Caption: Dinosaur research. Researcher working at a computer workstation on 3D images of dinosaur fossils. The images are based on the results of computed tomography (CT) scans. Scans from different angles are shown on the screen, with a specific bone highlighted in orange. This type of modelling allows researchers to accurately reconstruct a dinosaur's skeleton from what may be only fragmentary remains. Part of the fossil skeleton of a foot is at lower left. The object in the researcher's hand is a dinosaur's claw, also on the screen at left. Photographed in 2011, at the French National Museum of Natural History, Paris, France.
