French paleontologist Lee Rozada successfully defends doctoral thesis about the Angeac-Charente dinosaur site in France, including a mass death scenario for the stub-forelimb ornithomimosaurs (in French)

Thesis abstract in French and English

ABSTRACT: TAPHONOMY OF THE ASSEMBLAGE OF VERTEBRATE FOSSIL MACROREMAINS OF THE LAGERSTÃTTE OF ANGEAC-CHARENTE (LOWER CRETACEOUS, CHARENTE, FRANCE)....

"...It is dominated by dinosaurs, especially a new species of non-ornithomimid ornithomimosaur, many of whom remain resulting from a catastrophic mass death of a multigenerational herd dominated by juveniles and subadults. "
