A herd of young birdlike dinosaurs met their death on the muddy margins of a lake some 90 million years ago, according to a team of Chinese and American paleontologists that excavated the site in the Gobi Desert in western Inner Mongolia. The sudden death of the herd in a mud trap provides a rare snapshot of social behavior. Composed entirely of juveniles of a single species of ornithomimid dinosaur (Sinornithomimus dongi), the herd suggests that immature individuals were left to fend for...

Beishanlong is a genus of giant ornithomimosaurian dinosaur from the Early Cretaceous Period of China 100 to 125 million years ago. It was described in 2009 by a team of Chinese and American paleontologists. The type species is B. grandis. Three fossils were discovered in northwestern China, in the province of Gansu. This dinosaur was closely related to the Harpymimus. Together, these two dinosaurs split off from the main ornithomimosaurian branch of dinosaurs just below Garudimimus....

  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
