New Index Reveals Likelihood of Terrestrial or Aquatic Lifestyles of Extinct Mammals
25-July-2016

Researchers at Nagoya University establish a new index based on rib strength measurement, which can use fossil records to predict whether extinct mammalian species lived exclusively in the water, were occasionally on land, or were fully land-based.
