Small post announcing the publication of a new paper:
Xing, L., M. G. Lockley, H. Klein, P. L. Falkingham, J. Y. U. L. Kim, R. T. Mccrea, J. Zhang, W. S. P. Iv, T. A. O. Wang and Z. Wang (2016). “First early Jurassic small ornithischian tracks from Yunnan Province , Southwestern China.” PALAIOS 31(11): 516-524.
Just a small descriptive paper, but of note is that I’ve made the 3D data for one of the tracks available:
And the model can be viewed on Sketchfab:
Here’s the track featuring in our Figure 8:
The preservation and morphology of these tracks is really interesting. Those raised areas in the centre seem to imply a very soft substrate.
