Neural crest origins of the neck and shoulder
TLDR
The skeleton that is identified as neural crest-derived is specifically affected in human Klippel–Feil syndrome, Sprengel's deformity and Arnold–Chiari I/II malformation, providing insights into their likely aetiology. Expand
A re‐examination of sarcopterygian interrelationships, with special reference to the Porolepiformes
A re-examination of sarcopterygian inter-relationships, with special reference to the Porolepiformes
Lower jaws, lower tetrapods–a review based on the Devonian genus Acanthostega
The lower jaw of the Devonian tetrapod Acanthostega is described for the first time. Redescriptions are provided for the lower jaws of the elpistostegid Panderichthys , the Devonian tetrapodsExpand
A Silurian placoderm with osteichthyan-like marginal jaw bones
TLDR
A three-dimensionally preserved 419-million-year-old placoderm fish from the Silurian of China is described that represents the first stem gnathostome with dermal marginal jaw bones (premaxilla, maxilla and dentary), features previously restricted to Osteichthyes. Expand
ANOMALOCARIS AND OTHER LARGE ANIMALS IN THE LOWER CAMBRIAN CHENGJIANG FAUNA OF SOUTHWEST CHINA
TLDR
The radial arrangement of the circum‐oral sclerites suggests that anomalocaridids were related to aschelminth worms rather than to arthropods. Expand
A new tristichopterid (Osteolepiformes: Sarcopterygii) from the Mandagery Sandstone (Late Devonian, Famennian) near Canowindra, NSW, Australia
New trischopterygid (Osteoplepiformes: Sarcopterygii) from the Mandagery Sandstone (Famennian) near Canowindra, N.S.W. Australia
Devonian rhizodontids and tristichopterids (Sarcopterygii; Tetrapodomorpha) from East Gondwana
ABSTRACT Devonian rhizodontid fishes from East Gondwana include Gooloogongia loomesi Johanson & Ahlberg 1998 from near Canowindra, New South Wales (NSW), Australia and Aztecia mahalae gen. nov., sp.Expand
Second tristichopterid (Sarcopterygii, Osteolepiformes) from the Upper Devonian of Canowindra, New South Wales, Australia, and phylogeny of the Tristichopteridae
ABSTRACT A new tristichopterid, Cabonnichthys burnsi gen. et sp. nov. from the Upper Devonian Mandagery Sandstone near Canowindra, New South Wales, Australia, is the second tristichopterid to beExpand
A primitive placoderm sheds light on the origin of the jawed vertebrate face
TLDR
Propagation phase contrast synchrotron microtomography is used to image the cranial anatomy of the primitive placoderm (jawed stem gnathostome) Romundina, and it is shown that it combines jawed vertebrate architecture with cranial and cerebral proportions resembling those of cyclostomes and the galeaspid Shuyu. Expand
Osteolepiforms and the ancestry of tetrapods
TLDR
The supposedly discredited idea of osteolepiforms as tetrapod ancestors is supported by the first detailed analysis of the lower part of the Tetrapodomorpha, based on 99 characters scored for 29 taxa. Expand
