Studies of basal archosaur phylogeny since 1975 were reviewed to assess directly opposing views on the (dis) agreement reached as a result of adopting cladistic methodology. The transition to modern numerical cladistic analyses has been long, including two principal stages: with listing of derived characters as node support eventually replaced by explicit data and methodology presentation. All four existing explicit numerical studies are reanalysed, and a semi-strict reduced cladistic consensus… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Intraorganismal homology, character construction, and the phylogeny of aetosaurian archosaurs (reptilia, diapsida).
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses revealed that inferred relationships within the Aetosauria are in general poorly resolved and weakly supported by the available data and are sensitive to alternative approaches to character construction. Expand
The Early Evolution of Archosaurs: Relationships and the Origin of Major Clades
TLDR
A time-calibrated phylogeny of Archosauriformes indicates that the origin and initial diversification of archosauria occurred during the Early Triassic following the Permian-Triassic extinction. Expand
PROGRESS AND FUTURE DIRECTIONS IN ARCHOSAUR PHYLOGENETICS
TLDR
The basic structure of archosaurian phylogeny is understood to include two primary crown-group lineages—one leading to living crocodiles and including a broad diversity of Triassic animals and another leading to dinosaurs. Expand
The higher-level phylogeny of Archosauria (Tetrapoda: Diapsida)
TLDR
This analysis produces a well-resolved phylogeny, which recovers mostly traditional relationships within Avemetatarsalia, places Phytosauria as a basal crurotarsan clade, finds a close relationship between Aetosaurian and Crocodylomorpha, and recovers a monophyletic Rauisuchia comprised of two major subclades. Expand
Early dinosaurs: A phylogenetic study
TLDR
A new cladistic analysis of the early dinosaur radiation was performed to assess the relationships among the three major clades (Ornithischia, Sauropodomorpha and Theropoda) and to define the phylogenetic position of the basal members of the group. Expand
Anatomy, phylogeny and palaeobiology of early archosaurs and their kin
TLDR
A state-of-the-art examination of early archosaur groups and their close relatives including historical, anatomical, biogeographical, evolutionary and palaeobiological data is presented. Expand
The monophyly of Euparkeriidae (Reptilia: Archosauriformes) and the origins of Archosauria: a revision of Dorosuchus neoetus from the Mid‐Triassic of Russia
TLDR
Euparkeria capensis is resolved as the sister taxon to Archosauria in many cladistic phylogenies and provides a key outgroup which may approximate the ancestral archo- saur morphology, and Dorosuchus neoetus is included for the first time in a numerical cladistic analysis and is recovered as the sole sisterTaxa.

Naish accomplishments and role in the world of fossil reptile research
Alan Jack Charig was Curator of Fossil Amphibians, Reptiles and Birds at the British Museum (Natural History) from 1961 to 1987. We here review his academic accomplishments and the impact of his workExpand
The status and phylogenetic relationships of “Zanclodon”arenaceus: the earliest known phytosaur?
TLDR
A cladistic analysis identified “Z.”arenaceus as the sister-taxon of Phytosauria, but because of the limited data available and numerous homoplasies that occur among mandibular characters of archosaurs a closer relationship with other archosaur taxa is a reasonable alternative. Expand
A critical re‐evaluation of the Late Triassic dinosaur taxa of North America
Synopsis The North American Triassic dinosaur record has been repeatedly cited as one of the most complete early dinosaur assemblages. The discovery of Silesaurus from Poland and the recognition thatExpand

AMNIOTE PHYLOGENY AND THE IMPORTANCE OF FOSSILS
TLDR
The importance of the critical fossils seems to reside in their relative primitive‐ness, and the simplest explanation for their more conservative nature is that they have had less time to evolve. Expand
Basal Archosaurs: Phylogenetic Relationships and Functional Implications
TLDR
Erect posture has been identified as the key adaptation (possibly associated with locomotor stamina) that resulted in the archosaurian radiation. Expand
Phylogeny and classification of thecodontian reptiles
TLDR
An understanding of thecodontian tarsi is necessary if the authors are to understand the evolution of the later archosaurs, and this work attempts to trace some of the the codontian lineages on the basis of tarsal anatomy. Expand

THE LIMITS OF AMINO ACID SEQUENCE DATA IN ANGIOSPERM PHYLOGENETIC RECONSTRUCTION
  • K. Bremer

  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1988
TLDR
Cladistic analysis of amino acid sequence data, including evaluation of all equally or almost equally parsimonious cladograms, shows that much homoplasy (parallelisms and reversals) is present and that few or no well supported monophyletic groups of families can be demonstrated. Expand
Phylogeny of the Crocodylotarsi, with reference to archosaurian and crurotarsan monophyly
TLDR
The phylogeny of the Crocodylotarsi was re-examined based on study of most relevant fossil material of the early non–crocodyliform members of the clade. Expand
Classification and phylogeny of the diapsid reptiles
TLDR
A cladistic analysis of skull and skeletal characters of all described Permo-Triassic diapsid reptiles suggests some significant rearrangements to commonly held views of the Diapsida. Expand
The segnosaurian dinosaurs: relics of the prosauropod–ornithischian transition?
TLDR
A cladistic comparison of the segnosaurs with thecodonts and early dinosaurs of the Triassic suggests that, despite their late appearance, the seGNosaurs are phylogenetic intermediates between herbivorous prosauropods and early ornithischians. Expand
SKEWNESS AND PERMUTATION
Abstract— The skewness criterion of phylogenetic structure in data is too sensitive to character state frequencies, is not sensitive enough to number of characters (degree of corroboration) andExpand
