- Extreme convergence in the body plans of an early suchian (Archosauria) and ornithomimid dinosaurs (Theropoda)Sterling J Nesbitt
Division of Paleontology, American Museum of Natural History, Central Park West at 79th Street, New York City, NY 10024, USA
Proc Biol Sci 273:1045-8. 2006..This suggests that these archosaurs show iterative patterns of morphological evolution. It also suggests that this group of suchians occupied the adaptive zone that was occupied by ornithomimosaurs later in the Mesozoic...
- Prey choice and cannibalistic behaviour in the theropod CoelophysisSterling J Nesbitt
Division of Paleontology, American Museum of Natural History, New York, NY 10024 5192, USA
Biol Lett 2:611-4. 2006..These findings suggest that this taxon is not cannibalistic and bring into question the commonality of this behaviour among non-avian dinosaurs...
- The theropod furculaSterling J Nesbitt
Division of Paleontology, American Museum of Natural History, New York, New York 10024, USA
J Morphol 270:856-79. 2009..Informative phylogenetic characters pertaining to the furcula occur throughout Theropoda, though care should betake to consider taphonomic effects when describing furcular morphology...
- A complete skeleton of a Late Triassic saurischian and the early evolution of dinosaursSterling J Nesbitt

- Arizonasaurus and its implications for archosaur divergenceSterling J Nesbitt
University of California Museum of Paleontology, 1101 Valley Life Science Building, Berkeley, CA 94720 4780, USA
Proc Biol Sci 270:S234-7. 2003..Middle Triassic ctenosauriscids also allow the correlation of Triassic faunas in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa. The Moenkopi Formation fauna represents a transitional fauna between Early and Late Triassic faunas...
- The Late Triassic pseudosuchian Revueltosaurus callenderi and its implications for the diversity of early ornithischian dinosaursWilliam G Parker
Division of Resource Management, Petrified Forest National Park, PO Box 2217, Petrified Forest, AZ 86028, USA
Proc Biol Sci 272:963-9. 2005..This considerably changes the understanding of early dinosaur diversity, distribution and evolution in the Late Triassic...
- A Late Triassic dinosauromorph assemblage from New Mexico and the rise of dinosaursRandall B Irmis
Museum of Paleontology and Department of Integrative Biology, University of California, Berkeley, CA 94720 4780, USA
Science 317:358-61. 2007..Thus, the transition may have extended for 15 to 20 million years and was probably diachronous at different paleolatitudes...
