Why Don’t Turtles Still Have Tail Spikes? Researchers Explain Why Tail Weaponry is Rare
The evolution of tail weaponry in Ankylosaurus and Stegosaurus required a ‘perfect storm’ of traits that aren’t seen in living animals, which is why tail weaponry is rare even in the fossil record.
Radiation Therapy Algorithm Could Substantially Reduce Side Effects, Maintain Effect Against Tumors
New mathematical model for computing radiation therapy treatments could reduce patient side effects while delivering the same results as conventional radiation therapy.
