The fossil vertebrates from Lano (Basque Country, Spain); new evidence on the composition and affinities of the Late Cretaceous continental faunas of Europe
A newly discovered fossil locality at Lano (Basque Country) has yielded a vertebrate assemblage of probably Maastrichtian age comprising fishes, amphibians, reptiles and mammals. It considerably…

Abstract More than 30 well-preserved pterosaurian trackways have been excavated from the site of Crayssac (Lower Tithonian, southwestern France), along with hundreds of isolated imprints. The general…
Bone histology of the ichthyosaurs: comparative data and functional interpretation
The presence of woven-fibered tissue strongly suggests that the limb bones, and probably also the body as a whole, had a rapid postnatal growth in ichthyosaurs, that might have been related to a high, “endotherm-like” metabolic rate.
Oxygen isotope compositions of Late Jurassic vertebrate remains from lithographic limestones of western Europe: implications for the ecology of fish, turtles, and crocodilians
Regulation of Body Temperature by Some Mesozoic Marine Reptiles
Data distribution reveals that these large marine reptiles were able to maintain a constant and high body temperature in oceanic environments ranging from tropical to cold temperate, and suggest high metabolic rates required for predation and fast swimming over large distances offshore.
Cranial anatomy of Pholidosaurus purbeckensis from the Lower Cretaceous of France and its bearing on pholidosaurid affinities
Preliminary description of Thaisaurus chonglakmanii n.g., n. sp., a new ichthyopterygian (Reptilia) from the Early Triassic of Thailand
A new ichthyopterygian from the Lower Triassic of Thailand is described and referred to the new genus and species Thaisaurus chonglakmanii, which is created in place of Anhuisaurus Chen 1985.
