Bone histology of fossil tetrapods : advancing methods, analysis, and interpretation by Kevin Padian( Book )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an essential primer and manual for using fossil bone histology to investigate the biology of extinct tetrapods. Twelve experts summarise advances in the field over the past three decades, reviewing fundamental basics of bone micro-anatomy and physiology. Research specimen selection, thin-section preparation, and data analysis are addressed in detail. The authors also outline methods and issues in bone growth rate calculation and chronological age determination, as well as examining broader questions of behaviour, ecology, and evolution by studying the microstructure of bone
The early Jurassic pterosaur Dorygnathus bathensis (Teodori, 1830) ; and, the early Jurassic pterosaur Campylognathoides, Strand, 1928 by Kevin Padian( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The tangled bank : an introduction to evolution by Carl Zimmer( Book )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in French and English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Tangled Bank is the first textbook about evolution intended for the general reader. Zimmer takes readers on a fascinating journey into the latest discoveries about evolution. In the Canadian Arctic, paleontologists unearth fossils documenting the move of our ancestors from sea to land. In the outback of Australia, a zoologist tracks some of the world's deadliest snakes to decipher the 100-million-year evolution of venom molecules. In Africa, geneticists are gathering DNA to probe the origin of our species. In clear, non-technical language, Zimmer explains the central concepts essential for understanding new advances in evolution, including natural selection, genetic drift, and sexual selection. He demonstrates how vital evolution is to all branches of modern biology--from the fight against deadly antibiotic-resistant bacteria to the analysis of the human genome"--
De Darwin aux dinosaures : essai sur l'idée d'évolution by Kevin Padian( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in French and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pour Darwin, l'évolution est la transformation matérielle et graduelle des êtres vivants, fondée sur une variation naturelle, sélectionnée par les forces de la nature. Pour Owen, les espèces évoluent en passant par des formes essentielles. K. Padian montre comment l'étude des dinosaures fait pencher la balance du côté d'une évolution transformiste

William Glen's project in the history of the mass-extinction debates: oral history interviews by William Glen( )

in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of oral history interviews documents the often controversial debate over possible astronomical or geophysical causes for the mass extinction of the dinosaurs. The materials provide a detailed account of a scientific debate in progress. Astronomers, paleontologists, geologists, etc. were interviewed, many at intervals, throughout the controversy. The more than 120 Interviewees include: Thomas J. Ahrens, Luis Alvarez, Walter Alvarez, Edward Anders, Frank Asaro, Bruce Bohor, William Clemens, Vincent Courtillot, Charles Drake, Stephen Jay Gould, Joseph T. Gregory, Erle G. Kauffman, Richard A. Muller, Walter Munk, David Raup, John Sepkoski, Herbert Shaw, and many others
Terminal pleistocene armadillo (Dasypus) remains from the Ozark Plateau, Missouri, USA by Blaine W Schubert( Book )

A reevaluation of the French Compsognathus of the Tithonian of southeastern France and its phylogenetic relationship with other compsognathids and coelurosaurs by Karin Peyer( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les compsognathides sont représentés dans les sédiments du Jurassique supérieur et du Crétacé inférieur d'Europe, de Chine, de Mongolie et d'Amérique du Sud. Actuellement, le genre Compsognathus inclut C. longipes et C. corallestris. Une réévaluation du Compsognathus de Canjuers (France) nous fournit, grâce à de nouvelles données crâniennes et postcrâniennes, une information cruciale pour une meilleure compréhension du genre Compsognathus et de l'estimation phylogénétique des Coelurosauria basaux et des Compsognathidae. Le Compsognathus français est quasiment complet et, comme tous les compsognathides, il a une main courte et spécialisée, des épines neurales dorsales en forme d'éventail, un pied pubien non étendu antérieurement et ne possède pas de fenêtre mandibulaire. De plus, l'architecture de son squelette ressemble fortement à celle des coelurosaures non-spécialisés. Les caractères anatomiques révélés chez le Compsognathus bavarois sont quasiment identiques à ceux du spécimen de Canjuers. Les différences peuvent être attribuées à des stades ontogénétiques différents des deux spécimens. Par conséquent, cette étude soutient que C. corallestris est un synonyme "junior" de Compsognathus longipes.A partir de propres observations et de données déjà publiées, la matrice de données pour l'analyse phylogénétique est composée de 30 taxons terminaux et 347 caractères. L'enracinement a été fait par comparaison avec des extra-groupes composés des genres Herrerasaurus et Coelophysis. L'analyse phylogénétique au niveau espèce montre que le groupe des Compsognathidae est monophylétique près de la base des Maniraptoriformes et plus dérivé que les Ornithomimosauria. Le consensus strict, résultant de deux arbres parcimonieux, a 917 pas, un indice de cohérence de 0,47 et un indice de rétention de 0,63. Dans le clade des Compsognathidae, Scipionyx se retrouve à la base suivi de Sinosauropteryx, Huaxiagnathus, Mirischia et un clade incluant les Compsognathus bavarois et français
