Media are grouped by projects created by users. Projects tend to contain media tied together by a theme. A project might represent the dataset for a single peer-reviewed paper, the results of a collections digitization project, or data for a digital lesson plan.

Projects can be used to share media ownership and access between project members, and projects can also be used to publish assortments of media and specimens for access and discovery by the public. If you want to share media ownership and access with multiple users across multiple projects, consider creating a user team. Projects can be managed by teams, and users with access to that team also gain access to any projects managed by that team.

Display all details of Rukwasuchus yajabalijekundu-RRBP 08360 CT Scan data for the holotype cranium (RRPB 08630) of Rukwasuchus yajabalijekundu. Collected in 2008 as part of the Rukwa Rift Basin Project (Ohio University, Tanzania Antiquities Unit, University of Dar es Salaam). The paper first describing this specimen was published in 2014 (Sertich and O'Connor, Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, Volume 34, Issue 3, pp. 579-596). Patrick M. O'Connor 2 1

(2021). Morphometric Analysis of the Mandible of Primitive Sabertoothed Felids from the late Miocene of Spain. Journal of Mammalian Evolution. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10914-021-09541-0 ABSTRACT How sabre-toothed felids have evolved their iconic morphology remains unclear because of the patchy fossil record of early machairodontines. Batallones localities in the Madrid region (Spain) have the potential to clarify this as two sites have yielded hundreds of fossils of the early machairodontines Promegantereon ogygia and Machairodus aphanistus. Previous analyses suggested that these two sites are not contemporaneous and a morphological drift between cavities was described for these two species; characterizing intraspecific variability is thus important to better understand the evolution of machairodontines. To tackle this issue, we modelled 62 felid mandibles in 3D using a laser scanner. We applied 3D geometric morphometrics (3D GM) and linear morphometrics on these models to test for differences in populations and to better characterize the morphology of early machairodontines. Both linear measurements and 3D data reveal an absence of morphological changes in mandible shape between between the two sites. Batallones machairodontines are closer to felines than to other, more derived machairodontines in mandibular morphology, suggesting the existence of rapid shift in the mandibular shape between primitive and derived members of the clade. Our analysis did not reveal any allometric relationship between the overall shape of the mandible when studied with 3D GM and body size. Finally, we reveal a previously overlooked diversity in felid mandibular condyles, with machairodontines having much larger and medially inclined condyles. Chatar, Narimane 54 54

Display all details of Beelzebufo ampinga This Morphosource project is intended to provide micro-CT datasets and surface files of specimens and reconstructions to researchers and the general public. The data in this project was used to generate many of the figures in Evans et al. (2014). DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0087236. This work was partially funded by grants from the National Science Foundation ((DEB-9224396, EAR-9418816, EAR-9706302, DEB-9904045, EAR-0106477, EAR-0116517, EAR-0446488, EAR-0116517) and the National Geographic Society (1999, 2001, 2004, 2009) to David W.

Display all details of Visible Human Project 2 Data is the head of a 72 year old male donor. The donor was preserved in formalin and the blood vessels were filled with araldite-F. Full descriptionBrigham and Women's Hospital Havard Medical School Dr. Peter Ratiu ratiu@bwh.havard.edu Data is the head of a 72 year old male donor. The donor was preserved in formalin and the blood vessels were filled with araldite-F. Before freezing, MRI and CAT imaging was preformed. After freezing the specimen was cryo sectioned at 0.147mm intervals and digital photographs were taken with a resolution of 1056 x 1528 pixels. For a complete description of the procedure see: P. Ratiu, B. Hillen, J. Glase and D.P. Jenkins. 'Visible Human 2.0 - The Next Generation' "Medicine Meets Virtual Reality 11 - NextMed: Health Horizon" edited by J.D. Westwood et al.

Display all details of Jurassic Morrison Formation Plant Reproductive Structures A new kind of seed-bearing structure is described based on three-dimensional casts and partially permineralized small cones from the Late Jurassic Brushy Basin Member of the Morrison Formation, in the Henry Mountains of Utah. Cones of Dayvaultia tetragona gen. et sp. nov. are obovate in lateral view, 10.0-11.0 mm long, square in cross section, and 5.1-8.0 mm wide, with a thick wall that opens apically exposing the tips of six or eight elongate, four-lobed seeds. The seeds are borne on a cup-shaped receptacle in a regular opposite and decussate manner. This regular arrangement, as well as similarities to the chlamydospermous seeds of Lobospermum, suggests a relationship to extant Gnetales and their fossil relatives from the Early Cretaceous. The sedimentary context in which the cones occur, combined with their local abundance, suggests that these seed-bearing structures were produced by plants that were common on well-drained floodplains during Morrison times, providing a new insight into the vegetation that supported the diverse vertebrate faunas for which the Morrison Formation is well known 13 4
