Bite and Feed
The majority of papers on Dunkleosteus are focused on one of two things: either describing and referring new partial specimens or discussing bite force and feeding strategies. There are most likely other paper topics, but they are buried in the search results. In the interest of interesting topics, I have only chosen to share the two newest bite force papers to share. Mechanics and bite force modeling from 2007 are a good way to start. An update to that model and the feeding mechanics of Dunkleosteus appeared two years later in 2009. In a totally unrelated document there is mention of Dunkleosteus in a document by Rebecca Kagle discussing fish evolution.
