Introduction to Evolutionary Teratology, with an Application to the Forelimbs of Tyrannosauridae and Carnotaurinae (Dinosauria: Theropoda)
The contemporary independent formulation of evolutionary teratology allows a better understanding of some anatomical structures, particularly the limbs of tetrapods, characterised by different anterior micromelias, codified following an anatomical nomenclature.
Forelimbs of the theropod dinosaur Dilophosaurus wetherilli: Range of motion, influence of paleopathology and soft tissues, and description of a distal carpal bone
Experiments on American alligator cadavers show that ROM exhibits limited intraspecific variation and is greater in the fullyfleshed elbow than skeletal manipulation suggests, and this work adjusts the results of the bare-bones manipulations to account for the known influence of soft tissues.
The earliest mustelid in North America
The significance of the relatively small size of this new mustelid as it relates to predictions based on increased aridification of the palaeoclimate and the expansion of open habitats in the Oligocene is discussed.
“Keep your feet on the ground”: Simulated range of motion and hind foot posture of sauropods-a case study of the Middle Jurassic Rhoetosaurus brownei

“Keep your feet on the ground”: Simulated range of motion and hind foot posture of the Middle Jurassic sauropod Rhoetosaurus brownei and its implications for sauropod biology
It is shown that Rhoetosaurus brownei was capable of significant digital mobility at the osteological metatarsophalangeal and distal interphalangeal joints, ultimately resulting in a functionally plantigrade pes, which may have arisen during the Early to Middle Jurassic.
Ceratosaur palaeobiology: new insights on evolution and ecology of the southern rulers
The results presented here suggest that abelisaurids had different soft tissues on the skull which might have been associated with evolution of a strong cervicocephalic complex and should have allowed derived taxa to have low-displacement headbutting matches.
New data on Amynodontidae (Mammalia, Perissodactyla) from Eastern Europe: Phylogenetic and palaeobiogeographic implications around the Eocene-Oligocene transition
New phylogenetic hypotheses of Rhinocerotoidea are proposed, including the new material presented here, and show that Amynodontids may be closer to the polyphyletic family ʽHyracodontidaeʼ than to RhInocerotidae, also found in North America.
A new amynodontid from the Eocene of South China and phylogeny of Amynodontidae (Perissodactyla: Rhinocerotoidea)
Cadurcodon maomingensis sp. nov. is described based on a partial skull and associated vertebrae from the middle–upper Eocene Youganwo Formation in the Maoming Basin, Guangdong Province, China. The
Myology of the forelimb of Majungasaurus crenatissimus (Theropoda, Abelisauridae) and the morphological consequences of extreme limb reduction
The conformation of abelisaurid forelimb musculature was unique among theropods and further emphasizes the unusual morphology of the forelimbs in this clade.
A small-bodied species of Brontotheriidae from the middle Eocene Nut Beds of the Clarno Formation, John Day Basin, Oregon
Abstract We diagnose a new species of Brontotheriidae from a middle Eocene locality, the Clarno Nut Beds, from the Clarno Formation, John Day Basin, Central Oregon. Though renowned for its richness
