Today, a new paper describing an important feature of the paleoecology of fossil sea cows was published in the journal PLoS ONE. The lead author is Pyenson Lab member and NMNH pre-doctoral fellow Jorge Velez-Juarbe, along with his advisor Daryl Domning (Howard University) and NDP. We'll link more to further coverage on Monday!
