A new phylogenetic hypothesis of turtles with implications for the timing and number of evolutionary transitions to marine lifestyles in the group
TLDR
A new phylogenetic hypothesis informed by high resolution computed tomographic data of living and fossil taxa is presented, indicating three independent evolutionary transitions to marine life in non‐pleurodiran turtles (plus an additional two‐three in pleurodires).
Turtle remains (Testudines, Chelonioidea) from the Middle Turonian of northwest Germany
TLDR
Turtle remains ascribed to the family Cheloniidae, collected from the lamarcki zone (Middle Turonian) at Wüllen (NW Germany), illustrate a progressive diversification of chelonioids during the early Late Cretaceous.

TLDR
All these publications I have to discuss first before I shall undertake to give my own views on the natural arrangement of the Testudinata, as well as those of Boulenger, Doderlein, Zittel, and Lydekker.

TLDR
The greater portion of the present communication is devoted to the consideration of Chelonia, and more especially to specimens from the Cambridge Greensand, and makes certain redeterminations as to the affinities and serial position of some of the marine Chelonians of the London Clay.
