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.

Project DIGIT05: catalogues and databases of scientific collections

Paleobotany Collections of the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences are among the largest and richest in Europe. They are unique in the world for the Paleozoic (542-299 Ma) as they contain many type specimens from internationally defined historical and actual stratotypes from existing sites in Belgium
