Now-barren Sahara Desert once green and populated
______________________________



15 Aug – While searching for the remains of dinosaurs in the African country of Niger, Paul Sereno of the University of Chicago and colleagues came across some 200 graves of humans, as well as remains of animals, large fish and crocodiles.

"Everywhere you turned, there were bones belonging to animals that don't live in the desert," said Sereno.

The graveyard is near what would have been a lake at the time.

        As we head into the next ice age, I think we can expect the
        desert to bloom again. It’s all part of the ice-age cycle.
