A Revised Systematic Ichnotaxonomy and Review of the Vertebrate Footprint Ichnofamily Chirotheriidae from the British Triassic
- Geography, Environmental Science
The natural cast of a probable tail impression, associated with Chirotheriidae footprints from the British Triassic is figured for the first time, as is a rare detailed impression of skin and the tarsal region of an Isochirotherium lomasi pes cast.
Aquatic adaptations in desmostylians
- Environmental Science
This analysis documents the gradual evolutionary transition of des mostylians to an aquatic mode of life and shows that the desmostylian swam better using its hind‐limbs at least than the hippopotamus.
