My first article on a fossil fish was published today in @thePeerJ. We describe remains of the #Jurassic sturgeon-like Gyrosteus, found in an erratic boulder near #Hamburg in #Germany. https://t.co/7tCOZQKatp #Biodiversity #EvolutionaryStudies #Paleontology #Nature #fossil #fish https://t.co/fcIw1VnNL3
