The early evolution of titanosauriform sauropod dinosaurs
Titanosauriformes was a globally distributed, long-lived clade of dinosaurs that contains both the largest and smallest known sauropods. These common and diverse megaherbivores evolved a suite ofExpand

A Nomenclature for Vertebral Fossae in Sauropods and Other Saurischian Dinosaurs
Background The axial skeleton of extinct saurischian dinosaurs (i.e., theropods, sauropodomorphs), like living birds, was pneumatized by epithelial outpocketings of the respiratory system. PneumaticExpand

Reassessment of the sauropod dinosaur Jainosaurus (= "Antarctosaurus") septentrionalis from the Upper Cretaceous of India
Early evaluations of sauropod diversity in the Cretaceous of India recognized three genera, “Titanosaurus,” Antarctosaurus, and Laplatasaurus, each of which was thought to have closely relatedExpand

The Titanosaur (Dinosauria: Sauropoda) Osteoderm Record: Review and First Definitive Specimen from India
ABSTRACT Titanosaurs are the only sauropods that possessed osteoderms, although the phylogenetic distribution of this feature within Titanosauria is not yet resolved. Whereas the majority ofExpand

Osteology of Huabeisaurus allocotus (Sauropoda: Titanosauriformes) from the Upper Cretaceous of China
Background The Late Cretaceous titanosauriform sauropod Huabeisaurus allocotus Pang and Cheng is known from teeth and much of the postcranial skeleton. Its completeness makes it an important taxonExpand

CRETACEOUS DIPLODOCIDS IN ASIA? RE-EVALUATING THE PHYLOGENETIC AFFINITIES OF A FRAGMENTARY SPECIMEN
The recent description of an anterior caudal ver- tebra purportedly belonging to a diplodocid sauropod from the Early Cretaceous of China has the potential to drastically alter our interpretation ofExpand

A Sauropod Dinosaur Pes from the Latest Cretaceous of North America and the Validity of Alamosaurus sanjuanensis (Sauropoda, Titanosauria)
ABSTRACT Complete sauropod pedes are rare in the fossil record, which has limited their use in systematics. We describe a nearly complete, large sauropod pes from the Maastrichtian-age NaashoibitoExpand

Revision of the sauropod dinosaurs of the Lower Cretaceous Trinity Group, southern USA, with the description of a new genus
Early Cretaceous sauropods were among the first dinosaurs discovered in North America, but several aspects of their taxonomy and evolution remain poorly understood. Much of this ambiguity stems fromExpand

New Remains Attributable to the Holotype of the Sauropod Dinosaur Neuquensaurus australis, with Implications for Saltasaurine Systematics
The Late Cretaceous South American sauropods Neuquensaurus australis and Saltasaurus loricatus are represented by well-preserved and abundant material that has been integral to our understanding ofExpand

Evolution of High Tooth Replacement Rates in Sauropod Dinosaurs
Background Tooth replacement rate can be calculated in extinct animals by counting incremental lines of deposition in tooth dentin. Calculating this rate in several taxa allows for the study of theExpand
