Eye-Bulging Behavior in Lizards of the Genus Sceloporus: A Role in Chemical Communication?
Eye-bulging behavior in relation to scent-marking and chemosensory behavior in three species of iguanian lizards, Sceloporus jarrovii, S. tristichus, and S. virgatus, was positively correlated to the frequency of chin wipes in males, but not females.
Vascular Patterns in Iguanas and Other Squamates: Blood Vessels and Sites of Thermal Exchange
Squamates offer important anatomical and phylogenetic evidence for the inference of the blood vessels of dinosaurs and other extinct archosaurs in that they shed light on the basal diapsid condition and inform and constrain the range of physiological thermoregulatory mechanisms that may have been found in Dinosauria.
Braincase Redescription of Dysalotosaurus lettowvorbecki (Dinosauria, Ornithopoda) Based On Computed Tomography
The middle and inner ears of Dysalotosaurus bear a mosaic of primitive and derived features, pointing to a more complex evolutionary history of these structures, including the braincase and inner ear.
The braincase of Bissektipelta archibaldi — new insights into endocranial osteology, vasculature, and paleoneurobiology of ankylosaurian dinosaurs
An extremely developed sense of smell, a keen sense of hearing at lower frequencies, and the presence of physiological mechanisms for precise temperature control of neurosensory tissues at least in derived ankylosaurids are inferred.
The eye-bulging in Liolaemus lizards (Weigmann 1843)
Se discute the posibilidad of that las hipotesis de termorregulacion y/o de limpieza de ojos puedan explicar the ocurrencia of this despliegue en estas two especies.
Braincase evolution in suchian archosaurs (Reptilia: Diapsida): evidence from the rauisuchian Batrachotomus kupferzellensis
The most parsimonious hypothesis is consistent with the currently orthodox view of archosaurian phylogeny, except in that aetosaurians are more closely related to crocodylomorphs than is any rauisuchian.
Paratympanic sinuses in juvenile Alligator.
Crocodylia has an extensive epithelial pneumatic space in the middle ear, paratympanic sinus system. Although fossil and extant crocodylian paratympanic sinus systems have been studied recently using
The narial musculature of Alligator mississippiensis: Can a muscle be its own antagonist?
The morphology of this system was investigated using a combination of gross, light microscopic, and micro‐CT analyses, while the mechanics of narial regulation were examined using a combinations of Hall Effect sensors, narial manometry, and electromyography.
Intracranial pressure in the American Alligator (Alligator mississippiensis): reptilian meninges and orthostatic gradients
Investigation of the bulk flow of cerebrospinal fluid, and the resulting changes in intracranial pressure, in a common reptilian species found no significant relationship was found between intrac Cranial pressure and either heart rate or blood flow.


Reclassification of the Reptilia

  • 1904
The history of the classification of the Reptilia resembles that of the classifications of other forms of vertebrates in its gradual approximation to the truth in terms of superficial resemblances and analogous adaptations.

The present work indicates an enormous amount of careful and accurate work, which, however, is of such a special kind that it cannot easily be summarized in a short review.
