Vertebrate assemblages from the early Late Cretaceous of southeastern Morocco: An overview
Fossils of vertebrates have been found in great abundance in the continental and marine early Late Cretaceous sediments of Southeastern Morocco for more than 50 years. About 80 vertebrate taxa haveExpand
NEW INFORMATION ON THE SKULL OF THE ENIGMATIC THEROPOD SPINOSAURUS, WITH REMARKS ON ITS SIZE AND AFFINITIES
TLDR
The size of the snout suggests that Spinosaurus may well have exceeded the maximum adult body size of other large Cretaceous theropods such as Tyrannosaurus and Giganotosaurus and the monophyly of the Spinosaurinae and the separation of Sp Dinosaurus and Irritator is supported. Expand
Latitudinal temperature gradient during the Cretaceous Upper Campanian–Middle Maastrichtian: y18O record of continental vertebrates
Latitudinal variations in model biogenic apatite d18O values were calculated using fractionation equations of vertebrates and weighted rainfall y18O values along with mean annual air temperaturesExpand
A new Thai Mesozoic lungfish (Sarcopterygii, Dipnoi) with an insight into post‐Palaeozoic dipnoan evolution
TLDR
A new species of lungfish is described, Ferganoceratodus martini sp. Expand
Pterosaur remains from the Cretaceous of Morocco
KurzfassungAus den Red Beds der Kern Kem-Region von Süd-Marokko wird neues Flugsaurier-Material, bestehend aus zahnlosen Kieferfragmenten und isolierten Zähnen, beschrieben. Die stratigraphischeExpand
Oxygen isotope fractionation between crocodilian phosphate and water
Oxygen isotope compositions of phosphate (δ18Op) were measured in tooth enamel from captive and wild individuals of 8 crocodilian species. A rough linear correlation is observed between the δ18Op ofExpand
Island life in the Cretaceous - faunal composition, biogeography, evolution, and extinction of land-living vertebrates on the Late Cretaceous European archipelago
TLDR
It is shown that there is no clear evidence that dinosaurs or other groups were undergoing long-term declines in Europe prior to the bolide impact, and the importance of the European record in understanding the end-Cretaceous extinction is discussed. Expand
A colubrid snake in the late Eocene of Thailand : the oldest known Colubridae (Reptilia, Serpentes)
Up to now, the oldest known colubrid snakes were fossils from the early Oligocene of Western Europe and from the Arabian Peninsula. An indeterminate colubrid has been recently recovered in the lateExpand
Oxygen isotopes from biogenic apatites suggest widespread endothermy in Cretaceous dinosaurs
The much debated question of dinosaur thermophysiology has not yet been conclusively solved despite numerous attempts. We used the temperature-dependent oxygen isotope fractionation betweenExpand
A new giant pterosaur with a robust skull from the latest Cretaceous of Romania
TLDR
The stout skull bones contrast with the usually thin and slender skull elements of other pterosaurs, and raise the question of how the weight of the skull was reduced in order to make flight possible. Expand
