Postosuchus, a New Thecodontian Reptile from the Triassic of Texas and the Origin of Tyrannosaurs
TLDR
Although Postosuchus exhibits many carnosaurian traits, its ankle joint is of \`crocodile-normal' pattern, which suggests its pseudosuchian affinity, and Tyrannosaurs probably evolved from poposaurids, as indicated by the correlation between skull, pelvis and ankle structure. Expand
The longest voyage: Tectonic, magmatic, and paleoclimatic evolution of the Indian plate during its northward flight from Gondwana to Asia
Abstract The tectonic evolution of the Indian plate, which started in Late Jurassic about 167 million years ago (~ 167 Ma) with the breakup of Gondwana, presents an exceptional and intricate caseExpand
Cranial anatomy of Shunosaurus, a basal sauropod dinosaur from the Middle Jurassic of China
TLDR
As Shunosaurus is the earliest sauropod for which cranial remains are known, it occupies an important position phylogenetically, showing the modification of skull morphology from the prosauropod condition. Expand
New plesiosaurs from the Upper Cretaceous of Antarctica
Abstract New plesiosaur remains from the Upper Cretaceous Lopez de Bertodano Formation (late Campanian-Maastrichtian) of Seymour Island, Antarctic Peninsula include Cryptoclididae and Elasmosauridae.Expand
Neuroanatomy of flying reptiles and implications for flight, posture and behaviour
TLDR
The brain and vestibular apparatus in two pterosaurs are compared based on high-resolution computed tomographic (CT) scans from which they were constructed digital endocasts to shed light on adaptation to an aerial lifestyle. Expand
Dibothrosuchus elaphros, a crocodylomorph from the Lower Jurassic of China and the phylogeny of the Sphenosuchia
ABSTRACT Much of a skeleton of Dibothrosuchus elaphros from the Lower Lufeng Group (Lower Jurassic) of Yunnan, China permits a detailed review of the anatomy and relationships of sphenosuchianExpand
Depositional setting and vertebrate biostratigraphy of the Triassic Dockum Group of Texas
Triassic strata of the Dockum Group in Texas comprise two major upward-fining alluvial-lacustrine depositional sequences. The two sequences are represented by the (1) Santa Rosa-Tecovas, and (2)Expand

Six associated rhynchosaur skeletons, recently discovered by the Geological Studies Unit of the Indian Statistical Institute in the Upper Triassic Maleri Formation, allow an almost completeExpand
The Titanosaur (Dinosauria: Sauropoda) Osteoderm Record: Review and First Definitive Specimen from India
TLDR
A titanosaur osteoderm from the Maastrichtian of India is described that extends the geographic range of these armored sauropods and appears that armored titanosaurs are relatively diminutive in body size. Expand
Biplane wing planform and flight performance of the feathered dinosaur Microraptor gui
TLDR
This reconstruction shows that the wings of Microraptor could have resembled a staggered biplane configuration during flight, where the forewing formed the dorsal wing and the metatarsal wing formed the ventral one. Expand
