A Nestling-Sized Skeleton of Edmontosaurus (Ornithischia, Hadrosauridae) from the Hell Creek Formation of Northeastern Montana, U.S.A., With an Analysis of Ontogenetic Limb Allometry
TLDR
Data indicate that Edmontosaurus nestlings were anatomically capable of fully quadrupedal locomotion and provide no compelling evidence to support an ontogenetic gait shift in hadrosaurids. Expand
The Behavioral Implications of a Multi-Individual Bonebed of a Small Theropod Dinosaur
TLDR
The monospecific assemblage of Aniksosaurus specimens constitutes only the second body fossil association of small, coelurosaurian theropods in South America and adds valuable information about the paleoecologies of non-avian Theropod dinosaurs, particularly in the early Late Cretaceous of Patagonia. Expand
An Ornithomimid (Dinosauria) Bonebed from the Late Cretaceous of Alberta, with Implications for the Behavior, Classification, and Stratigraphy of North American Ornithomimids
TLDR
This site provides additional evidence of gregarious behavior in ornithomimids and the first probable record of that behavior in North American forms. Expand
Feeding behaviour and bone utilization by theropod dinosaurs
TLDR
It is concluded that, like modern predators, theropods preferentially hunted and ate juvenile animals leading to the absence of small, and especially young, dinosaurs in the fossil record. Expand
Triceratops with a kink: Co-ossification of five distal caudal vertebrae from the Hell Creek Formation of North Dakota
TLDR
A series of five pathologically co-ossified caudal vertebrae from the Hell Creek Formation of North Dakota, which are part of an associated skeleton of Triceratops, show that the tail was bent, exhibiting a prominent 100° kink at approximately three quarters of its length, or it was truncated, immediately at the posterior end of the co-OSSified mass. Expand
A distinct dinosaur life history?
TLDR
Oviparity and parental care, predicted for dinosaurs by their extant phylogenetic bracket, have the least fossil support and the author cautions against overextending parsimonious interpretations to extinct taxa with the risk of obscuring novel or intermediate behaviours. Expand
Juvenile-Only Clusters and Behaviour of the Early Cretaceous Dinosaur Psittacosaurus
It has hitherto been hard to prove that any association of juvenile dinosaurs represents original behaviour rather than sedimentary accumulation, and it has been hard also to determine the ages ofExpand
TAPHONOMY OF THE STANDING ROCK HADROSAUR SITE, CORSON COUNTY, SOUTH DAKOTA
Abstract We present taphonomic analyses of the Standing Rock Hadrosaur Site (SRHS), a vast Edmontosaurus annectens bonebed in the Maastrichtian Hell Creek Formation of South Dakota, which yieldsExpand
Taphonomic and sedimentologic interpretations of the dinosaur-bearing Upper Cretaceous Strata of the Prince Creek Formation, Northern Alaska: Insights from an ancient high-latitude terrestrial ecosystem
Abstract Several dinosaurian bonebeds occur within the Campanian–Maastrichtian portion of the Prince Creek Formation of northern Alaska along a 45 km stretch of the Colville River. These beds areExpand
An ontogenetic series and population histology of the ceratopsid dinosaur Einiosaurus procurvicornis
TLDR
The nature of the bone tissue suggests that growth in Einiosaurus is still relatively rapid in even the largest specimens, indicating that a fully adult tibia has not been recovered from the studied bonebed, and this bonebed is biased toward juveniles and subadults. Expand
