An Early Ostrich Dinosaur and Implications for Ornithomimosaur Phylogeny
Abstract A new ornithomimosaur from the Yixian Formation of Liaoning Province People's Republic of China is described. These beds are near the Jurassic-Cretaceous boundary. This specimen isExpand

Plumage Color Patterns of an Extinct Dinosaur
Dinosaur Plumage Coloration and appearance provide important behavioral and evolutionary information in animals. However, for the most part, we do not know the coloration of fossil terrestrialExpand

A Life Table for Psittacosaurus lujiatunensis: Initial Insights Into Ornithischian Dinosaur Population Biology
Very little is known about nonavian dinosaur population biology. Multi‐individual sampling and longevity estimation using growth line counts can be used to construct life tables—the foundation forExpand

Late Jurassic salamanders from northern China
With ten extant families, salamanders (urodeles) are one of the three major groups of modern amphibians (lissamphibians). Extant salamanders are often used as a model system to assess fundamentalExpand

A longirostrine tyrannosauroid from the Early Cretaceous of China
The fossil record of tyrannosauroid theropods is marked by a substantial temporal and morphological gap between small-bodied, Barremian taxa, and extremely large-bodied taxa from the latestExpand

The distribution of integumentary structures in a feathered dinosaur
Non-avian theropod dinosaurs with preserved integumentary coverings are becoming more common; but apart from the multiple specimens of Caudipteryx, which have true feathers, animals that areExpand

Earliest known crown-group salamanders
Salamanders are a model system for studying the rates and patterns of the evolution of new anatomical structures. Recent discoveries of abundant Late Jurassic and Early Cretaceous salamanders areExpand

A giant ornithomimosaur from the Early Cretaceous of China
Ornithomimosaurs (ostrich-mimic dinosaurs) are a common element of some Cretaceous dinosaur assemblages of Asia and North America. Here, we describe a new species of ornithomimosaur, BeishanlongExpand

A gliding lizard from the Early Cretaceous of China
Gliding is an energetically efficient mode of locomotion that has evolved independently, and in different ways, in several tetrapod groups. Here, we report on an acrodontan lizard from the EarlyExpand

A new choristodere (Reptilia: Diapsida) from the Lower Cretaceous of western Liaoning Province, China, and phylogenetic relationships of Monjurosuchidae
The publication of the scientific name Monjurosuchus splendens in 1940 documented the first tetrapod fossil of the later world-renowned Jehol Biota. For more than half a century since this discovery,Expand
