The strong research value of the Kronosaurus Korner fossil collection is supported by past and current scientific studies on registered fossil specimens in our collection by Australian and international palaeontologists. Descriptions of fossil material within the collection has revealed previously unrecorded information on the anatomy, biology and ecology of ancient fossil creatures. This information has been published in recent peer-reviewed journal articles, including:
*Zammit, M., Norris, R. M. and Kear, B. P. (2010). The Australian Cretaceous ichthyosaur Platypterygius australis: a description and review of postcranial remains. Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology 30: 1726-1735.
*Wretman, L. and Kear, B. P. (2013). Bite marks on an ichthyodectiform fish from Australia: possible evidence of trophic interaction in an Early Cretaceous marine ecosystem. Alcheringa 38: 170-176.

At least a dozen other research projects are in various stages of study, peer-review or in press, with this list continually being updated.
