After an extended gestation, Tristychius -the jaws paper-, is finally out, published in Science Advances: ‘High-performance suction feeding in an early elasmobranch’.  The work highlights collaboration with Aaron Olsen (Brown University) and his “linkR” package, enabling quantified exploration of 3D jaw motion throughout the bite cycle in this 335 million year old shark. Kristen Tietjen’s renderings provide unprecedented views of the complete cranial skeleton and a remarkably life-like reconstruction.
