Life reconstruction of Xenoceratops by Nobumichi Tamura, 2012.

This past year was a very productive one for the entire lab, as well as our collaborator Michael Ryan. We were fortunate enough to have had some of our work appear in a few reviews of the most significant dinosaur discoveries of the past year. The paper describing  the new horned dinosaur Xenoceratops was also publicized by the National Research Council Press as the “Most Read” paper in the Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences in 2012.

Xenoceratops was on a number of year end lists, including CTV News’ Top-10 Science Stories of 2012 and Mashable’s list of ‘10 Astonishing Species Discovered in 2012′ (no. 5).

The leptoceratopsid Unescoceratops koppelhusi, which we named in honor of Eva Koppelhus in March of 2012, was also featured  in Maclean’s List of Seven Coolest Dinosaur Discoveries in Canada.

A new illustration of Xenoceratops by Nobumichi Tamura also appeared in his review of 2012 dinosaur discoveries– thanks to him for allowing me to post his illustration here!
