A new Cretaceous thyreophoran from Patagonia supports a South American lineage of armoured dinosaurs

The discovery of a new armoured dinosaur from the early Late Cretaceous of Argentina, recovered phylogenetically using various datasets either as a basal thyreophoran or a stem ankylosaur, closely related to Scelidosaurus is reported.

A new early branching armored dinosaur from the Lower Jurassic of southwestern China

This new taxon, Yuxisaurus kopchicki, represents the first valid thyreophoran dinosaur to be described from the Early Jurassic of Asia and confirms the rapid geographic spread and diversification of the clade after its first appearance in the Hettangian.

Dinosaur fossil records from India and their palaeobiogeographic implications: an overview

The complex palaeogeographic history of India involving a gradual transition from Gondwana to Laurasia with an intervening phase of prolonged physical isolation, and the biotic signatures of this

A new early-branching armoured dinosaur from the Lower Jurassic of southwestern China

An early-diverging thyreophoran from the Lower Jurassic Fengjiahe Formation of Yunnan Province, China is described on the basis of an associated partial skeleton that includes skull, axial, limb and armour elements and can be diagnosed as a new taxon based on numerous cranial and postcranial autapomorphies.

The influence of juvenile dinosaurs on community structure and diversity

It is demonstrated that juvenile megatheropods likely filled the mesocarnivore niche, resulting in reduced overall taxonomic diversity, and suggests that ontogenetic niche shift was an important factor in generating dinosaur community structure and diversity.

The twelve Gondwanan stratigraphic horizons of India have yielded varied vertebrate fossils. The oldest fossil record is the Endothiodon-dominated multitaxic Kundaram fauna, which correlates the

A reevaluation of the basal turtle Indochelys spatulata from the Early–Middle Jurassic (Toarcian–Aalenian) of India, with descriptions of new material

The phylogenetic analysis affirms the placement of Indochelys spatulata as a basal mesochelydian, but cannot resolve its relationships relative to the roughly coeval Condorchelys antiqua and Kayentachelys aprix.
