Feathers are the most complex and diversified integuments in vertebrates. Their complexity are provided by the different forms and functions, and they occur both in nonavian and avian-dinosaurs. Despite their rareness, feathers are found throughout the world, and the Santana Formation (comprised by Crato and Romualdo formations) of the Araripe Basin is responsible for the majority of these records in Brazil. Most occurrences is consisted by isolated feathers, where downy-feathers is the…

Feathered dinosaurs reconsidered: New insights from baraminology and ethnotaxonomy
Birds could not have evolved from land animal ancestors because Genesis clearly states that birds and land animals were created on separate days. As a result, young-earth creationists have
Abdominale Hysterektomie
TLDR
This article deals “close minded” with the abdominal (AHE) vs. laparoscopic hysterectomy in form of a classic pro-con discussion.

Ecology, Systematics and Biogeographical Relationships of Dinosaurs, Including a New Theropod, from the Santana Formation (?Albian, Early Cretaceous) of Brazil
Although rare, dinosaurs are well preserved in calcareous nodules of the Santana Formation (Early Cretaceous, ?Albian) of the Araripe Basin, in northeastern Brazil. So far, including only a
New evidence of feathers in the Crato Formation supporting a reappraisal on the presence of Aves.
TLDR
The preservation of delicate structures such as feathers is very rare in the paleontological record, due to the fragility of their components, and the presence of an asymmetrical feather without barbules and hooks hints at the previous existence of a flightless animal within this deposit.
On a theropod scapula (Upper Cretaceous) from the Marília Formation, Bauru Group, Brazil
The record of theropod dinosaurs in Brazil is very scarce. One of the most promising lithostratigraphic units for those reptiles is the Bauru Group. The dinosaur remains found in this unit are mainly
A Jurassic ornithischian dinosaur from Siberia with both feathers and scales
TLDR
A seemingly feathery nontheropod dinosaur from the Jurassic of Siberia shows that feathers were not unique to the ancestors of birds and may even have been quite widespread, and feathers may thus have been present in the earliest dinosaurs.
REDESCRIPTION OF DASTILBE CRANDALLI (CHANIDAE, EUTELEOSTEI) FROM THE EARLY CRETACEOUS CRATO FORMATION OF NORTH-EASTERN BRAZIL
TLDR
More than 400 specimens from the Crato Formation and Riacho Doce are examined to establish the morphology and emend the diagnosis of Dastilbe crandalli, a gonorynchiform fish placed within recent Chanidae.
A new crocodylomorph specimen from the Araripe Basin (Crato Member, Santana Formation), northeastern Brazil
The fossil fauna of the Santana Formation (Early Cretaceous) comprises many distinct taxa, but crocodylomorphs are poorly understood. Here we describe a new specimen (MPSC-R1137) that consists of a
FEATHERS OF THE INGERSOLL SHALE, EUTAW FORMATION (UPPER CRETACEOUS), EASTERN ALABAMA: THE LARGEST COLLECTION OF FEATHERS FROM NORTH AMERICAN MESOZOIC ROCKS
Abstract The Ingersoll shale (Santonian) is a small mudstone lens in eastern Alabama, interpreted as an abandoned tidal-channel fill that accumulated rapidly within the lower reaches of a bayhead
Fossilized melanosomes and the colour of Cretaceous dinosaurs and birds
TLDR
It is reported that melanosomes (colour-bearing organelles) are not only preserved in the pennaceous feathers of early birds, but also in an identical manner in integumentary filaments of non-avian dinosaurs, thus refuting recent claims that the filaments are partially decayed dermal collagen fibres.
