one of which had human subjects follow a scent trail along the ground
blood-hound style (head down, backside up). Humans faired surprisingly
well at following even faint scent trails.
See, for instance,
And esp this one
Study shows humans have ability to track odors, much like bloodhounds
Which isn't to say our ability to detect smells is great, just better
So to bring this around to dinos, what does this avian bloodhound study
imply for dinos?
