  1. doi request reprint Molecular preservation of the pigment melanin in fossil melanosomes
    Johan Lindgren
    Department of Geology, Lund University, 223 62 Lund, Sweden
    Nat Commun 3:824. 2012
    ..Here we expand this knowledge by demonstrating the presence of molecularly preserved melanin in intimate association with melanosome-like microbodies isolated from an argentinoid fish eye from the early Eocene of Denmark...
  2. pmc Three-dimensionally preserved integument reveals hydrodynamic adaptations in the extinct marine lizard Ectenosaurus (Reptilia, Mosasauridae)
    Johan Lindgren
    Department of Earth and Ecosystem Sciences, Lund University, Lund, Sweden
    PLoS ONE 6:e27343. 2011
    ..These features suggest that the anterior torso of Ectenosaurus was held somewhat rigid during swimming, thereby limiting propulsive movements to the posterior body and tail...
  3. pmc Skin of the Cretaceous mosasaur Plotosaurus: implications for aquatic adaptations in giant marine reptiles
    Johan Lindgren
    GeoBiosphere Science Centre, Department of Geology, Lund University, Lund, Sweden
    Biol Lett 5:528-31. 2009
    ..Thus, hydrodynamic requirements of life in the water might have influenced the evolution of multiple-keeled body scales in advanced mosasauroids...
  4. pmc Convergent evolution in aquatic tetrapods: insights from an exceptional fossil mosasaur
    Johan Lindgren
    Department of Earth and Ecosystem Sciences, Lund University, Lund, Sweden
    PLoS ONE 5:e11998. 2010
    ..These new data expand our understanding of convergent evolution among marine reptiles, and provide insights into their evolution's tempo and mode...
  5. pmc Microspectroscopic evidence of cretaceous bone proteins
    Johan Lindgren
    Division of Geology, Department of Earth and Ecosystem Sciences, Lund University, Lund, Sweden
    PLoS ONE 6:e19445. 2011
    ..Thus, the preservation of primary soft tissues and biomolecules is not limited to large-sized bones buried in fluvial sandstone environments, but also occurs in relatively small-sized skeletal elements deposited in marine sediments...
