Cretaceous dinosaur bone contains recent organic material and provides an environment conducive to microbial communities
TLDR
16S rRNA amplicon sequencing revealed that dinosaur bone hosted an abundant microbial community different from lesser abundant communities of surrounding sediment, attracting microbes that likely utilize inorganic nutrients and complicate identification of original organic material. Expand

THE ROLE OF DECAY AND MINERALIZATION IN THE PRESERVATION OF SOFT-BODIED FOSSILS
▪ Abstract Fossil deposits that preserve soft-bodied organisms provide critical evidence of the history of life. Usually, only more decay resistant materials, e.g., cuticles, survive as organicExpand
Gigantism and comparative life-history parameters of tyrannosaurid dinosaurs
TLDR
Growth patterns within the Tyrannosauridae are studied and it is determined that Tyrannosaurus rex's great stature was primarily attained by accelerating growth rates beyond that of its closest relatives. Expand

Bone preservation, decay and its related conditions in ancient human bones from Kuwait
By means of scanning electron microscopy, four out of a series of twelve inhumations from the Hellenistic Period were examined for traces of the decay process. The changes represented the result ofExpand

High-fidelity organic preservation of bone marrow in ca. 10 Ma amphibians
Bone marrow in ca. 10 Ma frogs and salamanders from the Miocene of Libros, Spain, represents the first fossilized example of this extremely decay-prone tissue. The bone marrow, preserved in threeExpand
The role of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species in cellular iron metabolism
TLDR
It is suggested that reactive oxygen and nitrogen species can significantly affect iron metabolism and their interaction with iron-regulatory proteins (IRPs) seems to be one of the essential mechanisms of influencing iron homeostasis. Expand

TLDR
Paleohistological research is proving to be the most promising avenue towards gaining a comprehensive understanding of dinosaur biology. Expand
Diagenesis and survival of osteocalcin in archaeological bone
Abstract It has been demonstrated that the protein osteocalcin can survive in bone in the archaeological record, and postulated that it has the potential to survive over geological time periods. TheExpand
Fine-grained debris flows and extraordinary vertebrate burials in the Late Cretaceous of Madagascar
Vertebrate fossils are remarkably abundant and exceptionally well preserved within the Upper Cretaceous Maevarano Formation of northwestern Madagascar. The vast majority of these fossils, includingExpand
