  1. This article popped up on my news feed: https://www.cnn.com/2022/09/23/world/dinosaur-egg-fossils-extinction-scn/index.html The paper is apparently paywalled: https://www.pnas.org/doi/abs/10.1073/pnas.2211234119 It seems sensational to claim that dinosaur diversity was low based on analysis of some eggs in one location. I'd like to read the paper myself if someone has a way to access it. My first reactions: How representative are dinosaur egg fossils of dinosaur diversity? Is there taphonomic bias in this locality, which in this context speaks t

  5. At Tanis, scientists studied the remains of three sturgeons and three paddlefish, using in particular high-resolution X-ray tomographic analysis from the Grenoble European Synchrotron (ESRF).

  12. Hi everyone, Last year we visited a dinosaur show (I believe something like "DinoExpo") in our area in the Alsace (France), where they screened a film about the meteor-strike that killed the dinosaurs. It was spoken in French (though could of course have been voiced-over) and I hadn't seen it before. However, my wife, who normally isn't overly interested in anything dinosaur liked it a lot, to the extent of asking me afterwards whether I could find it so she could finish watching it. As I don't know where to start on it, I thought I'd ask here... So, the documentary's m

  14. Exploding stars may have caused mass extinction on Earth, study shows, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, August 18, 2020 "Killer cosmic rays from nearby supernovae could be the culprit behind at least one mass extinction event, researchers said, and finding certain radioactive isotopes in Earth's rock record could confirm this scenario."

  15. They sequenced 14 woolly rhino genomes and found that they co-existed with humans for thousands of years with stable population sizes. They then conclude that humans did not cause the extinction, but warming of the climate did. What if wooly rhino just tasted bad? Then humans wouldn't hunt them until the other megafauna were extinct. Or we invented barbeque sauce. Then they would disappear in a blink of an eye. Anyway here's the news article: https://phys.org/news/2020-08-ancient-genomes-woolly-rhinos-extinct.html

  20. I read "The Story of the Dinosaurs in 25 Discoveries" by Donald R. Prothero. The author states that paleontologists now mostly do not think that the Chicxulub metor impact killed off the non-avian dinosaurs, and that other explainations are preferred. He did not really explain this statement. That certainly was news to me! I am no professional though. What's the truth?

  24. Does anyone know of anywhere that sells anything from the Permian extinction layer? I have matrix/micro glass beads from the KT boundary layer, but I can’t find anything like that from the Permian/Triassic boundary layer, but I can’t imagine there just wouldn’t be anything for sale anywhere, so I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction. I’d be curious about remnants of any extinction, but I’m specifically interested in anything Permian extinction.
  25. I have been asked this question many times. The non avian Dinosaurs died out the the end of the Mesozoic but many other animal groups survived. Among them were the Crocodilians. And people ask me all the time how they survived while the Dinosaurs didn't. So this has inspired me to make my first video on my dedicated Paleontology channel, Paleo Analysis. I am making these videos for the purpose of education so feel free to share this video as well as future videos! https://youtu.be/Gan8Vu4oM0w
