Such fermentation produces methane 쿲as, one of the ''greenhouse gases'' that trap heat in the 쿐arth's atmosphere. 쿓e said scientists have disputed for years the nature of 쿭inosaur digestion, many speculating that fermentation was 쿶nvolved - as it is in the digestive systems of elephants 쿪nd other large mammals - but had been unable to prove it. 쿍rassell and his associates found that proof, he said. =END=
