... by body mass. The top graph represents the Upper Cretaceous DPF, and the bottom graph represents the Upper Jurassic MOR. The general pattern of the MOR dinosaurian assemblage shows few small taxa and many large taxa. This pattern is more regular than in the DPF, where there is a bimodal abundance...

... functional trait in paleobiology (Damuth and MacFadden 1990 ). Many empirical patterns of spatial and temporal distributions of body mass have been identified and debated in various ecological circumstances (e.g., Bergman's rule, Cope's rule). Not surprisingly, body size has been portrayed as one...

... from the original data; therefore, whether such morphospaces accurately reflect body-plan disparity or extrinsic factors, such as body size, remains uncertain. We collated nine character–taxon matrices of dinosaurs together with body-mass estimates for all taxa and tested for relationships between body...

... measurements of 69 anatomical features of the shells of 108 live tortoises indicate that the regression between straight carapace length and weight is most significant, with a maximum r 2 > 0.99. This regression is useful for tortoises that weigh between 1.8 and 339 kg. This mass estimate, coupled...

..., over a period of 5 My (from MP24 to MP27), only two occurrences (Rigal-Jouet and Saint-Martin de Casselvi, MP25) have been reported. Based on body mass and the general Hyaenodon body plan, we confidently identify H. leptorhynchus as a cursorial hypercarnivorous predator, hunting prey such as small...

Usually, three sources are cited: (1) uncertainty in determination of center of mass, (2) uncertainty in location of center of rigidity, and (3) the possible influence of torsional ground motion input. Items (1) and (2) are system-dependent and item (3) is site-dependent. An additional...

... ontogenetic variation in size and morphology. The body mass range of A . rogeri (1.4–2.5 kg) is comparable to those of notopithecids and some small hegetotheriids. The phylogenetic analysis shows A . rogeri is not directly related to any family within Notoungulata, appearing into a polytomy, as a basal taxon...
