Stegosaurus. Little Simon, 2001. 10 pages. 2001 Plates of the dinosaur Stegosaurus: forced convection heat loss fins, it is suggested that the plates along the arched back and tail of Stegosaurus served an important thermoregulatory function as forced convection fins. Wind tunnel experiments on finned models, internal heat conduction calculations, and direct observations. ART. XXXIX.--Stegosaurus ungulatus Marsh, recently mounted at the Peabody Museum of Yale University, tHERE has recently been mounted at Yale University an almost perfect example of the armored dinosaur Stegosaurus, in many respects the most grotesque reptile the world ever saw. The interest lies not only in this, but in the fact that, while well known in literature owing. Othniel Charles Marsh and the myth of the eight-spiked Stegosaurus, archival records are used to recreate Marsh's thinking in making the first skeletal reconstruction of Stegosaurus. This reconstruction shows a large, elephantine animal with a paired row of plates along its back, a single row on its tail, and four pairs of spikes. I.⠔Restoration of Stegosaurus, abstract In the American Journal of Science in 1877, the writer described a remarkable extinct reptile from Colorado, under the name Stegosaurus armatus, and later a much more perfect specimen of another species, Stegosaurus ungulatus, from essentially the same. New evidence of shared dinosaur across Upper Jurassic Proto-North Atlantic: Stegosaurus from Portugal, more than one century after its original description by Marsh in 1877, we report in this paper the first uncontroversial evidence of a member of the genus Stegosaurus out of North America. The specimen consists of a partial skeleton from the Upper Jurassic of Portugal. Growth and function of Stegosaurus plates: evidence from bone histology, histological examination of Stegosaurus dorsal bony plates shows a thin wall of incompletely remodeled bone surrounding a large cancellous region containing some large pipes delineated by thin bony walls. Growth proceeded mainly from the basal region. Internal vascularity of the dermal plates of Stegosaurus (Ornithischia, Thyreophora, x-ray computed tomography and petrographic thin sectioning were used to study internal features of the plates of the thyreophoran dinosaur Stegosaurus and the osteoderms of Alligator. Infrared thermographic imaging of basking caimans was used to examine possible. A newly mounted skeleton of the armored dinosaur, Stegosaurus stenops, in the United States National Museum, the Stegosaurs were bj'^ reason of their large size, and ornate dermal structure the more striking and characteristic of the large reptilia that inhabited the northernhemisphere in Morrison time. It should be said, however, that the family Stegosauridae is not con-fined. A new dinosaur, Stegosaurus marshi, from the Lower Cretaceous of South Dakota, the name Stec/osaurus marshi is proposed for a new species of Stcg-osaur represented by a number of plates, spines, and portions of thenuchal and gular armature, as well as by some vertebra and bones of the limbs, obtained by Mr, NH Darton in South Dakota from. I.⠔Notes on British Dinosaurs. Part IV: Stegosaurus priscus, sp. nov, limb-bones. Since the humerus is known in Hylœsaurus (?), Omosaurus, and Stegosaurus, it is quite easy to compare the humerus of our new species with that of the other genera mentioned. Whether the shaft is hollow as in Omosaurus or solid. Different growth patterns between the skeleton and osteoderms of Stegosaurus (Ornithischia: Thyreophora, stegosaurus has unique plate-and spike-shaped osteoderms. Previous studies have focused on the function of the osteoderms; however, ontogenetic development and maturity of these osteoderms with respect to Stegosaurus body growth are little known. In this study. Species of plated dinosaur Stegosaurus (Morrison Formation, Late Jurassic) of western USA: new type species designation needed, stegosaurus armatus M arsh 1877, based on a partial tail and a very large dermal plate from the Morrison Formation (Late Jurassic) of Morrison, Wyoming, USA, is a nomen dubium. Valid Morrison stegosaur species (with possible autapomorphies, dermal armor. II.⠔Notes on British Dinosaurs.1 Part IV: Stegosaurus priscus, sp. nov, since the Omosaurus of the Kimeridge Clay may still be regarded as the only well-known European representative of the Stegosauridæ, it seemed advisable, after discussing in previous papers the Ornithopodous Hypsilophodon and the Acanthopholidid Polacanthus. Juveniles of the stegosaurian dinosaur Stegosaurus from the Upper Jurassic of North America, two partial skeletons of juvenile individuals of Stegosaurus with estimated body lengths of about 1.5 m (5 ft) and 2.6 m (8.5 ft) are described from the Morrison Formation (Upper Jurassic) of Utah and Wyoming. These juveniles differ from adults in the absence of fusion. A model for the bite mechanics in the herbivorous dinosaur Stegosaurus (Ornithischia, Stegosauridae, although the herbivorous dinosaur Stegosaurus (Ornithischia, Stegosauridae) is a well-described Late Jurassic taxon, little is known about the feeding habits and biomechanics of its homodont dentition. The presence of a rhamphotheca has been suggested, but it is still. Ontogenetic histology of Stegosaurus plates and spikes, the dinosaur Stegosaurus is characterized by osteoderms of alternating plates and terminal paired spikes. Previous studies have described the histological features and possible functions of these osteoderms. However, ontogenetic changes are poorly documented. ART. XIV.--The Armor of Stegosaurus, tHE American genus Stegosaurus, first made known to science by Professor Marsh, includes the most bizarre and grotesque of armored dinosaurs; a group apparently quite apart from the glyptodon-like Ankylosauridae with heavy mail developed over the entire. Long and Girdle Bone Histology of Stegosaurus: Implications for Growth and Life History, long bone histology has often been used to study growth, life history, and physiology of several dinosaurs but only little is known about life and growth parameters of Stegosaurus. This work provides the first extensive study of the long bone histology of Stegosaurus. Body mass estimates of an exceptionally complete Stegosaurus (Ornithischia: Thyreophora): comparing volumetric and linear bivariate mass estimation, body mass is a key biological variable, but difficult to assess from fossils. Various techniques exist for estimating body mass from skeletal parameters, but few studies have compared outputs from different methods. Here, we apply several mass estimation methods. Armor of Stegosaurus stenops, and the taphonomic history of a new specimen from Garden Park, Colorado, the data obtained from this specimen was incorporated into the remounting of another Stegosaurus stenops skeleton found previously about 300 m away. The angle of the articular face of the last sacral and the wedge shaped first caudal indicate that the tail. by BF Nopcsa
