A new phylogeny of ichthyosaurs (Reptilia: Diapsida)
The largest phylogenetic analysis of ichthyosaurs to date is presented, with 114 ingroup taxa coded at species level. Completeness of the taxa included varied from > 98% to < 2%; 10 taxa were removedExpand

The fossil record of ichthyosaurs, completeness metrics and sampling biases
Ichthyosaurs were highly successful marine reptiles with an abundant and well-studied fossil record. However, their occurrences through geological time and space are sporadic, and it is important toExpand

Effects of body plan evolution on the hydrodynamic drag and energy requirements of swimming in ichthyosaurs
Ichthyosaurs are an extinct group of fully marine tetrapods that were well adapted to aquatic locomotion. During their approximately 160 Myr existence, they evolved from elongate and serpentine formsExpand

Does exceptional preservation distort our view of disparity in the fossil record?
How much of evolutionary history is lost because of the unevenness of the fossil record? Lagerstätten, sites which have historically yielded exceptionally preserved fossils, provide remarkable, yetExpand

Convergence and functional evolution of longirostry in crocodylomorphs
During the Mesozoic, Crocodylomorpha had a much higher taxonomic and morphological diversity than today. Members of one particularly successful clade, Thalattosuchia, are well‐known for beingExpand
