    Biol Lett 8:1032-5. 2012
    ..This is contrary to the VBH, which requires compressive forces along the neck. Tension forces would allow important neck muscles to shift back to the trunk region, making the neck much lighter...

    Nicole Klein
    Steinmann Institute of Paleontology, University of Bonn, Bonn, Germany
    PLoS ONE 7:e36907. 2012
    ..Here we describe the long bone histology of the titanosaur Ampelosaurus atacis and compare it to that of basal neosauropods and other titanosaurs to clarify if a special titanosaur bone histology exists...

    Nicole Klein
    Steinmann Institute of Geology, Mineralogy and Palaeontology, University of Bonn, Bonn, Germany
    PLoS ONE 5:e11613. 2010
    ..In the current paper, morphotypes of humeri along with their corresponding bone histologies for Lower to Middle Muschelkalk sauropterygians are described and interpreted for the first time in a phylogenetic context...

    ..Individual life histories of P. engelhardti were influenced by environmental factors, as in modern ectothermic reptiles, but not in mammals, birds, or other dinosaurs...
