THE name Dinosauria was proposed by Prof. Richard Owen (i), in a paper on " British Fossil Reptiles," read before the ninth meeting of the British Association, at Birmingham in i839. In this order were placed the genera Megalosaurus, Hylaeosaurus, and Iguanodon. Already in I 830, however, Hermann v. Meyer (2) had placed Megalosaurus and Iguanodon in a peculiar group of the fossil saurians, with " Extremitaeten wie bei den schweren Landsdugethieren." Kaup (3) follows H. v. Meyer, and calls the… 

A new phylogeny of cerapodan dinosaurs

ABSTRACT This work attempts at providing a revised framework for ornithischian phylogeny, based on an exhaustive data compilation of already published analyses, a critical re-evaluation of

Iyuku raathi, a new iguanodontian dinosaur from the Early Cretaceous Kirkwood Formation, South Africa.

We name and describe a new iguanodontian dinosaur from the Early Creteceous Kirkwood Formation, Eastern Cape Province, South Africa. This dinosaur is one of only two ornithopod dinosaurs known from

The phylogeny of Tetanurae (Dinosauria: Theropoda)

An exhaustive examination of all basal tetanurans and all existing character data, taking advantage of recent discoveries and adding new morphological, temporal and geographic data achieved significantly improved phylogenetic resolution.

The phylogenetic nomenclature of ornithischian dinosaurs

The nomenclature of ornithischian dinosaur clades is revised; 76 preexisting ornithischerian clade names are revisited, their recent and historical use is reviewed, and their phylogenetic definitions are formally established.

Phylogeny of iguanodontian dinosaurs and the evolution of quadrupedality

Iguanodontians are a large and biogeographically widespread group of dinosaurs, known from every modern continent, with a temporal range from the Late Jurassic through the Late Cretaceous. While the

Description and rediagnosis of the crested hadrosaurid (Ornithopoda) dinosaur Parasaurolophus cyrtocristatus on the basis of new cranial remains

Unlike in previous reconstructions, the crest composition in Parasaurolophus follows what is seen in other lambeosaurines such as Corythosaurus, where the dorsal process of the premaxilla dominates the crest, with the nasal forming 80% of the ventral paired tubes, and the lateral premaxillary process acting a lateral cover between the dorsal and ventral tubes.

Vertebrate Paleontology of the Cloverly Formation (Lower Cretaceous), I: Faunal Composition, Biogeographic Relationships, and Sampling

The known Cloverly vertebrate fauna now more closely resembles those of other late Early Cretaceous formations in North America, indicating broad similarities across wide geographic areas at this time.



I. On the classification of the fossil animals commonly named Dinosauria

  • H. Seeley

    Proceedings of the Royal Society of London

Three classifications of the Dinosauria have been proposed, which differ from each other in the principles on which their authors proposed to make the divisions. First in time is Professor Cope’s

A new order of extinct Reptilia (Stegosauria) from the Jurassic of the Rocky Mountains

THE Museum of Yale College has recently received the greater portion of the skeleton of a huge reptile, which proves to ue one of the lDost remarkable animals yet discovered. It was found on the

Additional characters of the Ceratopsidae, with notice of new Cretaceous dinosaurs

THE gigantic horned Dinosaurs from the Laramie, which have already been described by the writer, in this Journal,* are still under illvestigation, and many new points in their structure have recently
