Missing picture of microbe trails and thanks to Aragon Systems

Posted by TomKaye on 30 Jul 2008 at 18:39 GMT

Hello All,

I am Tom Kaye lead author of the paper. One of the reviewers wanted a comparison picture of microbe trails we found in the bones but unfortunately we never got permission to use it and had to pull it at the last second. It is however available on the web so to make everyone happy we are posting the link here.


We would also like to add a special thanks to who provided the terrific image processing software that we used.

I will be monitoring this site if anyone has any questions.
