Ossified clavicles, either as paired elements or as a median furcula, have been recorded in all major clades of dinosaurs, including ornithischians, sauropodomorphs, and theropods (Bryant and Russell, 1993). Nearly all but the most basal theropods, Eoraptor lunensis and Herrerasaurus ischigualastensis, have an ossified furcula including coelophysids (Downs, 2000; Tykoski et al., 2002; Carrano et al., 2005), allosauroids (Chure and Madsen, 1996), tyrannosaurids (Makovicky and Currie, 1998… Expand
Bistahieversor sealeyi, gen. et sp. nov., a New Tyrannosauroid from New Mexico and the Origin of Deep Snouts in Tyrannosauroidea
Skeletal remains of Late Cretaceous (Campanian and Maastrichtian) tyrannosauroids are rare in southwestern North America (Carr and Williamson, 2000). Historically, the identity and diversity ofExpand
The theropod furcula
TLDR
Furculae occur in nearly all major clades of theropods, as shown by new theropod specimens from the Early Cretaceous of China and a close inspection of previously collected specimens. Expand
A new microraptorine theropod from the Jehol Biota and growth in early dromaeosaurids
TLDR
Comparison of histology in the new taxon and Sinornithosaurus indicates that macroscopic signs of maturity developed after the first year, but before cessation of growth, demonstrating that nonhistological indicators of adulthood may be misleading when applied to dromaeosaurids. Expand
Description and ontogenetic assessment of a new Jehol microraptorine
TLDR
It is confirmed that this microraptorine theropod was around a single year in age and still growing at death, but that the growth had slowed, which indicates that presence of a variety of feather types, including filamentous feathers, pennaceous primaries, and long rectrices, likely used for ornamentation, preceded skeletal maturity and full adult size.

New Examples of Tyrannosaurus rex from the Lance Formation of Wyoming, United States
ABSTRACT The dinosaur remains from the Upper Cretaceous Lance Formation of Wyoming, USA, have been known since 1870. Most of the fossils that are attributed to theropod dinosaurs are fragmentaryExpand
A Review of Dromaeosaurid Systematics and Paravian Phylogeny
TLDR
This study provides the most detailed and comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of paravians to date in order to explore the phylogenetic history of dromaeosaurid taxa and reviews and revises the membership of DromaeOSauridae and provides an apomorphy-based diagnosis for all valid taxa. Expand
Biomechanical comments about Triassic dinosaurs from Brazil
Triassic dinosaurs of Brazil are found in Santa Maria and Caturrita formations, Rio Grande do Sul state, Brazil. There are three species known from the Santa Maria Formation (Staurikosaurus pricei,Expand
An Articulated Pectoral Girdle and Forelimb of the Abelisaurid Theropod Majungasaurus crenatissimus from the Late Cretaceous of Madagascar
ABSTRACT Abelisaurid theropods are common members of Cretaceous Gondwanan faunas and are characterized by a bizarre, highly reduced forelimb. Unfortunately, forelimb elements are rarely preservedExpand
Unusual pectoral apparatus in a predatory dinosaur resolves avian wishbone homology
TLDR
The identification of the furcula in the birdlike theropod Halszkaraptor escuilliei is reported, which is unique among furculae in non-avian dinosaurs in bearing a visceral articular facet in the hypocleideal end firmly joined to and overlapped by the sternal plates, a topographical pattern that supports the primary homology of thefurcula with the interclavicle. Expand
An integrative approach to understanding bird origins
TLDR
Recent discoveries of spectacular dinosaur fossils overwhelmingly support the hypothesis that birds are descended from maniraptoran theropod dinosaurs, and furthermore, demonstrate that distinctive bird characteristics such as feathers, flight, endothermic physiology, unique strategies for reproduction and growth, and a novel pulmonary system originated among Mesozoic terrestrial dinosaurs.

On the presence of furculae in some non-maniraptoran theropods
TLDR
DINO 11541 is closely related to Allosaurus and the presence of a furcula suggests that Allosaurus also had afurcula and that elements previously described as Allosaurus gastralia from the Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry are actually a growth series of furculae. Expand
A FURCULA IN THE COELOPHYSID THEROPOD SYNTARSUS
TLDR
Re-examination of elements previously identified as hyoids of Syntarsus rhodesiensis show these bones are actually furculae, nearly identical in morphology to that of S. kayentakatae, suggesting that the fusion of clavicles intofurculae occurred much earlier in the coelophysid theropod dinosaurs than previously thought.

The presence of a furcula in tyrannosaurid theropods, and its phylogenetic and functional implications
TLDR
A rerun of Bryant and Russell's (1993) congruence test was conducted against a new and larger tree reflecting new ideas about theropod phylogeny, and results more consistently show that clavicles are primitively present in theropods. Expand
A therizinosauroid dinosaur with integumentary structures from China
TLDR
This new taxon from the Yixian Formation provides fresh evidence that therizinosauroids are nested within the coelurosaurian theropods, and supports the hypothesis that the filamentous integumentary structures may be homologous to the feathers of birds. Expand

A dromaeosaurid dinosaur with a filamentous integument from the Yixian Formation of China
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis indicates that, among known theropods with integumentary filaments or feathers, Dromaeosauridae is the most bird-like, and is more closely related to birds than is Troodontidae. Expand
