Photogrammetry is increasingly becoming the gold standard for surface digitizing in paleontology. We present techniques for specimen handling, photography and image handling in photogrammetry
Biology of the sauropod dinosaurs: the evolution of gigantism
There is no evidence, however, that resource availability and global physicochemical parameters were different enough in the Mesozoic to have led to sauropod gigantism.
A review of gastrolith function with implications for fossil vertebrates and a revised classification
The definitions and ascribed functions of gastroliths are reviewed and the term “exolith” is introduced for isolated clasts with a possible history as geo−gastroliths.
A new xinjiangchelyid turtle from the Middle Jurassic of Xinjiang, China and the evolution of the basipterygoid process in Mesozoic turtles
The homology of basipterygoid processes is confidently demonstrated based on a comprehensive review of the basicranial anatomy of Mesozoic turtles and a new nomenclatural system is introduced for the carotid canal system of turtles.
Multivariate and Cladistic Analyses of Isolated Teeth Reveal Sympatry of Theropod Dinosaurs in the Late Jurassic of Northern Germany
The similarity of the northern German theropods with groups from contemporaneous localities suggests faunal exchange via land-connections in the Late Jurassic between Germany, Portugal and North America.
Dinosaur tracks from the Langenberg Quarry (Late Jurassic, Germany) reconstructed with historical photogrammetry: Evidence for large theropods soon after insular dwarfism
Here we describe dinosaur tracks from the Langenberg Quarry near Goslar (Lower Saxony) that represent the first footprints from the Late Jurassic of Germany discovered outside the Wiehen Mountains.
A Late Jurassic freshwater shark assemblage (Chondrichthyes, Hybodontiformes) from the southern Junggar Basin, Xinjiang, Northwest China
The low enameloid δ18OPO4 values of H. huangnidanensis teeth indicate that at least this taxon was completely adapted to freshwater, in good accordance with the depositional setting and sedimentological results.
Ceratodus tunuensis, sp. nov., a New Lungfish (Sarcopterygii, Dipnoi) from the Upper Triassic of Central East Greenland
ABSTRACT The fossil record of post-Paleozoic lungfishes in Greenland is currently restricted to a few brief reports of isolated and undetermined tooth plates coming from the uppermost Fleming Fjord
