There exists a term, that I have heard and forgotten it appears, for taking a described species in paleontology and creating a version of what it was like in life.
For example, a prior
[insert this term here] for T Rex had it upright and dragging it's tail, while a more recent
[insert term again] has shown a much more horizontal and rigid body plan.
I know you 'describe' it formally when you identify it from remains, and 'mount' when you set up a specific set of remains. But what is it when you interpret those remains to a specific form?
