Modelling enrolment in Cambrian trilobites

Abstract:

Trilobites were capable of enrolling in different ways based on the flexible articulation of thoracic segments and associated interlocking devices; the type of enrolment (spiral or sphaeroidal) is thought to have largely depended on the coaptative devices that each trilobite used to enclose the body. Based on X-ray microtomography scans of complete enrolled specimens from the Cambrian, we created three-dimensional (3-D) computer models to assess the kinematics needed to achieve both enrolment...
