The evolution of sauropod feeding mechanisms
Introduction Sauropods were gigantic, long-necked, herbivorous dinosaurs, which dominated many Jurassic and Cretaceous terrestrial faunas. First appearing in the fossil record during the EarlyExpand

A new hypothesis of dinosaur relationships and early dinosaur evolution
For 130 years, dinosaurs have been divided into two distinct clades—Ornithischia and Saurischia. Here we present a hypothesis for the phylogenetic relationships of the major dinosaurian groups thatExpand

A phylogenetic analysis of basal sauropodomorph relationships: Implications for the origin of sauropod dinosaurs2
New discoveries, revision of existing taxa and the application of cladistic analysis have all shed light on the relationships of basal sauropodomorphs. Nevertheless, the interrelationships proposedExpand

Systematics and phylogeny of Stegosauria (Dinosauria: Ornithischia)
Synopsis Stegosauria is a clade of ornithischian dinosaurs characterised by a bizarre array of dermal armour extending, in two parasagittal rows, from the cervical region to the end of the tail.Expand

Sauropod dinosaurs from the Lower Cretaceous of eastern Asia: taxonomic and biogeographical implications
Sauropod dinosaurs are poorly represented in the Lower Cretaceous of eastern Asia. Here, we describe a number of isolated sauropod teeth from the Kuwajima Formation (?Berriasian–?Hauterivian) ofExpand

Phylogeny of the ankylosaurian dinosaurs (Ornithischia: Thyreophora)
Ankylosauria is a diverse clade of quadrupedal ornithischian dinosaurs whose remains are known from Middle Jurassic to latest Cretaceous sediments worldwide. Despite a long history of research,Expand

Inter-Vertebral Flexibility of the Ostrich Neck: Implications for Estimating Sauropod Neck Flexibility
The flexibility and posture of the neck in sauropod dinosaurs has long been contentious. Improved constraints on sauropod neck function will have major implications for what we know of their foragingExpand

THE DIET OF OSTRICH DINOSAURS (THEROPODA: ORNITHOMIMOSAURIA)
:  The diets of ornithomimosaurian dinosaurs (Theropoda: Ornithomimosauria) have proved to be contentious owing to a dearth of unambiguous evidence in support of carnivory, omnivory or herbivory.Expand
