ColdCase: re-opening of the Bernissart Iguanodon crime scene

The Early Cretaceous Iguanodon Sinkhole at Bernissart is a unique fossil deposit owing to the quantity and preservation quality of Iguanodon. Since its discovery 136 years ago, the processes leading to the local accumulation of so many complete skeletons remain completely unexplained. This project aims to evaluate different taphonomic scenarios.

General structure an evolution of the brain of ornithopod dinosaurs

The purpose of this project is to describe the endocranial casts (in silicone and virtual) of ornithopod dinosaurs from Europe and Asia, and establish comparisons with other archosaurs.
