»Michael Rothman DescriptionThis reconstruction depicts a mother Hypacrosaurus stebingeri examining the fresh corpse of one of her young that has expired in the shallow waters of a pond. The scene takes place in the Late Cretaceous (Campanian era) of Montana. The illustration was prepared for the cover of the National Science Review (Oxford) at this URL: s://doi.org/10.1093/nsr/nwz206 (the lead author is Dr. Alida Bailleul from the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology in Beijing) , and also appears accompanying a news brief written by Michael Greshko, on the nationalgeographic.com website for their March 2020 edition. Hypacrosaurus-stebingerie dead juvenile hadrosaur symbolically portrays the possible source for evidence of proteins, chromosomes and chemical markers of DNA in its exceptionally preserved dinosaur cartilage.
