Variation in osteocytes morphology vs bone type in turtle shell and their exceptional preservation from the Jurassic to the present

Here we describe variations in osteocytes derived from each of the three bone layers that comprise the turtle shell. We examine osteocytes in bone from four extant turtle species to form a morphological ‘baseline’, and then compare these with morphologies of osteocytes preserved in Cenozoic and Meso...
