  • Neosauropods are well represented in the Late Jurassic fossil record, both in Laurasia and Gondwana. Among Macronaria, Europasaurus represents one of the most basal forms of this group. In addition to its systematic importance, Europasaurus is also the first unequivocal dwarf sauropod from which adult and juvenile material is available. Despite the abundance of sauropods in the fossil record, early juvenile specimens are rare, limiting knowledge about sauropod ontogeny. Therefore, the great… CONTINUE READING
