How to weigh a dinosaur

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

How do you weigh a long-extinct dinosaur? There are a couple of ways, as it turns out, neither of which involve actual weighing—but according to a new study, different approaches still yield strikingly similar results.

New research published today in the prestigious journal Biological Reviews involved a review of dinosaur body mass estimation techniques carried out over more than a century.

The findings should lend some confidence that scientists are building an accurate picture of these prehistoric animals, says study leader Dr. Nicolás Campione—particularly the knowledge of the more massive dinosaurs that have no correlates in the modern world.
