FEMORAL DIMENSIONS AND BODY SIZE OF ALLIGATOR MISSISSIPPIENSIS: ESTIMATING THE SIZE OF EXTINCT MESOEUCROCODYLIANS
Abstract Total length, snout-vent length, and body mass are tightly correlated with length and other dimensions of the femur in Alligator mississippiensis. American alligator-based equations relating… Expand
Comparison of body mass estimation techniques, using Recent reptiles and the pelycosaur Edaphosaurus boanerges
- Grant R. Hurlburt
- 14 June 1999
ABSTRACT Body mass estimation is important for the study of relative brain size, biomechanics, and other physiological and ecological aspects of extinct vertebrates. Body mass of Edaphosaums… Expand
Relative Size of Brain and Cerebrum in Tyrannosaurid Dinosaurs: An Analysis Using Brain-Endocast Quantitative Relationships in Extant Alligators
Brain and cerebrum mass are estimated from endocasts of three tyrannosaurid taxa (Tyrannosaurus rex, Gorgosaurus, and Nanotyrannus) using morphological and quantitative brain-endocast relations in a… Expand
Body mass estimates of phytosaurs (Archosauria: Parasuchidae) from the Petrified Forest Formation (Chinle Group: Revueltian) based on skull and limb bone measurements.
Phytosaurs were the largest and most common semi-aquatic predators of the Late Triassic. Although their skulls are relatively common in the fossil record, articulated, or even associated skeletons… Expand
