The science magazine Discover has covered the research of SMU vertebrate paleontologist Louis L. Jacobs and the infamous Bone Wars of the late 1800s. In a post on Discover's "80 beats" blog, the magazine reprinted the translation of a poem written by frontier naturalist and fossil hunter Jacob Boll. Jacobs came across the poem at the American Museum of Natural History on a label on the back of Eryops specimen No. AMNH 4183.
