A ‘fauna’ of vertebrates recovered from a cavern-like deposit at a quarry near the village of Nehden in Sauerland is described and reviewed in some detail. Anatomical descriptions of some skeletal elements are given, where they provide new information or supplement previous descriptions.The clays in which the fossils were buried have been dated comparatively as Aptian (late Lower Cretaceous) and approximately contemporary with the Weald Clay unit of the Wealden Formation of southeast England… Expand
A Lower Cretaceous Lagerstätte from France: a taphonomic overview of the Angeac‐Charente vertebrate assemblage
Terrestrial ecosystems from the Lower Cretaceous of Europe and bonebeds formed in swampy environments are poorly known. The Berriasian‐early Valanginian Angeac‐Charente site in France represents anExpand
An accumulation of dinosaur remains in fluvial deposits of Mulichinco Formation (lower Valanginian, Neuquén Basin), Patagonia, Argentina: Taphonomic and paleoenvironmental inferences
Abstract Although the Neuquen Basin (Argentina) has an extensive record of fossil vertebrates for the Upper Cretaceous, little is known about the Early Cretaceous vertebrate faunas. The MulichincoExpand
Taphonomy and taxonomy of a juvenile lambeosaurine (Ornithischia: Hadrosauridae) bonebed from the late Campanian Wapiti Formation of northwestern Alberta, Canada
Hadrosaurid (duck-billed) dinosaur bonebeds are exceedingly prevalent in upper Cretaceous (Campanian–Maastrichtian) strata from the Midwest of North America (especially Alberta, Canada, and Montana,Expand
On the taxonomy and diversity of Wealden iguanodontian dinosaurs (Ornithischia: Ornithopoda)
The taxonomy of Wealden-aged iguanodontians is reviewed in the light of recent publications that indicate higher levels of taxonomic diversity existed compared to estimates from the recent past. OfExpand
Taphonomy of the Sun River Bonebed, Late Cretaceous (Campanian) Two Medicine Formation of Montana
In the summer of 1998, a bonebed of juvenile dinosaur material was found in beds of the Two Medicine Formation along the Sun River in Teton County, Montana. Initial inspection of the “Sun RiverExpand
A revised taxonomy of the iguanodont dinosaur genera and species
Abstract Criteria for designating dinosaur genera are inconsistent; some very similar species are highly split at the generic level, other anatomically disparate species are united at the same rank.Expand
Perinates of a new species of Iguanodon (Ornithischia: Ornithopoda) from the lower Barremian of Galve (Teruel, Spain)
Abstract Although Iguanodon is one of the most abundant and well-known of Europe's dinosaur genera, fossils of young specimens are very rare. Indeed, the fossil record contains very few examples ofExpand
The Taphonomy of a Centrosaurus (Ornithischia: Certopsidae) Bone Bed from the Dinosaur Park Formation (Upper Campanian), Alberta, Canada, with Comments on Cranial Ontogeny
Abstract Bone bed 43 is one of at least eight paucispecific Centrosaurus bone beds located in the Dinosaur Park Formation (Upper Campanian) in Dinosaur Provincial Park, Alberta, Canada. It long hasExpand

An articulated hindlimb of a basal iguanodont (Dinosauria, Ornithopoda) from the Early Cretaceous Las Hoyas Lagerstätte (Spain)
Abstract An isolated, fully articulated hindlimb of a basal iguanodont from the Spanish Las Hoyas Lagerstätte is described. It probably belonged to a juvenile or subadult individual. Despite someExpand

New perspectives in vertebrate paleoecology from a recent bone assemblage
TLDR
The Amboseli bone assemblage provides a modern analogue for taphonomical processes which may have affected fossil assemblages derived from paleo-land surfaces prior to fluvial transport and helps to define limits of resolution in interpreting paleoecological information from such fossil assemblelages.

TLDR
There is no evidence that either thecodontians or dinosaur demonstrated their superiority over mammal-like reptiles in massive competitive take-overs in the latest Triassic, and explanations of dinosaur success based on the competitive superiority of their thermoregulation or locomotory capability are unnecessary.
