A compendium of vivipary in the Cactaceae: new reports, data, and research prospects

This review examines the historical research progress and areas of vivipary currently investigated in the Cactaceae. Vivipary, a rare attribute, has evolved multiple times in numerous plant lineages;

The Lower Cretaceous in East-Central Utah—The Cedar Mountain Formation and its Bounding Strata

Although only recognized as a discrete stratigraphic unit since 1944, the Cedar Mountain Formation represents tens of millions of years of geological and biological history on the central Colorado

Redefining the Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation in Garden Park National Natural Landmark and vicinity, eastern Colorado: Geology of the Intermountain West

The Garden Park National Natural Landmark (GPNNL) is north of Cañon City, Colorado, and encompasses all of the major historical dinosaur quarries of the Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation in this


An analysis of pterosaurian biogeography: implications for the evolutionary history and fossil record quality of the first flying vertebrates

A novel model is proposed to explain pterosaurian distributions: pterosaurs underwent a series of ‘sweep-stakes’ dispersal events (across oceanic barriers in most cases), resulting in the founding of sympatric clusters of taxa.

New Data on the Clevosaurus (Sphenodontia: Clevosauridae) from the Upper Triassic of Southern Brazil

The need of a deep phylogenetic review of Clevosauridae is indicated, in order to discover synapomorphic characters among the diversity of these Triassic/Jurassic sphenodontians.

New vertebral remains of the stegosaurian dinosaur Dacentrurus from Riodeva (Teruel, Spain)

The discovery of new stegosaurian remains from a site in Riodeva (Teruel, Spain) included in the Villar del Arzobispo Formation evidences the strong presence of these plated dinosaurs in the

Neovenatorid theropods are apex predators in the Late Cretaceous of North America.

A giant new species of allosauroid--Siats meekerorum gen. et sp. nov.--is described, providing the first evidence for the cosmopolitan clade Neovenatoridae in North America and demonstrating that the clade endured there into the Late Cretaceous.

Chemostratigraphy, paleontology and mineral potential of the Gammon Ferruginous Member of the Cretaceous Pierre Shale in southwestern Manitoba (parts of NTS 62F, G, H, J, K, N, O, 63C, F)

The Cretaceous Gammon Ferruginous Member, with a maximum thickness of 56 m, is present in thousands of oil wells in southwestern Manitoba. The Member has also been sampled in outcrop along the
