The colossal size and body plan of sauropod dinosaurs are unparalleled in terrestrial vertebrates. However, to date, there have been only limited attempts to examine temporal and phylogenetic patterns in the sauropod bauplan. Here, we combine three-dimensional computational models with phylogenetic reconstructions to quantify the evolution of whole-body(More)
Eucalyptus camaldulensis Dehnh. is the most widely planted eucalypt in the tropics. Natural populations are riparian and sampling strategies for breeding programmes have assumed that gene flow among drainage basins is limited. RFLP variation, within and among 31 populations from river systems across northern Australia, was analysed to test this hypothesis.(More)
Titanosauria was the most diverse and successful lineage of sauropod dinosaurs. This clade had its major radiation during the middle Early Cretaceous and survived up to the end of that period. Among sauropods, this lineage has the most disparate values of body mass, including the smallest and largest sauropods known. Although recent findings have improved(More)
INTRODUCTION Chronic myeloid leukemia is the first malignant disease to be associated with a genetic lesion and is the first leukemia to provide a genotype model conducive to targeted molecular therapy. It is a chronic clonal myeloproliferative disorder, originating in a pluripotent stem cell common to all three hematopoietic lineages, characterized by(More)
Sauropod dinosaurs include the largest terrestrial animals and are considered to have uninterrupted rapid rates of growth, which differs from their more basal relatives, which have a slower cyclical growth. Here we examine the bone microstructure of several sauropodomorph dinosaurs, including basal taxa, as well as the more derived sauropods. Although our(More)
This work reports on the characterization and identi¢cation of 249 strains of lactic acid bacteria (237 rods and12 cocci) isolated from freshwater ¢sh (mainly wild brown trout) and their surrounding environments. Approximately 90% (226 strains), not able to grow on Acetate (Rogosa) agar, exhibited a high degree of phenotypic homogeneity and were assigned to(More)
Many of the major locomotor transitions during the evolution of Archosauria, the lineage including crocodiles and birds as well as extinct Dinosauria, were shifts from quadrupedalism to bipedalism (and vice versa). Those occurred within a continuum between more sprawling and erect modes of locomotion and involved drastic changes of limb anatomy and function(More)
