and implications for coprolite taphonomy
Coprolites (fossilized faeces) are common, yet previously unreported, elements in the Campanian (Upper Cretaceous) shallow-marine strata of Asen, southern Sweden. They are associated with a diverseExpand

Taxonomic composition, paleoecology and biostratigraphy of Late Cretaceous diatoms from Devon Island, Nunavut, Canadian High Arctic
Abstract Upper Cretaceous sediments of the Kanguk Formation exposed in Eidsbotn and Viks Fiord grabens on Devon Island, Nunavut, Canadian High Arctic, yielded 91 fossil marine diatom species andExpand

Dinosaurs, dung beetles, and conifers; participants in a Cretaceous food web
Late Cretaceous trace fossils from the Two Medicine Formation of Montana are interpreted as herbivorous dinosaur feces reworked by scarabaeine dung beetles. These irregular blocks of comminuted plantExpand

Fossil wood from the middle Cretaceous Moreno Hill Formation: Unique expressions of wood mineralization and implications for the processes of wood preservation
Abstract The Cretaceous (Turonian) Moreno Hill Formation of west–central New Mexico provides an opportune isotaphonomic setting to study wood preservation because both carbonized and mineralized woodExpand

THE PALEOBIOLOGICAL IMPLICATIONS OF HERBIVOROUS DINOSAUR COPROLITES FROM THE UPPER CRETACEOUS TWO MEDICINE FORMATION OF MONTANA: WHY EAT WOOD?
Abstract Rare assemblages of woody coprolites from different strata of the Two Medicine Formation provide surprising perspectives on the feeding behavior of Late Cretaceous ornithischian dinosaurs.Expand

Ostracods, plant tissues, and other inclusions in coprolites from the Late Cretaceous Lameta Formation at Pisdura, India: Taphonomical and palaeoecological implications
Abstract A rich microbiota with distinctive plant fossils has been discovered in Type A morphotype coprolites from the Lameta Formation of Pisdura, in Maharashtra, India. Macerated fractions examinedExpand

Comparative osteohistology of Hesperornis with reference to pygoscelid penguins: the effects of climate and behaviour on avian bone microstructure
The broad biogeographic distribution of Hesperornis fossils in Late Cretaceous Western Interior Seaway deposits has prompted questions about whether they endured polar winters or migrated betweenExpand
