Rinsing system in stomach protects the teeth of ruminants

When they graze, goats, sheep and cows often ingest bits of earth that can be damaging to their teeth. Researchers from the University of Zurich have now shown how the animals protect themselves against dental abrasion: Their ...

3-D nanostructure of a bone made visible

Bones are made up of tiny fibres that are roughly a thousand times finer than a human hair. One major feature of these so-called collagen fibrils is that they are ordered and aligned differently depending on the part of the ...

Imaging techniques help rebuild ancient fauna

A paper summarising a 20-year study into Ordovician-Late Devonian microfauna has revealed new histological data aiding taxonomy and palaeographic reconstructions.
