Researchers get the first detailed look at the tooth replacement pattern of three newly discovered extinct Cretaceous birds from Brazil
Scientists have isolated exquisitely preserved cartilage cells in a 125-million-year-old dinosaur from Northeast China
Dineobellator notohesperus adds to scientists' understanding of the paleo-biodiversity of the American Southwest
New evidence suggests that passive wing flapping may have arisen earlier than gliding flight
Birds produce varying coloration in their feathers by using nanoscale arrays of melanin-filled organelles layered with keratin
Just like human dandruff, dinosaur fossil dandruff is made of tough cells called corneocytes, which in life are dry and full of the protein keratin
Researchers from China, Canada, and the University of Bristol have discovered a dinosaur tail complete with its feathers trapped in a piece of amber
Scientists have successfully replicated the molecular processes that led from dinosaur snouts to the first bird beaks
The study applied new numerical methods that calculate the rate of evolution of different characteristics across a whole evolutionary tree.
New research published in the prestigious journal Science reveals Jurassic Park's depiction of these bird-mimic dinosaurs is not entirely accurate — the ornithomimids, as they are scientifically known, should have had feathers and wings.
