Certain molecules found in shark teeth proteins could tell scientists how the predators are connected to other animals in the food web, according to new research.
In biology, one long-running debate has teeth: whether ancient fish scales moved into the mouth with the origin of jaws, or if the tooth had its own evolutionary inception.
Shark feeding habits are helping scientists identify marks on human bones found in the ocean.
The blue whale is the largest animal that has ever lived. And yet they feed almost exclusively on tiny crustaceans known as krill. The secret is in the baleen, a complex filter-feeding system that allows the enormous whales ...
The first creatures to evolve teeth didn't have jaws. Many scientists believe these ancient fish developed the first tooth-like structures on their skin that were similar to the "denticle" scales that still cover sharks ...
Sharks have a big reputation for their teeth.
A new insight into how sharks regenerate their teeth, which may pave the way for the development of therapies to help humans with tooth loss, has been discovered by scientists at the University of Sheffield.
Archaeologists say they have found evidence indicating that Guam's ancient Chamorros came from two waves of migration.
As an undergraduate student of geology I had become fascinated by palaeontology—in particular the study of marine vertebrate fossils from the Cretaceous period (145-66 million years ago).
Researchers have obtained bioceramics from shark teeth, which have applications in the regeneration of bone tissue, particularly in the fields of traumatology and odontology. Given the degree of innovation and the positive ...
