RAWR XD! This week, we’re all about dinosaurs and old geological time periods. Did you know that both the iconic T-Rex and the velociraptor are dinosaurs from the cretaceous period and not from the jurassic period?
Paper of the week: Pollination of Cretaceous flowers, Tong Bao, Bo Wang, Jianguo Li, David Dilcher, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Dec 2019, 116 (49) 24707-24711; DOI:10.1073/pnas.1916186116
