Modelling tooth–prey interactions in sharks: the importance of dynamic testing

screen-shot-2016-09-19-at-7-29-53-pmI’m really excited to say that the shark saw paper has been published in Royal Society Open Science! One of several papers to come out of the Friday Harbor Labs’ 2014 Functional Morphology and Ecology of Fishes course, my coauthors Stacy Farina, Adam Summers, Jeff Brash, and I explored the importance of shark tooth morphology and repeated use on tooth cutting ability and wear, and found that dynamic testing is vital to studying tooth performance.
