Abstract

Despite the many reconstructions of fossil material that have recently appeared in the literature, dinosaur eggshells have never been reconstructed using computing techniques. Using the EMAC 3-D modelling methodology, we reconstruct a section of the Late Cretaceous Megaloolithus siruguei eggshell, which has a particularly complex pore system, exhibiting an intricate network of vertical, oblique, and horizontal pores.

Resumen (otros idiomas)

A pesar de las numerosas reconstrucciones de material fósil que han aparecido recientemente en la literatura, las cáscaras de dinosaurio nunca han sido reconstruidas mediante el uso de técnicas de computación. Usando la metodología de modelización EMAC 3-D, reconstruimos una sección de la cáscara de huevo de Megaloolithus siruguei del Cretácico tardío, la cual tiene un sistema de poros particularmente complejo, exhibiendo una intrincada red de poros verticales, oblicuos y horizontales.
