Brief review of dinosaur studies and perspectives in Brazil. (1/401)

Dinosaur research is developing at very high rates around the world resulting in several new discoveries that are improving our understanding of this terrestrial reptilian clade. Except for the last couple years, the studies of Brazilian dinosaurs have not followed this expansive trend, despite the high potential of several dinosaur localities. So far there are only eight described taxa, four in the last year, representing theropod, sauropod, and one possible prosauropod taxa. Except for footprints, there are no records of ornithischian dinosaurs in the country what is at least partially explainable by the lack of continuous vertebrate fossil collecting program in the country. More funding is necessary to improve the research activities in this field.  (+info)

Dinosaurs, dragons, and dwarfs: the evolution of maximal body size. (2/401)

Among local faunas, the maximum body size and taxonomic affiliation of the top terrestrial vertebrate vary greatly. Does this variation reflect how food requirements differ between trophic levels (herbivores vs. carnivores) and with taxonomic affiliation (mammals and birds vs. reptiles)? We gathered data on the body size and food requirements of the top terrestrial herbivores and carnivores, over the past 65,000 years, from oceanic islands and continents. The body mass of the top species was found to increase with increasing land area, with a slope similar to that of the relation between body mass and home range area, suggesting that maximum body size is determined by the number of home ranges that can fit into a given land area. For a given land area, the body size of the top species decreased in the sequence: ectothermic herbivore > endothermic herbivore > ectothermic carnivore > endothermic carnivore. When we converted body mass to food requirements, the food consumption of a top herbivore was about 8 times that of a top carnivore, in accord with the factor expected from the trophic pyramid. Although top ectotherms were heavier than top endotherms at a given trophic level, lower metabolic rates per gram of body mass in ectotherms resulted in endotherms and ectotherms having the same food consumption. These patterns explain the size of the largest-ever extinct mammal, but the size of the largest dinosaurs exceeds that predicted from land areas and remains unexplained.  (+info)

Influence of rotational inertia on turning performance of theropod dinosaurs: clues from humans with increased rotational inertia. (3/401)

The turning agility of theropod dinosaurs may have been severely limited by the large rotational inertia of their horizontal trunks and tails. Bodies with mass distributed far from the axis of rotation have much greater rotational inertia than bodies with the same mass distributed close to the axis of rotation. In this study, we increased the rotational inertia about the vertical axis of human subjects 9.2-fold, to match our estimate for theropods the size of humans, and measured the ability of the subjects to turn. To determine the effect of the increased rotational inertia on maximum turning capability, five subjects jumped vertically while attempting to rotate as far as possible about their vertical axis. This test resulted in a decrease in the average angle turned to 20 % of the control value. We also tested the ability of nine subjects to run as rapidly as possible through a tight slalom course of six 90 degrees turns. When the subjects ran with the 9.2-fold greater rotational inertia, the average velocity through the course decreased to 77% of the control velocity. When the subjects ran the same course but were constrained as to where they placed their feet, the average velocity through the course decreased to 65 % of the control velocity. These results are consistent with the hypothesis that rotational inertia may have limited the turning performance of theropods. They also indicate that the effect of rotational inertia on turning performance is dependent on the type of turning behavior. Characters such as retroverted pubes, reduced tail length, decreased body size, pneumatic vertebrae and the absence of teeth reduced rotational inertia in derived theropods and probably, therefore, improved their turning agility. To reduce rotational inertia, theropods may have run with an arched back and tail, an S-curved neck and forelimbs held backwards against the body.  (+info)

An analysis of dinosaurian biogeography: evidence for the existence of vicariance and dispersal patterns caused by geological events. (4/401)

As the supercontinent Pangaea fragmented during the Mesozoic era, dinosaur faunas were divided into isolated populations living on separate continents. It has been predicted, therefore, that dinosaur distributions should display a branching ('vicariance') pattern that corresponds with the sequence and timing of continental break-up. Several recent studies, however, minimize the importance of plate tectonics and instead suggest that dispersal and regional extinction were the main controls on dinosaur biogeography. Here, in order to test the vicariance hypothesis, we apply a cladistic biogeographical method to a large dataset on dinosaur relationships and distributions. We also introduce a methodological refinement termed 'time-slicing', which is shown to be a key step in the detection of ancient biogeographical patterns. These analyses reveal biogeographical patterns that closely correlate with palaeogeography. The results provide the first statistically robust evidence that, from Middle Jurassic to mid-Cretaceous times, tectonic events had a major role in determining where and when particular dinosaur groups flourished. The fact that evolutionary trees for extinct organisms preserve such distribution patterns opens up a new and fruitful direction for palaeobiogeographical research.  (+info)

Ascent of dinosaurs linked to an iridium anomaly at the Triassic-Jurassic boundary. (5/401)

Analysis of tetrapod footprints and skeletal material from more than 70 localities in eastern North America shows that large theropod dinosaurs appeared less than 10,000 years after the Triassic-Jurassic boundary and less than 30,000 years after the last Triassic taxa, synchronous with a terrestrial mass extinction. This extraordinary turnover is associated with an iridium anomaly (up to 285 parts per trillion, with an average maximum of 141 parts per trillion) and a fern spore spike, suggesting that a bolide impact was the cause. Eastern North American dinosaurian diversity reached a stable maximum less than 100,000 years after the boundary, marking the establishment of dinosaur-dominated communities that prevailed for the next 135 million years.  (+info)

A genus-level supertree of the Dinosauria. (6/401)

One of the ultimate aims of systematics is the reconstruction of the tree of life. This is a huge undertaking that is inhibited by the existence of a computational limit to the inclusiveness of phylogenetic analyses. Supertree methods have been developed to overcome, or at least to go around this problem by combining smaller, partially overlapping cladograms. Here, we present a very inclusive generic-level supertree of Dinosauria (covering a total of 277 genera), which is remarkably well resolved and provides some clarity in many contentious areas of dinosaur systematics.  (+info)

A theropod tooth from the Late Triassic of southern Africa. (7/401)

An isolated, large recurved and finely serrated tooth found associated with the prosauropod Euskelosaurus fron the Late Triassic part of the Elliot Formation is described here. It is compared to the Triassic thecodonts and carnivorous dinosaurs and its possible affinity is discussed. The tooth possibly belongs to a basal theropod and shows some features similar to the allosauroids. This tooth is of significance, as dinosaur remains except for some footprints and trackways, are poorly known in the Late Triassic horizons of southern Africa.  (+info)

Recreating a functional ancestral archosaur visual pigment. (8/401)

The ancestors of the archosaurs, a major branch of the diapsid reptiles, originated more than 240 MYA near the dawn of the Triassic Period. We used maximum likelihood phylogenetic ancestral reconstruction methods and explored different models of evolution for inferring the amino acid sequence of a putative ancestral archosaur visual pigment. Three different types of maximum likelihood models were used: nucleotide-based, amino acid-based, and codon-based models. Where possible, within each type of model, likelihood ratio tests were used to determine which model best fit the data. Ancestral reconstructions of the ancestral archosaur node using the best-fitting models of each type were found to be in agreement, except for three amino acid residues at which one reconstruction differed from the other two. To determine if these ancestral pigments would be functionally active, the corresponding genes were chemically synthesized and then expressed in a mammalian cell line in tissue culture. The expressed artificial genes were all found to bind to 11-cis-retinal to yield stable photoactive pigments with lambda(max) values of about 508 nm, which is slightly redshifted relative to that of extant vertebrate pigments. The ancestral archosaur pigments also activated the retinal G protein transducin, as measured in a fluorescence assay. Our results show that ancestral genes from ancient organisms can be reconstructed de novo and tested for function using a combination of phylogenetic and biochemical methods.  (+info)

Background Allosauroidea has a contentious taxonomic and systematic history. Within this group of theropod dinosaurs, considerable debate has surrounded the phylogenetic position of the large-bodied allosauroid Acrocanthosaurus atokensis from the Lower Cretaceous Antlers Formation of North America. Several prior analyses recover Acrocanthosaurus atokensis as sister taxon to the smaller-bodied Allosaurus fragilis known from North America and Europe, and others nest Acrocanthosaurus atokensis within Carcharodontosauridae, a large-bodied group of allosauroids that attained a cosmopolitan distribution during the Early Cretaceous. Methodology/Principal Findings Re-evaluation of a well-preserved skull of Acrocanthosaurus atokensis (NCSM 14345) provides new information regarding the palatal complex and inner surfaces of the skull and mandible. Previously inaccessible internal views and articular surfaces of nearly every element of the skull are described. Twenty-four new morphological characters are
Dinosaurs are a diverse group of reptiles of the clade Dinosauria. They first appeared during the Triassic period, between 243 and 231 million years ago, although the exact origin and timing of the evolution of dinosaurs is the subject of active research. They became the dominant terrestrial vertebrates after the Triassic-Jurassic extinction event 201 million years ago; their dominance continued through the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. The fossil record indicates that birds are modern feathered dinosaurs, having evolved from earlier theropods during the late Jurassic Period. As such, birds were the only dinosaur lineage to survive the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction event 66 million years ago. Dinosaurs can therefore be divided into avian dinosaurs, or birds; and non-avian dinosaurs, which are all dinosaurs other than birds. This article deals primarily with non-avian dinosaurs. Dinosaurs are a varied group of animals from taxonomic, morphological and ecological standpoints. Birds, at over ...

Background Basal iguanodontian dinosaurs were extremely successful animals, found in great abundance and diversity almost worldwide during the Early Cretaceous. In contrast to Europe and Asia, the North American record of Early Cretaceous basal iguanodonts has until recently been limited largely to skulls and skeletons of Tenontosaurus tilletti. Methodology/Principal Findings Herein we describe two new basal iguanodonts from the Yellow Cat Member of the Cedar Mountain Formation of eastern Utah, each known from a partial skull and skeleton. Iguanacolossus fortis gen. et sp. nov. and Hippodraco scutodens gen. et sp. nov. are each diagnosed by a single autapomorphy and a unique combination of characters. Conclusions/Significance Iguanacolossus and Hippodraco add greatly to our knowledge of North American basal iguanodonts and prompt a new comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of basal iguanodont relationships. This analysis indicates that North American Early Cretaceous basal iguanodonts are more basal
Dinosaurs (meaning terrible lizards)[1] are a varied group of Archosaur reptiles. They were the dominant land animals of the Mesozoic era. Over 500 different genera of dinosaurs are known.[2] Fossils of dinosaurs have been found on every continent, and there are still frequent new discoveries. Dinosaurs appeared in the Upper Triassic, about 230 million years ago.[3] The earliest date of a dinosaur fossil is that of Eoraptor and Herrerasaurus from the Argentine, and Saturnalia from Brazil, 237 to 228 mya.[4] By the early Jurassic they were the top land vertebrates, and dominated most environments on land. They continued until the sudden K/T extinction event 66 million years ago.[5] From the fossil record, we know that birds are living feathered dinosaurs.[6] They evolved from the earliest theropods during the Jurassic.[7] They were the only line of dinosaurs to survive to the present day.[8] Dinosaurs had adaptations which helped make them successful. The first known dinosaurs were small ...
Dinosaurs of the Late Triassic Dinosaurs are a rare but important portion of the fossil fauna of Petrified Forest National Park. Park sediments preserve fossils of the Late Triassic dawn of the dinosaurs when these animals first appeared worldwide. In contrast to the large sauropods, horned dinosaurs, and the famed Tyrannosaurus rex of the later Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, the Triassic dinosaurs of Arizona were mainly small, bipedal carnivores no bigger than a human in size. Unlike their descendents which filled every terrestrial ecological niche, the dinosaurs of the Triassic shared the landscape with other types of predatory reptiles, most notably the crocodile-like phytosaurs and rauisuchians. In direct competition with these other voracious predators, the small dinosaurs evolved characteristics that would allow them to compete for prey. These evolutionary developments included characters of the pelvis and ankle which allowed the animals to keep their legs straight under their body for a ...
Qijiang, China - Researchers from the University of Alberta have concluded that the fossil remains accidentally dug up in 2006 by local farmers seeking a prime fishing spot are that of a new dinosaur that measured up to 15 meters (~50 ft.) in length. The dinosaur belongs to the mamenchisaurids which were noted for having very elongated necks. The type of long-neck dinosaurs most people think of are called sauropods. These land dwellers were popularized in the Don Bluth animated films The Land Before Time. However, their necks comprised 33% of their body length. Mamenchisaurids have necks significantly longer than that.. The newly discovered dinosaur has been given the nick name dragon dinosaur. It stems from the fact that when originally discovered, locals could not see any legs on it. This gave it the appearance of being a mythical dragon.. The dinosaur is also called Qijianglong to attribute its name to the city where it was first discovered. By comparison with other long-neck dinosaurs, ...

Jason Poole, who oversees the lab and has participated in dinosaur digs around the world, says the fossils were unearthed in Wyoming in 2011 by a team from the New Jersey State Museum in Trenton. Scientists already know the fossils belong to a 25-foot-long, duck-billed, plant-eating dinosaur that lived 67 to 70 million years ago. Its of the hadrosaur family, the same family as the famous Hadrosaurus foulkii, the worlds first nearly complete dinosaur, which the Academy displayed in 1868 as the worlds first mounted dinosaur.. But scientists wont know what species of hadrosaur the mystery dinosaur is until they can fully see and examine the fossils. Even though they have found only a small portion of the dinosaur, scientists are confident they will be able to identify it, especially since they have parts of the skull, which often is not recovered.. From neck to tail, all hadrosaurids look alike, Poole says. But we have a good bit of the skull, which makes it a lot easier to identify the ...
Witmer said traditional views of the nostril placement are probably rooted in a historical belief that the huge, long-necked sauropod dinosaurs were amphibious. In that case, nasal passages positioned further back on the head would have worked like a snorkel. Evidence uncovered in the 1970s suggested that sauropods were not aquatic, but landlubbers. Yet for some reason, the early depictions of sauropods with nostrils further back on the head didnt change, and that position was also picked up in renderings of other dinosaurs. Up-Front Results Witmer undertook the study because he is interested in the overall physiology of dinosaurs. He was curious about why the fleshy nostrils of dinosaurs were shown where they are, but he couldnt find an explanation. So he set out to get a more accurate idea of just where a dinosaurs nose was probably positioned. He did X-ray examinations of living birds, crocodiles, and lizards, which are thought to be surviving relatives of dinosaurs.. He painted the fleshy ...
The oldest dinosaurs were bipedal and fast creatures, which had many competitors in the ecosystems of Pangea. In the Middle Triassic we already find species able to be classified into Saurischia (Herrerasaurus, Eoraptor) or Ornithischia (Pisanosaurus). The findings started at the end of the 20th century in the argentinian province called Ischigualasto, where Herrerasaurus ischigualastensis and Eoraptor lunensis was found. While Herrerasauridae was thought to be a sister taxon to Neotheropoda, Eoraptor became famous for its position as the most basal theropod dinosaur. The apomorphies linking the skeleton of these dinosaurs to theropods are numerous, for example wide intercentres of vertebrae, elongated humerus and manus, flat fourth metacarpal or the craniomandibular and intramandibular joint at the same level as the teeth rows. Later more discoveries of basal dinosaurs happened, which led to the creation of new hypotheses about the very early phylogeny of this group. Saturnalia tupiniquim was ...
Palaeontologists identify what is likely to be the oldest known dinosaur specimen, patching a 10-15-million-year hole in dinosaurs evolutionary history. It walked on two legs, measured 2-3m in length with a large tail and weighed between 20 and 60kg. The find suggests that many millions of years passed between dinosaurs first members and their dominance on land. It fills a gap between what we previously knew to be the oldest dinosaurs and their other closest relatives, report co-author Paul Barrett, of the Natural History Museum in London, told BBC News. The find shores up the idea that dinosaurs evolved on the southern parts of the supercontinent Pangaea. There was this big gap in the fossil record where dinosaurs shouldve been present and this fossil neatly fills that gap. The early evolution of dinosaurs is difficult to unpick, as a rich variety of reptiles were proliferating at the time - and some may even have independently evolved characteristics that are associated with

Picture Credit: Everything Dinosaur. Not only does this discovery make it a record breaking year for Utah, in terms of new dinosaurs but it adds greatly to our understanding of the Troodontidae. Troodonts are known from the Upper Cretaceous of Asia and from the Upper Jurassic and Upper Cretaceous of North America, however, this is the first evidence of Troodonts living in what was to become North America in the Early Cretaceous.. Commenting on the new dinosaur, Scott Foss, a regional palaeontologist for the US Bureau of Land Management stated:. Its skull is six times larger than other dinosaurs. One find a year is unusual but eight is outstanding.. He went on to add that approximately one percent of all known dinosaurs described to date have had their fossils found in Utah. We at Everything Dinosaur, think this claim is a little exaggerated, but the importance of the western United States as a location for Mesozoic vertebrate fossils should not be underestimated.. Seven of the new types of ...
Whatever the ancestor of birds was, it must have had five fingers, not the three-fingered hand of theropod dinosaurs, Feduccia said. Scientists agree that dinosaurs developed hands with digits one, two and three -- which are the same as the thumb, index and middle fingers of humans -- because digits four and five remain as vestiges or tiny bumps on early dinosaur skeletons. Apparently many dinosaurs developed very specialized, almost unique hands for grasping and raking. Our studies of ostrich embryos, however, showed conclusively that in birds, only digits two, three and four, which correspond to the human index, middle and ring fingers, develop, and we have pictures to prove it, said Feduccia, professor and former chair of biology at UNC. This creates a new problem for those who insist that dinosaurs were ancestors of modern birds. How can a bird hand, for example, with digits two, three and four evolve from a dinosaur hand that has only digits one, two and three? That would be almost ...
Because feathers are often associated with birds, feathered dinosaurs are often touted regarding the relationship between birds and dinosaurs. However, the multiple skeletal features also shared by the two groups represent the more important link for paleontologists. Furthermore, it is increasingly clear that the relationship between birds and dinosaurs, and the evolution of flight, are more complex topics than previously realized. For example, while it was once believed that birds evolved from dinosaurs in one linear progression, some scientists, most notably Gregory S. Paul, conclude that dinosaurs such as the dromaeosaurs may have evolved from birds, losing the power of flight while keeping their feathers in a manner similar to the modern ostrich and other ratites.. Comparison of bird and dinosaur skeletons, as well as cladistic analysis, strengthens the case for the link, particularly for a branch of theropods called maniraptors. Skeletal similarities include the neck, pubis, wrist ...

Pterosaurs and dinosaurs are closely related, meaning they share a number of features, but are still distinct groups, or clades as we call them in biology. They both belong to a group called the Archosauria, which includes crocodilians, dinosaurs (including birds, as they evolved from dinosaurs and therefore are dinosaurs by definition), and pterosaurs. Archosaurs share a number of characteristics including an antorbital fenestra (a hole in the skull in front of the eye) and teeth set in sockets. However, early in archosaurian evolution there was a split between crocodilians and their close relatives (the crurotarsans or pseudosuchians) and birds and their closest relatives, including dinosaurs and pterosaurs (known as the avemetatarsalians). Avemetatarsalia is a mouthful, but its pretty easy to break down. Basically this group is united by a bird-like ankle, among other features. Within this group is another group called the Ornithodira, which means bird-neck, again uniting the group with ...
FIG. 5. - Restoration Of Allosaurus.. Materials for the Restoration of D inosaurs. - Carnivorous dinosaur Allosaurus o f the U mal closely related to the Me alosaurus (Allosaurus) pper Jurassic period of North America, an anit type of England. The skeleton (fig. 4) was found nearly complete in the beds of the Morrison formation, Upper Jurassic of central Wyoming, U.S.A. Near it was discovered the posterior portion of the skeleton of a giant herbivorous dinosaur (Brontosaurus Marsh). It was observed that ten of the caudal vertebrae of the latter skeleton bore tooth marks and grooves corresponding exactly with the sharp pointed teeth in the jaw of the carnivorous dinosaur. This proved that the great herbivorous dinosaur had been preyed upon by its smaller carnivorous contemporary. Teeth of the carnivorous dinosaur scattered among the bones of the herbivorous dinosaur completed the line of circumstantial evidence. Upon this testimony the restoration (fig. 5) of the Megalosaur has been drawn by ...

In the new episode of Jurassic Park the dinosaur theme park on Isla Nuba is in operation already for a long time, but it has financial problems. The scientists want to produce more thrill by developing a genetically modified pimped predatory dinosaur to attract more paying visitors.. But what has actually made dinosaurs so successful that they could dominate the earth for 200 million of years? And why did mammals have to wait 200 millions of years for their turn? Mammals were already present before dinosaurs had inhabited the earth, namely in that time of the so-called perm period. They evolved - like the dinosaurs did as well - from reptiles and were biologically seen quite similar to the todays platypus - so they had fur, warm-blooded body temperature and probably they even laid eggs. Suddenly all of the mammals apart from a few small forms died out and made way for the dinosaurs.. What happened? The atmosphere got contaminated due to eruptions of huge volcanos, the level of oxygen dropped ...
Though undeniably speculative when it was published in 1998, The New Dinosaurs was greatly influenced by the state of dinosaur science at the time. By the late 1980s the cultural shift in paleontology celebrated as the Dinosaur Renaissance was in full swing-images of slow, stupid, swamp-bound and drab dinosaurs were rapidly being replaced by visions of active, agile and vividly colored animals that were far more bird-like than previously imagined. There was even a growing body of evidence that birds were the direct descendants of dinosaurs, and Dixon extrapolated from these paleontological trends to create a collection of colorful, behaviorally complex dinosaurs unlike any seen before. ...
A dinosaur couple that appears to have died together after wooing each other has been identified in remains unearthed at the Gobi Desert in Mongolia.. The dino couple, named Romeo and Juliet since they are reminiscent of Shakespeares famous doomed lovers, were entombed together for over 75 million years, according to a new study in the journal Scientific Reports.. Key to the research was figuring out the sex of the dinosaurs.. Determining a dinosaurs gender is really hard, lead author Scott Persons said in a press release. Because soft anatomy seldom fossilizes, a dinosaur fossil usually provides no direct evidence of whether it was a male or a female.. Persons, a paleontologist at the University of Alberta, and his team compared the remains of the bird-like dinosaurs, which were oviraptors (avian-resembling two-legged predators), with the anatomy of modern birds.. The researchers found evidence that the dinosaurs sported long feathers on the ends of their tails. The feathers were not ...
Tyrannosaurus ( or , meaning tyrant lizard) from the Greek words τυράννος (tyrannos, meaning tyrant) and σαύρος (sauros, meaning lizard), is a genus of theropod dinosaur. The species Tyrannosaurus rex (rex meaning king in Latin), commonly abbreviated to T. rex, is a fixture in popular culture. It lived throughout what is now western North America, with a much wider range than other tyrannosaurids. Fossils are found in a variety of rock formations dating to the last two million years of the Cretaceous Period, 67 to 65.5 million years ago. It was among the last non-avian dinosaurs to exist prior to the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction event.. Like other tyrannosaurids, Tyrannosaurus was a biped carnivore with a massive skull balanced by a long, heavy tail. Relative to the large and powerful hindlimbs, Tyrannosaurus forelimbs were small, though unusually powerful for their size, and bore two clawed digits. Although other theropods rivaled or exceeded Tyrannosaurus rex in ...
are a creationist, in which case they (because clearly birds are not dinosaurs) died a few thousand years ago in the global flood because Noah didnt have room for them in the ark. An eminent Christian, Jack Chick, propounds an alternative theory:[2] some dinosaurs were in Noahs ark, and hence were saved. Unfortunately, in the flood many plants were killed. As a consequence, the atmosphere after the flood was poor in oxygen. Big animals, such as dinosaurs, need lots of oxygen! Luckily, some dinosaurs survived even this - ever heard of dragons? This does not make any sense considering that the average dinosaur was about the size of a van. Why would larger modern animals, such as elephants, survive but not the smaller dinosaurs? Simple: that hypothesis is wrong. Another popular idea is that Satan put all the fossils in the ground to trick humans into believing evolution, or perhaps God put them there to test humanitys faith. A similar idea was that the fossils were faked by scientists. These ...

sauropods with dermal spines were depicted in the Ica stone collection. Modern man was unaware that some (many?) sauropod dinosaurs possessed dermal spines, even though scientists had been studying the dinosaur fossils around the world for more than 150 years. This characteristic of sauropods was not learned from the fossil record until 1992. The ancient Peruvians had it right long before 1992: are we to believe they carefully examined, excavated, and reconstructed fossilized sauropod bones and skin-intricate scientific recreations that history simply does not record the ancients performing? Is it not more reasonable to conclude that man once lived with the animals that they illustrated? Modern-day paleontologists have the luxury of researching dinosaur data from all over the world and as far back as the 1820s. Our present knowledge and illustrations of dinosaurs come from their composite research. The ancients had no such comparable science, yet they still depicted dinosaurs accurately. The ...

Finally we now turn our attention to the featured paper. The Jesper Milàn and colleagues report on a new, better preserved Navahopus trackway (skipping over the theropod tracks entirely). Suprisingly (to me in any case) it more or less confirms Bairds earlier interpretation of Navahopus. In particular the manus prints are much clearer and lo and behold there is a large medially directed thumb-claw. Sauropodomorphs are the only known four-toed tetrapods from that epoch with hyperenlarged thumb claws so I think we have to accept that Navahopus was indeed the spoor of a sauropodomorph. So what is Otozoum, and were basal sauropodomorph facultative quadrupeds after all? I think a plausible explanation is that we are dealing with two distinct kinds of basal sauropodomorph. Otozoum tracks were likely left by plateosaurian-grade basal sauropodomorphs (like Plateosaurus and Massospondylus), which probably were obligate bipeds (at least as adults). Navahopus, on the other hand was probably left by a ...
New science directly challenges the millions-of-years dogma scattered throughout the blockbuster movie Jurassic World. The spring 2015 edition of the Creation Research Society Quarterly (CRSQ) is a special issue that focuses on the investigation of dinosaur proteins inside fossil bones. The last article in the issue presents never-before-seen carbon dates for 14 different fossils, including dinosaurs. Because radiocarbon decays relatively quickly, fossils that are even 100,000 years old should have virtually no radiocarbon left in them.1 But they do.. Jurassic World characters repeatedly mention million years ago in the context of their dinosaurs. In the movie, fictional scientists essentially resurrect and genetically redesign dinosaurs, pterosaurs, and even a giant mosasaur-creatures supposedly extinct for 65-75 million years.. The CRSQ study authors tested seven dinosaur bones, including a Triceratops from Montana, hadrosaurids, a cartilaginous paddlefish, a bony fish, and fresh-looking ...

According to a news release from the university, the team determined the bones were from the neck, back and tail of a new dinosaur previously unknown to science.. Therapods comprise a group of carnivores that typically walked on two legs instead of four, such as the Tyrannosaurus rex, the release stated.. The new discovery, which scientists have named Vectaerovenator inopinatus, most likely measured about 13 feet in length and lived during the Cretaceous period, about 115 million years ago, according to the release.. The name was selected because it references the large air sacs found in some of the bones, which are commonly seen in theropods and proved key to helping the researchers identify the species, CNN reported.. We were struck by just how hollow this animal was. Its riddled with air spaces. Parts of its skeleton must have been rather delicate, Chris Barker, a PhD student at the university who led the study, said in the release.. The record of theropod dinosaurs from the ...

Now that I Know Dino is about a year and a half old, Garret and I decided it was time we saw some more dinosaur sites for ourselves. So we embarked on a 4,000 mi (~6,400 km), 67 hour road trip from California to Alberta to Montana and back.. Along the way we met some amazing dinosaur enthusiasts, including museum employees and curators, paleontologists, and people who love dinosaurs as much as we do.. We picked up some new dinosaur books at the impressive Powells in Portland, Oregon. And then we headed north to Wembley, Alberta, to see the Philip J. Currie Museum.. The Currie Museum only opened last September, but has already attracted more than 100,000 visitors and won numerous awards. Everything smells new, and whats great about this museum is their emphasis on technology and giving people new ways of learning about dinosaurs, even from a distance.. We got to speak with George Jacob, the CEO and president of the museum, and Jewels Goff, the Outreach and Education Programs coordinator.. When ...
Allosaurus is one of the best known theropod dinosaurs from the Jurassic and a crucial taxon in phylogenetic analyses. On the basis of an in-depth, firsthand study of the bulk of Allosaurus specimens housed in North American institutions, we describe here a new theropod dinosaur from the Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation of Western North America, Allosaurus jimmadseni sp. nov., based upon a remarkably complete articulated skeleton and skull and a second specimen with an articulated skull and associated skeleton. The present study also assigns several other specimens to this new species, Allosaurus jimmadseni, which is characterized by a number of autapomorphies present on the dermal skull roof and additional characters present in the postcrania. In particular, whereas the ventral margin of the jugal of Allosaurus fragilis has pronounced sigmoidal convexity, the ventral margin is virtually straight in Allosaurus jimmadseni. The paired nasals of Allosaurus jimmadseni possess bilateral, blade-like crests
The study, funded in large part by the Bureau of Land Management and the National Science Foundation, was led by Mark Loewen, research associate at the Natural History Museum of Utah, and adjunct assistant professor in the department of geology and geophysics at the University of Utah. Additional collaborative authors include Randall Irmis, Natural History Museum of Utah and department of geology and geophysics, University of Utah; Joseph Sertich, Denver Museum of Nature & Science; Philip Currie, University of Alberta; and Scott Sampson, Denver Museum of Nature & Science. The skeleton was discovered by BLM employee Scott Richardson, and excavated by a joint NHMU-GSENM team.. Lythronax lived on Laramidia, along the western shores of the great seaway that separated North America; this landmass hosted a vast array of unique dinosaur species and served as the crucible of evolution for iconic dinosaur groups such as the horned and duck billed dinosaurs. This study also indicates that tyrannosaurid ...

Wyomings State Dinosaur Geological Age: Late Cretaceous, 65 to 70 million years ago Geographic Range: Wyoming, Colorado, Montana, South Dakota, North Dakota, Alberta, Saskatchewan. Adult weight: 5 to 6 tons. Length: About 30 ft.. Habitat: Lowland floodplains. Diet: plants. Triceratops was one of the most common dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous Period. Its most prominent features are on its head: two long brow horns, a nasal horn, and a bony frill. Its frill had no holes, but it did have a row of conical bones around the edge. Fossil evidence supports the idea that this head armor was used in display and ritualized combat within its on species. It may have also served to deter predators.. Triceratops had powerful jaws and teeth that were elongated blades, suitable for shearing tough vegetation.. Triceratops is the official state dinosaur of Wyoming. Wyoming is the only state that has both a state dinosaur and a state fossil (Knightia, a fish).. ...
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The fossil skeletons of two dinosaurs intertwined in what looks like a final death match have been donated to a North Carolina museum. The nonprofit organization Friends of the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences said in a statement Tuesday that it acquired the fossilized animals with private funds. The skeletons will be gifted to the Raleigh museums vertebrate paleontology collection. The Tyrannosaurus rex and Triceratops horridus known as the dueling dinosaurs were buried together 67 million years ago.. Their fossils were discovered on a Montana hillside and remain entombed within the sediment where they were found. The nonprofit said the distinct preservation will give museum paleontologists an unprecedented opportunity for research and education. The skeletons are worth millions of dollars and were the subject of a court battle over who owned them after their discovery in 2006. In June, a U.S. appeals court ruled the fossils belong to the owners of the lands ...

MIT scientists used precisely dated rocks from the Deccan Traps to reveal evidence that a major volcanic eruption began just before the asteroid impact that wiped out the dinosaurs, possibly playing a role in the extinction.. Sixty-six million years ago, an asteroid more than five miles wide smashed into the Earth at 70,000 miles per hour, instantly vaporizing upon impact. The strike obliterated most terrestrial life, including the dinosaurs, in a geological instant: Heavy dust blocked out the sun, setting off a cataclysmic chain of events from the bottom of the food chain to the top, killing off more than three-quarters of Earths species - or so the popular theory goes.. But now scientists at MIT and elsewhere have found evidence that a major volcanic eruption began just before the impact, possibly also playing a role in the extinction.. The team precisely dated rocks from the Deccan Traps - a region of west-central India that preserves remnants of one of the largest volcanic eruptions on ...
Chris Srnka requested information about Transylvanian dinosaurs. In the summer of 1997, while I was editor of The Dinosaur Report for The Dinosaur Society, we published an update by David Weishampel on his recent important work on Transylvanian dinosaurs. The Society is now inactive and even I dont have hardcopies of the printed version to give to Dr. Weishampel, but I do have the original text which I reproduce below for you all since it is not available at the Society website. There were no photos of specimens in this article. David also did an interesting article on Nopsca (sp) which I will dig up if people show interest. For further information, one might contact Dr. Weishampel at Johns Hopkins. Note: this is David Weishampels original draft. It includes several foreign-language characters that do not translate into plain text, so you may see an occasional garbage character. --Thom Holmes Dinosaur author at large -------- 1995-1996 Progress Report The Dinosaurs of Transylvania Research ...
Why Become Extinct? Authors with varying competence have suggested that dinosaurs disappeared because the climate deteriorated (became suddenly or slowly too hot or cold or dry or wet), or that the diet did (with too much food or not enough of such substances as fern oil; from poisons in water or plants or ingested minerals; by bankruptcy of calcium or other necessary elements). Other writers have put the blame on disease, parasites, wars, anatomical or metabolic disorders (slipped vertebral discs, malfunction or imbalance of hormone and endocrine systems, dwindling brain and consequent stupidity, heat sterilization, effects of being warm-blooded in the Mesozoic world), racial old age, evolutionary drift into senescent overspecialization, changes in the pressure or composition of the atmosphere, poison gases, volcanic dust, excessive oxygen from plants, meteorites, comets, gene pool drainage by little mammalian egg-eaters, overkill capacity by predators, fluctuation of gravitational constants, ...
Dinosaurs is an installation of colossal volume, presenting a dinosaur halved and spaced into two vitrines (10 × 2 × 3m each) respectively. Modelled primarily in the language of sculpture, the enormous animal was stuffed with real viscera by the artist, whose design allows his audience to walk through this work. The existence of this piece, in terms of its configuration, refers precisely to the internationally acclaimed contemporary artwork The Shark (as well as Mother and Child Divided) by Damien Hirst. If the British artist refreshes the definition and value of contemporary art by displaying animal specimens preserved in formaldehyde, then it is not unfair to say that the pastiche by XU Zhen, who follows his visual presentation faithfully, is likely to serve as a retort towards the pieces that go down in art history. Back in 2007, XU exhibited this work in a show entitled NONO. I am quite satisfied with the work, for it is so abundantly boring. said the artist commenting on his own ...

Sauropod bone histology has provided a great deal of insight into the life history of these enormous animals. However, because of high growth rates, annual growth rings are not common in sauropod long bones, so directly measuring growth rates and determining sexual maturity require alternative measures. Histological ontogenetic stages (HOS) have been established to describe the changes in bone histology through development for basal Macronaria and Diplodocoidea, and subsequently for Titanosauria. Despite this, the current HOS model is not able to discriminate bone tissues in late ontogeny, when sauropods had reached asymptotic size and continued to live into senescence but their long bones became extensively remodeled by secondary osteons and all primary bone was destroyed. Here we establish remodeling stages (RS) to characterize the Haversian bone development through ontogeny in eight sauropod taxa (Apatosaurinae, Giraffatitan brancai, Camarasaurus spp., Dicraeosaurus spp., Ampelosaurus atacis, ...

GOLDEN - The 68 million-year-old dinosaur tracks at the golf course in Golden are set for a hit of notoriety today.. A dedication ceremony will take place at 1:30 p.m. at Triceratops Trail on the west side of Fossil Trace Golf Course, 3050 Illinois St., to acknowledge the fossil site as a National Natural Landmark.. Triceratops Trail at the golf course was added to the existing Morrison Fossil Area National Natural Landmark at Dinosaur Ridge in 2011. The new name for the extended site will be the Morrison-Golden Fossil Areas.. Friends of Dinosaur Ridge president Joe Tempel said, We held off on the dedication to get some interpretive signs up about the designation and do some maintenance on the trail.. The mission of the Friends group has been to educate the public and preserve the dinosaur tracks in Morrison and Golden.. Retired geologist and Golden resident William Caneer has long been an advocate of the tracks preservation. He was active last year in urging Jefferson County to approve a ...

In this traveling exhibition, visitors will explore new discoveries and technologies that have revolutionized our understanding of the biology of sauropods, the largest dinosaurs to have walked the Earth.
Sp far, there hasnt been any direct fossil evidence of feathers in the species that followed Similicaudiptery, but there is a lot of other, strong evidence, that they possessed a feathered tail.. Persons reasons that because the later oviraptor had the same tail structure as the feathered Similicaudipteryx, the tails of later oviraptors still served the same purpose, waving feathered tail fans.. This hypothesis is strongly supported by the structure of the bones and muscles of their tail.. Individual vertebrae at the base of an oviraptors tail were short and numerous, indicating great flexibility. Based on dissections of modern reptile and bird tails, Persons reconstruction of the dinosaurs tail muscles revealed oviraptors had what it took to really shake their tail feathers.. Large muscles extended far down the tail and had a sufficient number of broad connection points to the vertebrae to propel oviraptors tail feathers vigorously from side to side and up and down.. The image that ...
Sutures and synchondroses, the fibrous and cartilaginous articulations found in the skulls of vertebrates, have been studied for many biological applications at the morphological scale. However, little is known about these articulations at the microscopic scale in non-mammalian vertebrates, including extant archosaurs (birds and crocodilians). The major goals of this paper were to: (i) document the microstructure of some sutures and synchondroses through ontogeny in archosaurs; (ii) compare these microstructures with previously published sutural histology (i.e. that of mammals); and (iii) document how these articulations with different morphological degrees of closure (open or obliterated) appear histologically. This was performed with histological analyses of skulls of emus, American alligators, a fossil crocodilian and ornithischian dinosaurs (hadrosaurids, pachycephalosaurids and ceratopsids). Emus and mammals possess a sutural periosteum until sutural fusion, but it disappears rapidly during ...
Well I find it likely that meat curtains were ancestral to Dinosauria because we have beaked Ornithiscia, then Saurischia is a little weird. We have meat curtains basal to Theropoda but it would seem at first it wasnt to Sauropodomorpha. But by looking at what the known fleshy integument of the lips are found in Sauropods I find it likely they were also going along the path of beaks. But instead of evolving true beaks they evolved the next best thing; a protobeak. Look at Camarasaurus and Bonitasaurua. They dont have beaks but instead of highly keratinized lips that act just like a beak. Why they would grow a protobeak instead of a full fledged beak beats me, but regardless this still looks like the same case that was going on with all other Dinosaurs that became herbivores. And it just so happens that these are the only two sauropods with known facial integument AND they arent that closely related so its likely they have a common ancestor with such a proto beak. Maybe there wasnt a ...

This skull and the knowledge locked away within it is helping us further understand the intimate details surrounding the life history of these remarkable animals, said Cary Woodruff, a Ph.D. student working with the Royal Ontario Museum and lead researcher on the paper. How a baby Diplodocus that hatched from an egg no bigger than a cantaloupe grows up to be 100 feet long within 30 years is astonishing in and of itself - and this skull, like a puzzle piece, is helping us piece together how this rapid growth was even possible.. The skull, measuring just 24 centimeters long, is the smallest of its kind ever discovered and was unearthed in south-central Montana by CMC paleontologist Glenn Storrs, Ph.D. and prepared in the laboratory at the Museum of the Rockies. Diplodocus skulls are remarkably small given the massive size of the dinosaur, but the discovery of a skull less than half the length of known adult cranial remains leads paleontologists to believe it is from a juvenile animal. Upon ...
