Climate constrains the evolutionary history and biodiversity of crocodylians
TLDR
The fossil record of crocodylians and their relatives (pseudosuchians) reveals a rich evolutionary history, prompting questions about causes of long-term decline to their present-day low biodiversity, and the 'balancing forces' of anthropogenic environmental degradation complicate future predictions. Expand
The academic, economic and societal impacts of Open Access: an evidence-based review.
TLDR
This review aims to be a resource for current knowledge on the impacts of Open Access by synthesizing important research in three major areas: academic, economic and societal. Expand
Biotic and environmental dynamics through the Late Jurassic–Early Cretaceous transition: evidence for protracted faunal and ecological turnover
TLDR
These patterns suggest that different extinction selectivity and ecological processes were operating between marine and terrestrial ecosystems, which were ultimately important in determining the fates of many key groups, as well as the origins of many major extant lineages. Expand
The state of the art in peer review
TLDR
The current ebb and flow around changes to peer review is summarized and its role in a modern digital research and communications infrastructure is considered and why uptake of new models of peer review appears to have been so low is suggested. Expand
Osteology of a Near-Complete Skeleton of Tenontosaurus tilletti (Dinosauria: Ornithopoda) from the Cloverly Formation, Montana, USA
TLDR
The character diagnosis of Tenontosaurus tilletti has been revised and redefined into a more robust and quantifiable state, and several of the synapomorphies are out-dated and deemed redundant in favour of a more quantifiable approach. Expand
The academic, economic and societal impacts of Open Access: an evidence-based review
TLDR
This review aims to be a resource for current knowledge on the impacts of Open Access by synthesizing important research in three major areas: academic, economic and societal. Expand
A multi-disciplinary perspective on emergent and future innovations in peer review
TLDR
There is considerable scope for new peer review initiatives to be developed, each with their own potential issues and advantages, and a novel hybrid platform model is proposed that could resolve many of the socio-technical issues associated with peer review, and potentially disrupt the entire scholarly communication system. Expand
Environmental drivers of crocodyliform extinction across the Jurassic/Cretaceous transition
TLDR
A comprehensive analysis of crocodyliform biodiversity through the Jurassic/Cretaceous (J/K) transition is presented using subsampling and phylogenetic approaches and maximum-likelihood methods to fit models of extrinsic variables to assess what mediated these patterns. Expand
Evolutionary relationships and systematics of Atoposauridae (Crocodylomorpha: Neosuchia): implications for the rise of Eusuchia
TLDR
The phylogenetic placement of Theriosuchus has several implications for the understanding of eusuchian evolution, including that this taxon possessed only amphicoelous presacral vertebrae, and therefore fully developed vertebral procoely is likely to have evolved only once in Crocodylomorpha, on the lineage leading to Eusuchia.
