Dr. Hillary Maddin co-authors paper in Nature Communications

Dr. Hillary Maddin has co-authored a paper that was published in Nature Communications entitled, "Early Jurassic dinosaur fetal dental development and its significance for the evolution of sauropod dentition"

Carleton Professor Hillary Maddin was part of an international research team who recently studied the excellently preserved embryonic jawbones of an early sauropodomorph dinosaur called Lufengosaurus – a distant relative of the giant, long-necked sauropod dinosaurs. These embryonic dinosaur skeletons are among the oldest in the world and even preserve several jaws with teeth still inside.
