"Which episode number one but even just three hundred feels like just yesterday. Yes but in our three hundred and fifteenth episode. We have a bunch of news including a hole deep dive into a dinosaur khloe kaz which was quite the rabbit hole to go down including the rabbit hole where you found out that the plural of weak- is khloe goes. I think so. There was one peer review article that used the term khloe kaz in the title everywhere else. I saw said clue but since one person did an it waco's because it just seems more natural. This must be about this attack. Source it is. Yeah and i think you have an article about a triceratops right in australia. A very complete one. And i've got the dinosaur of the day raul navis. I think we've been pronouncing that one wrong a lot. Like ron avis possible. Our pronunciations of dinosaur names evolve over time you we tried to get to a closer consensus over die but it is difficult also really quickly. We finished our survey. Thank you to everyone who answered. And i just wanna quickly point out that if you're listening to this podcast the reason we had that weird question about whether you think we talk too fast or slow is because i feel like we talked to slow and sabrina sometimes tells me i talked to slow but then we heard from some people that they thought. Our podcasts was way too fast. So i felt like i had no idea what people thought but i think ninety percent of people said it was about right but if you're one of the ten percent of people that don't like the speed we talk at. You should download the podcast app that allows for variable speed most of them. Allow that now. And you can't crank us up to like three x speed if we're talking really to slow or you can even slow down and do like a slow kind of he forget to fast. It might sound a little chip monkey with depends on the podcast player. Some of them are really good at pitch correcting so it doesn't sound chip monkey. It's just a little bit faster. I'm on android and i use an app called pocket casts mostly because it allows that timeshare videos too so a lot of podcast apps. Don't even let you watch video podcasts. And if they do they don't let you change the speed of them. But podcast does. And i think there are a few others that do but all that is to say that. If you don't like this be we talk. There are some handy solutions built into most podcast apps. So definitely check that out. If it's something that bothers you. Another thing can do is trim silence so if the pauses in between our words or sentences bothers you. You can cut that out to. It's almost like editing. Your own podcast. Kinda was all automatic. Yeah which is cool. There are some podcasts. I listen to well change it like there's one segment that's really slow like if you think garrett talks super slow but sabrina talks too fast. You could speed up my parts and downs and marinas parts. I do that on some guests where the hosts are all out of whack. Hopefully we're not too bad but it's an option and real quickly as always we want to thank our patrons who are the driving force behind dino dino and this week we'd like to thank the georgia's family graham james pascoe cosmic pariser callum christine jackson crawford ellen worker source and han yet. Thank you so much because of your support we can keep podcast going and we really love doing it. And we also love talking to people in our discord which is one of the perks. If you join so check out our page patriot dot com slash. I know dino. Yeah while preparing for this episode. I was procrastinating for about an hour or two undescored chatting to people about some dinosaur museums and things so time well worth spending arctic. So yes i get to start with the news today because we got some feedback in the survey that people. I get when i start. They said that they thought we should mix it up more. Not the you were better at starting. Thank you very much. That's not how i heard it of course so to start in malvern via museums victoria. Now has the world's most complete triceratops skeleton which is eighty seven percent complete museums victoria. That's the group of museums okay. But it's probably in the natural history variant. Yeah and that one's called the melbourne museum. Gotcha eighty seven percent complete. Which is amazing that includes skin impressions tendons and a nearly complete skull and spine. Wow the skull means not that much when it comes to try saratov's because those things appear just all over the place but the tendons and skin impressions and even the spine is pretty cool to find for a triceratops definitely. Well the goal in this case. It's actually ninety nine percent complete and it weighs five hundred and seventy five pounds or two hundred and sixty one kilograms. So it's still good because there's a lot of triceratops skulls out there but i don't think all of them are that complete. I wonder if that's a smaller individual. Because five hundred and seventy five pounds actually sounds kind of light. Do you remember a museum of the rockies. One of those like the size of a car that would have weighed significantly. More than five hundred seventy bucks. I thought they were around six hundred pounds. But i can't remember although depending on who this is. They might consider that to be a taurus horse. So maybe triceratops has an upper limit on size. If you go down that whole choice ceratops indoors are the same thing in all of the news and press items about this though. It said this was a triceratops hortus an adult interesting but according to some people again. An adult triceratops hortus is a taurus source. That has the holes in the frills. So i guess they're going with triceratops and torturers are different being.

Tom Sent us a pdf of it. which will be in our show notes on our website so you can go to our website and you can get a copy of that? They're also have a link to some of the things we talked about including the video of the Melbourne Museum. So if you're interested in any of that then head over to our longer shown outs which are on. I know dot com and now onto our dinosaur of the day melena resource which was a request from dinosaur four six. Oh two so thanks. Six Millennia was a sore potter more of the lived in the late triassic and what is now South Africa in the Elliot formation. It was probably our business. It had fourteen Ortiz on each side of the pre Mexa and nineteen teeth on each side of its maximum. It was quadrupedal and it had sturdy limbs like a sore pod and a large body it was estimated to be about twenty six feet or eight meters long and weigh one point three tonnes not too big for us or pod. But I guess we're on the traffic and it's a sore pot morph oh true millennia. was probably a facultative bipeds and that means that it could walk or run on two legs but normally used for so who is mostly quadrupedal. It had a somewhat pointed snout and a triangular skull the type species is Melena restorers Redeye and it was found founded on the north slope of the Thaba Nyama Black Mountain in Eastern Cape and Free State provinces in South Africa. The genus name means Black Mountain Lizard that it was described in nineteen twenty four by Sidney Haughton there used to be a second species molyneaux resources dobbins is named in Nineteen ninety-three by francois-xavier golf based on a femur found in the Elliot formation of Lou in nineteen fifty nine but in two thousand sixteen a study found that the femur and other bones were actually a new type of dinosaur Marocchino Mirror. Ten of stubborn insists. There's also a synonym for Millennia. Resource Roca source tetris. Gross that was named in Nineteen eighty-four by Van Heerden and others. But now wow that's considered to be a normal. Newsroom is not too much information on it. In nineteen twenty four Houghton wrote that the bones consist of a Tibia. A fibula part of the pelvis ask some vertebrae and metatarsal together with a femur lying partly embedded in the overlying sandstone and the proximal half of a humorous phone weather down the slope. They are in the collection of the South South African Museum. And in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine inherited analyze this tight material and assigned most of it to euskelosaurus except for sacral Tibia and Femur in one thousand nine hundred seven Van Heerden appear golden referred another specimen to molyneaux resource redeye based on the femurs being similar in two thousand five Golden Van. Heerden and Yates said that many additional bones mostly of Plato stores were assigned to Melena resources. Nineteen twenty four. They also referred a new specimen to molyneaux resource read. I had said the dinosaur. Aw was a quote Sore Pot. Morphou Incertus said spending further analysis of the hall type and of all the referred specimens and quote. And that basically means they don't know where it fits in the family tree in two thousand seven. Yates revised the diagnosis is some of the specimens. But not the type specimens there were two and this is known as the sin gene type. Yates also described a referred skull. So there's some uncertainty around millennial resource now since the sin type specimens haven't been studied in a while and they should be reexamined to identify diagnostic unique features. And the way scientists think of MOLENAAR source now is based on the referred specimens. Yeah but some of the referred specimens are indirectly referred. They're referred based on a referred specimen homework up so it seems that Milan resource in general needs to be reexamined examined. The sin type both specimens are housed.

"Dinosaurs were around in the early Cretaceous it was at about seventy degrees south putting well within the Antarctic circle and officially polar holier in quotes because you know Antarctic or Arctic makes a polar. They found ten feathers total including everything from down unlike body feathers to flight feathers or at least flight ish feathers asymmetric. And that's Kinda the keys to flight as having these asymmetric feller so that the air going over the top gives you the newly effect anyway. The range of these feathers is from ten to thirty millimeters long basically careening that they're all under about an inch so these aren't massive feathers coming from big dinosaurs. These are small installation feathers or maybe a little feathers that that might have helped with flying on a small bird kind of thing. That's what we're looking at. They also used some microscopes to check out. How many millenniums or other her characteristics they could find and they found what looks like you Milan's oems or the black colored Molina's homes and they appear pretty even across the feathers so maybe they were evenly covered? But we're looking at individual feathers. We're not really looking at full feathered dinosaur. So it's a little bit less useful for figuring out the kind of patterning on the bird itself her dinosaur. I should say they give some interesting reasons though for having dark colored feathers that give the usual you know maybe maybe it was used for signalling you know species recognition or maybe for blending into the environment but an interesting one. We don't usually think about is. Maybe they use them to to absorb more light and therefore heat in the cold Antarctic environment that they lived in. If you're interested in seeing these feathers some of them are are on display in the six hundred million years exhibition at the Melbourne Museum.

"This is an ABC podcast high. They this podcast is one of your end our favorite shows from the and it's well, it's a good one for you Christmas ride troops. Remember, those long road trips as a keyed buckled up in the backstage, endless interminable games of ice spy. Are we there yet men when the car stopped and you got out to finally stretch your legs relief? Do you? Remember that cornucopia of insects, plastic Olivia bonnet and bumper and heavy noticed that you might just get a few stray squash bugs on a long trip these days, but nothing like the carnage of the past where have all the insects gone. Welcome to science friction Haina Tesche, which with you last year. You might have read those shocking headlines, climbing, the world's insects are being what dad on mass not just Bs but other species too, and it matters because if insects disappear way probably will too, but hang on. Disappearing. Billions of them invade salvos failure. And the state declares war. Mobiles bring guns deadly. Already in swarm after swarm move across the countryside. Devouring? Mosquito players hit the top end stretching Donald Gretchen each. There's another one now doing battle with a plague of grasshoppers. The health infinitely shop. She's joined. Plane. The European Union. After years of debate has just banned three tops of widely use Neo nicotinoid pesticides because of their talk city to vital pollinating insects like bees, whether we like it or not allies, depend on six legged friends. Oh, I think they're amazing into Maula just Dr mono saunas, the more you dive into their stories and find out what actually do it's just well, it's like it is the best. Well, science. In the label says Tyke in the west kale's on the all white twentieth of what was seventeen eighty six my friend. Mrs Thompson, look at the condition. They're in. Absolutely perfect. Now for us interests. That's a postcard to the past. Well, that's essentially this is Dr king Walker Hayes the super enthusiastic senior curator of the intimate collection at the Melbourne museum. We can actually side that that thing occurred on the all and in seventeen ninety six if it doesn't occur them, then we can ask why there's a story stories until whereas if you didn't have this and you simply head migraine father, someone of the city's got no evidence there, but that's their that's like peer review. This was surrounded by heck supports six legged critters millions of them draw upon draw upon draw. And there's that familiar walk of multiples in the let me show, you another little example. You've heard of Charleston one. Have you heard if Russell Wallace? Yes, we have specimens of Alfred Russel walls. Roundabout at the same time the child Darwin was going round the world got to the Galapagos sold the different fish Biggs. And that and then thought about when you go back to England theory, vivid Lucien, they offer brussel Wallis was going through the Malaya's cappella goes, and he collected a lot of stuff and he went back to England. And he wrote a book called the malaria cappella go in which he spells that they're volition. So he took it to the Royal Society to get published. I said hang on the road called exactly the same theory. Is you these specimens here? So these were handled in collected by offered Russell and they're beautiful looking specimen such papery wings of moths. Manley moths, oh, some Beatles. And all that looks like a grasshopper there. And it's really only when you look back that you're our to understand. And appreciate the value of what they did at the time off at the time. You don't really understand what you're doing? But later on when people say, well that things have been found there again. It's completely new record. Or importantly, it's. A new species that we didn't know. Which is what makes as museum collections? So so volatile the sides they serve as a crucial benchmark scientists estimate. There are over five million different species of insects in the world. But around a million heaven even bane identified or ninety eight so recent claims that is a mess insect extinction happening while they really hard to taste and yet last year headlines screamed that loud and clear, great insect. Dial global ecological meltdown the New York Times aditorial laid with insect Armageddon. Little critters have been attracting big attention of light. And the trigger was a striking study out of Germany and the Netherlands ecologist, Dr casper Hellman from red bowed university was the late author on the study words that I wouldn't have chosen like Armageddon, but they surely did help to spread the news. And the news was alarming. A massive disappearance of insects over three decades at the heart of the study is a passionate group of volunteers. These diehard insect lavas an intimate group in west Germany near the Dutch border system medically sampling in sakes, in a set of protected Nitra reserves. Adjacent agriculture lands. But he's a thing. I've been totally scientific about they're collecting recording temperature variation and landscape and vegetation changes -mongst a whole lot of other variables kept on doing that for many years in the same way. And I did this for thirty years, and they're still doing this. So what darter did they present? You was it, you know, it big bags of insects or insects of alcohol or. Into their collection. And it's it's an amazing school building. And the first floor is full of rooms with shelves with bottles with insects in alcohol. It's it's really amazing to see it. But luckily, that's not what they gave me. They already digitised the weights of each bottle, and the present me just an excel file with with the numbers and why they collected it. This was the white of insects that bad collected H point in time across those thirty years. Yes, exactly. Or another way of describing that is the bio Ness of insects over twenty seven years, they trapped and sampled fifteen hundred bottles of flying insects. That's a lot of legs a wide the samples and the dropoff in the total. Biomass of insects was staggering. Well, we saw seventy six percent in twenty seven years. Yeah. So so three quarters of the buying much of flying. Insects isn't there in nature reserves anymore? We shocked by this result yet. Well, we expect it to Kline's. This is very severe. This is Kenya. Imagine three-quarters away. This is really a lot. It's just empty and sterile empty Abbott soon. That's shocking. If you realize this the number everybody would know, okay. There's probably a lot less insects than in the past with how much less was are known. And then you put a figure in seventy six percent. And you're like, wait a minute. This is this is really scary action. A lot of people made global conclusions about this that the world's insects were in deep decline. Can we make a conclusion like that from one study in one country in one location strictly set note? But so we know quite some things about butterflies, for example, quite more charismatic than you can find more fallen tease out in the field to count them for you. So in new flies down, we know bees are down this goal. We know that in many parts of the world's. But then what about the other thousands and thousands and thousands of species? Are they doing any better? And this study was what made it. Well, if you go and measure, their weight, you will see the same baton that is tremendous decline. So you think there is a global story to be drawn from this. Yes. Although we don't have the data, and let's face it in science without data is no conclusion to be drawn. But what I'm afraid of that? There's lack of knowledge ignorance that we have fuel as our inaction to do something we are late right with thirty years. Too late. We should have seen this declined coming way before we could have done something with nobody was counting insects. And so now, we thirty years down the road. And we find ourselves troubles caught. Everyone by surprise. There had to be some other studies pointing towards a decrease say populations, but nothing as dramatic as that. Ari Hoffman is leading into malicious Tim biologist at the bio twenty one institute at the university of Melvin of course, you know, it was one of those situations where are walls a careful study over a long period of time and those studies can be incredibly valley. You will. But I'm not done often enough. Unfortunately, Nari grew up in New Zealand in Assam family. He's parents ran a market garden attention to insects. You could say it's in his blood. The reasons for the dramatic decline in insects in this European study aren't cle- there. Awesome. Prime suspects excessive use insecticides land clearing urban sprawl and intensive agriculture to meet heavy consumer demands of the lease. But do these results herald, an insect again, I tend to be bit suspicious when I say headlines that into Maula just Montessori disease opposed doctoral research, fellow at the university of New England, and she's studying the benefits of wild pollinating, six culture. So the good bugs, not just the pace Spacey's a firmly. It was bit of an accident. When I got to my honors year. I actually started my project my honest project on koalas, and that Phil free, and I had to sort of quickly find something to finish up my own year with them and may happen to be an insect project valuable in at the time. I remember thinking, really. Insects. Oh, I have to do. Come on. And here footage. She hasn't. Looked back bugs have got onto her scheme to she's co-founder of the annual wild poll night at can't in a strategy, which you can be part of takeout science fiction website. And she writes, a blog called ecology is not a dirty word, but back to Armegeddon and the serious question of whether the world's insects are going. Under Armageddon is a pretty serious thing, we own I wanted involves across the globe sort of things was thinking, hang a minute. There's gotta be more to the story because nothing's actually been done. That's go. So I mean, the study actually only measured by which is so grams of insect bodies in these traps, so that doesn't tell you anything about what type of insects. They were or how many insects with their, and you know, one blow. Fly can weigh the same as one hundred yards or something to really sort of measure a decline in insect, diversity or speech. She's you need to know more about what actual insects of it. I saw a lot of headlines we all you know, insect abundances fallen in the seventy percent in the last twenty seven years at cetera et cetera. Which is a big figure. It is a scary one. It is. And it's a my I mean, we should be doing twenty-seven years studies. That's that's an awesome long-term monitoring data that is the holy grail in ecology. But with this study, there was no one saw that had actually been followed for the entire twenty seven year period. I mean as a whole it's still an important data set, it's really well done. And it's everything is rejected about it. But it doesn't tell you anything about whether these particularly use that was sampled were, you know, with a outbreak keys was there like a really severe winter that killed off a lot of insects United sign many environmental things that can affect year to year fluctuations in in insect populations. And that doesn't come out when you any sample once Twas, but might all of a sit up my well, I'm concerned. That is making a direct comparison between Europe and ustralia. I would not be surprised if there was a marked decrease in the biomass. But is a twenty percent. Thirty percent is fifty percent being a scientist with having data on very hesitant to make a conclusion has anyone done work like that anywhere else in the world. Not to that extent. And not for that reason. No one to mind, Allah, just on a by a mess study with a book, the white physical white of the insects that were collecting that hasn't been done as an Australian scientist looking at that study could we do the same here. Do we have the same picture? So the answer is we don't have the same picture at all. And we should get the same picture. I think we do want an national grid. If you like of traps that are going out on measuring these sorts of things he gets a good question. We don't ignore the corals, Dewey. We spend a lot of money monitoring the corals very well. And we don't do that with a lot of frustration sex or even our quality six despite the fact that they are, of course, well from an economic point of view in terms of supporting our life probably much more important than the gray area.

"Hey. Tesha Mitchell joining you this week for another science friction live from the floor of the Melbourne museum. So we're told that learning maths and science matters a whole heap for the careers of the future and not just for those who go on and become scientists or mathematicians all sorts of jobs. I mean, Netflix even employs mathematical minds as days, it's part of the history of knowledge. It's pot of mankind's like appreciation for the wealth. But it's also very part of the inquiry process pot of what really drives us to be this way. What really drives us to live in the well this way, and I think that's just really cool. You don't have to go on to become a Nobel laureate or a racer or a science teacher. But you do need to have in the win the world around you so studying science and Mets not only raises your awareness of the world around you. But also gets you to think in an open way, you use your critical thinking skills easier problem solving skills, and it takes a lot of hard work as well. I think maybe a bit of the work ethic aspect in combination with the creativity. I'm expected to exhibit Mamie just realize that science is something that is not only beautiful that is not only useful. But it's also something that is fundamentally a pot of us. And yet so many kids more and more than a running a mile from science and math subjects at school. Something's really going astray. What exactly and can we stem the tide? The if Betty Chung speaking there, who's finishing you twelve at the Methodist ladies college, she's founder of the Victorian student science scored which links up Hough school students around science events. You also heard from Sola banish alone time science teacher, president of the science teaches association, Victoria, and director of quantum Victoria, which develop a whole lot of science programs for school students imitators across Victoria. Also on the show is Eddie. Woo. Who's causing a big stir? We've he's Chubu channel. He was a top ten finalist in last year's global teacher prize, and is author of a new book wonderful world of maths. He's hit Mets teacher at cherry brook technology high school in Weston CBI. Paid a coke kill has taught in schools from rural Maryvale to Frank Ston to Brunei he's founding principle of the John Monash science school Victoria's first specialist science high school and was principal of the year in the state in two thousand sixteen. When you started out you loved history and English at school, not maths. Thank mats. He didn't feel about good Abed was definitely humanities buff. And I still I still love stories and characters and and the tension when you try to work out what's happening in a mystery. But when I looked at mass, it was sort of characterize myself this way, all those sills adults that I now race through as I could see them as a student memorize them for just enough time to get through that damn put a number in get a number out cross my fingers, really hot. And the monks were good enough that I could say, yeah, I can do but do not have much of a fundamental grasp of why are we learning calculus? I can draw an in Jerusalem, really neatly. But I don't really know what the point of it is. And for me. There was a very rich lack of appreciation of what was crafted. Why did fractions lead to algebra which led to treat an almond tree which led to? There was actually a story on that. I was told us at all. I mean, I say that a lot I'm now wondering if I was told and I just didn't listen lesson. Just like everyone else. But for me that watershed moment was to be able to get to university with the full intent to become an English and history and to say to find out actually that there was this critical shortage of mathematics and science. Teachers particularly physics, and this is what it was like fifteen years ago. It's still true today. And I had a professor push me and say, this is this is where there's need would you consider going this direction rather than that? And so that was kind of what sent me done this rabbit hole. Pay to-. What is this conversation matter for you? And how would you respond to the third annual who says amid gonna use these why do I need to learn about maths what do logo rhythms have to do with anything?.
