  author={Alejandro Otero and Zulma Gasparini},
ABSTRACT Diplodocus carnegii Hatcher, 1901, is a sauropod dinosaur that was originally recovered in the late 19th century in the Upper Jurassic of North America. The large amount of bones recovered permitted the reconstruction of the original skeleton at the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States of America. A series of casts of the specimen were made and donated by Andrew Carnegie to different countries in Europe and Latin America. The cast of D. carnegii mounted in 1912 at…

Considerations on the replacement of a type species in the case of the sauropod dinosaur Diplodocus Marsh, 1878
Historical and taxonomic issues concerning the holotype of D. longus are expanded to provide additional imagery and information on the specimen and to address comments against the replacement ofD.


Bone Wars: The Excavation and Celebrity of Andrew Carnegie's Dinosaur
Less than one hundred years ago, Diplodocus camegii - named after industrialist and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie - was the most famous dinosaur on the planet. The most complete fossil skeleton
Sauropod dinosaur research: a historical review
Abstract In the 169 years since Owen named a tooth as Cardiodon, the study of sauropod dinosaurs has gone through several distinct periods. In the early years, a sequence of descriptions of isolated
Geology Of the Carnegie Museum Dinosaur Quarry Site Of Diplodocus carnegii, Sheep Creek, Wyoming
Abstract The holotype of Diplodocus carnegii Hatcher, 1901, consists of a partial skeleton (CM 84) that was recovered, along with a second partial skeleton of the same species (CM 94), from the upper

The Sauropoda, and especially the species of Diplodocus, offer a fine illustration of the difficulties faced when determining the habits of extinct animals, their aquatic or terrestrial habitat, their modes of progression, their bearing on their limbs, their food and their ways of procuring it, their mode of attack and defense against their enemies, their manner of reproduction, etc.
Speeds of dinosaurs from the Albian-Cenomanian of Patagonia and sauropod stance and gait
Estimates of locomotory speeds of small to large-sized Patagonian dinosaurs are presented for the first time. These estimates are inferred from trackways found on fine to coarse-grained brown

Mechanics of posture and gait of some large dinosaurs
The positions of dinosaurs' centres of mass, derived from models, show that some large quadrupedal dinosaurs supported most of their weight on their hind legs and were probably capable of rearing up on their hinder legs.
Implications of limb bone scaling, curvature and eccentricity in mammals and non‐avian dinosaurs
A broad examination of hindlimb and forelimb bone scaling patterns in dinosaurs and mammals reveals several general similarities that provide insight into the general constraints acting on terrestrial locomotion, particularly in animals with parasagittally oriented limbs.
What, if anything, is a cursor? Categories versus continua for determining locomotor habit in mammals and dinosaurs
Traditional categories of locomotor habit in mammals are rejected here in favour of a multivariate continuum based on morphological variables that fulfil predictions of limb design under biomechanical theory, which can be tied to limb mechanics and applied to both extant and extinct animals alike.
