Species Taxonomy, Phylogeny, and Biogeography of the Brontotheriidae (Mammalia: Perissodactyla)
A radical revision in the higher classification of brontotheres is presented and one new species, Wickia brevirhinus, is named and six other potential species are recognized but remain unnamed due to very poor fossil material. Expand
Torosaurus Is Not Triceratops: Ontogeny in Chasmosaurine Ceratopsids as a Case Study in Dinosaur Taxonomy
A well-defined sequence of changes exists in horned dinosaurs: development of cranial ornament occurs in juveniles, followed by fusion of the skull roof in subadults, and finally, the epoccipitals, epijugals, and rostral fuse to the skull in adults. Expand
Suture Closure as a Paradigm to Study Late Growth in Recent and Fossil Mammals: A Case Study with Giant Deer and Dwarf Deer Skulls
The numerous sutures in the mammalian skull do not obliterate simul, and growth in intracranial volume is achieved mostly by bone produc tion at the sutural margins. Expand
The Facial Integument of Centrosaurine Ceratopsids: Morphological and Histological Correlates of Novel Skin Structures
It is concluded that social selection (a broad form of intraspecific competition) is a more appropriate explanation for the diversity of centrosaurine ceratopsian ornaments in the Late Cretaceous. Expand

Ceratopsids, horned herbivorous ornithischians from the Cretaceous of North America, are unique among dinosaurs in the form and expression of their cranial ornamentation. All ceratopsid generaExpand
Late Cretaceous dinosaurs from the Denver Basin, Colorado
Late Cretaceous dinosaurs have been known from the Denver Basin, Colorado, since the mid-1860s. Most of the fossils are scrappy, although several fragmentary skeletons are known. Most recentlyExpand
Species resolution in Triceratops: cladistic and morphometric approaches
All available skulls of the ten remaining “species” of Triceratops are placed in one of two species: T. horridus and T. prorsus, invalidating eight of the original ten species. Expand
Ceratopsid tracks and associated ichnofauna from the Laramie Formation (Upper Cretaceous: Maastrichtian) of Colorado
ABSTRACT The Laramie Formation (Upper Cretaceous: Maastrichtian) contains multiple trackbearing horizons exhibiting a diverse assemblage of ceratopsid, ornithopod and theropod tracks and trackways.Expand
Megacerops kuwagatarhinus n. sp., an unusual brontothere (Mammalia, Perissodactyla) with distally forked horns
A new species of Megacerops, M. kuwagatarhinus , is described from deposits belonging to the White River Group in southeastern Montana. Megacerops kuwagatarhinus is distinguished from all otherExpand
