A new species of extinct conifer plants, Emporia royalii sp. nov. Hernandez-Castillo, Stockey, Mapes et Rothwell (Emporiaceae: Voltziales), is described from the rich fossil biota of the Late Pennsylvanian, Hamilton Quarry, Kansas. This conifer has lateral plagiotropic branches with simple and...
Analyzing taphonomic deformation of ankylosaur skulls using retrodeformation and finite element analysisDownload
Taphonomic deformation can make the interpretation of vertebrate fossil morphology difficult. The effects of taphonomic deformation are investigated in two ankylosaurid dinosaur taxa, Euoplocephalus tutus (to investigate effects on our understanding of intraspecific variation) and Minotaurasaurus...
Anemia quatsinoensis sp nov (Schizaeaceae), a permineralized fern from the lower Cretaceous of Vancouver Island.Download
Anatomically preserved schizaeaceous vegetative and fertile organs have been identified from the Apple Bay locality (Lower Cretaceous) of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Specimens are permineralized in calcareous nodules that contain numerous plants and marine invertebrates. Fertile pinnules...
Beardia vancouverensis gen. et sp. nov. (Juglandaceae): Permineralized fruits from the Eocene of British ColumbiaDownload
Large numbers of permineralized juglandaceous fruits were identified in calcareous nodules from the Eocene Appian Way locality on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. The fruits, small dorsiventrally flattened nutlets, 4.5–7.0 mm long and 5.5–9.0 3 3–5 mm in diameter, were studied using...
Paleontology is a multi-faceted subject that involves taxonomy and community analysis as two of its cornerstones. Both qualitative and quantitative approaches have been incorporated into the various methods employed in such analyses. Each paleontologist obvious has his or her own preference that...
Combining Characters of Pteridaceae and Tree Ferns: Pterisorus Radiata gen. et sp. nov., A Permineralized Lower Cretaceous Filicalean with Radial SoriDownload
An anatomically preserved leptosporangiate filicalean that combines characters of the Pteridaceae and tree ferns has been discovered in the Lower Cretaceous (Valanginian-Hauterivian boundary) Apple Bay flora on Vancouver Island, Canada. Exindusiate sori are radial, with numerous annulate...
Cretaceous birds of Alberta are poorly understood, as skeletal elements are rare and typically consist of fragmentary postcranial remains. A partial avian coracoid from the upper Campanian Dinosaur Park Formation of Alberta, Canada can be referred to the Ornithurae, and is referred to here as...
Evidence for sympodial vascular architecture in a filicalean fern rhizome: Dickwhitea allenbyensis gen. et sp. nov. (Athyriaceae).Download
A new genus and species of anatomically preserved fossil filicalean ferns Dickwhitea allenbyensis gen. et sp. nov. is described from the Middle Eocene Princeton Chert of southern British Columbia, Canada. Rhizomes have a parenchymatous pith surrounded by a ring of five amphiphloic cauline bundles...
A large number of vegetative and fertile branching systems of Thucydia mahoningensis provide data for interpreting the growth architecture and life-history pattern of a primitive Paleozoic conifer. Internal anatomy is similar to modern conifers, indicating an arborescent life-history pattern....
158 species belonging to 48 genera of Foraminifera are described and figured from the Late Jurassic portion of the Husky Formation at Martin Creek, Aklavik Range, NWT.
