      Any dinosaur book aimed at a popular audience has a few core responsibilities. It needs to impart the latest scientific consensus on its subjects, give a digestible explanation of how various branches of dinosauria evolved over time, explain their broader evolutionary context, and explain convincingly that the birds are The Dinosaurs Who Lived. Thecodontia (meaning "socket-teeth"), now considered an obsolete taxonomic grouping, was formerly used to describe a diverse "order" of early archosaurian reptiles that first appeared in the latest Permian period and flourished until the end of the Triassic period. All of them were built somewhat like crocodiles.

The Proterosuchia and the early evolution of the archosaurs; an essay about the origin of a major taxon. Early archosaur evolution is characterized by high rates of homoplasy, long ghost lineages, and high rates of character evolution.

These data imply that much of the early history of Archosauria has not been recovered from the fossil record. TI - The Proterosuchia and the early evolution of the archosaurs; an essay about the origin of a major taxon T2 - Bulletin of the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard College.

VL - Cited by: In the last 20 years, our understanding of the early evolution of the group has improved substantially with the discovery of new fossils and species of early archosaurs and their closest relatives, a better understanding of the relationships of these animals, and new insights into their palaeobiology.

Archosaurs are a group of diapsid amniotes and are broadly classified as living representatives of this group consist of birds and group also includes all extinct dinosaurs, pterosaurs, and extinct relatives of crocodilians. Archosauria, the archosaur clade, is a crown group that includes the most recent common ancestor of living birds and crocodilians and all of Clade: Eucrocopoda.

Proterosuchia refers to one of the suborders of thecodontia; specifically the most primitive and ancestral were primitive, vaguely crocodile-like, archosaurs that mostly lived during the Early Triassic period.

The name Proterosuchia was coined by Robert Broom in In later classifications, several families are included, such as the Proterosuchidae, Erythrosuchidae, and Class: Reptilia. Early archosaur evolution is characterized by high rates of homoplasy, long ghost lineages, and high rates of character evolution.

All early dinosaurs and many later ones were bipedal. The archosaurs or their immediate ancestors survived the catastrophic Permian–Triassic extinction event.

Biol. 14, () ArticleCited by: Archosaurs have a nearly million year record that originated shortly after the Permian-Triassic extinction event and is continued today by two extant clades, the crocodylians and the avians.

The two extant lineages exemplify two bauplan extremes among a diverse and complex evolutionary history, but little is known about the common ancestor. Archosaur, (subclass Archosauria), any of various reptiles, including all crocodiles and birds and all descendants of their most recent common ancestor.

Archosaurs (“ruling reptiles”) are members of a subclass that also includes the dinosaurs, the pterosaurs (flying reptiles), and several groups of extinct forms, mostly from the Triassic Period ( million to million years ago). The ancestors of dinosaurs developed a stronger ankle.

This kind of ankle occurs in pterosaurs, dinosaurs, and birds. Lagosuchus, Lagerpeton, and Pseudolagosuchus were small, bipedal (they walked on two legs) archosaurs with advanced ankles and other features that suggest they were closely related to.

The first archosauromorphs (relatives of the true archosaurs) appear in the fossil record in the Early Triassic, about million years ago, just after the great end-Permian extinction.

The locomotor abilities of early archosaurs are uncertain, but early dinosaurs probably were adept runners. Tetanuran dinosaurs evolved a moderately large body size, which was secondarily reduced in coelurosaurs, including birds, so running ability probably changed repeatedly on the bird by: In the last 20 years, our understanding of the early evolution of the group has improved substantially with the discovery of new fossils and species of early archosaurs and their closest relatives, a better understanding of the relationships of these animals, and new insights into their by: Early dinosaurs were the first habitual striding bipeds, a trait retained by living birds.

Yet there is much more to archosaur locomotor evolution than these two transitions. I review our understanding of the pattern of locomotor evolution from the first archosaurs to Crocodylia and Neornithes, outlining where transitions of locomotor function.

All of them were built somewhat like crocodiles, but with shorter skulls, more erect pose and usually somewhat lighter.

Background. The origin and diversification of archosaurs during the Triassic (– Ma) was a critical event in the evolutionary history of tetrapods [].This radiation took place in the aftermath of the Permo-Triassic mass extinction, the largest extinction in the history of life (e.g.

[]), and gave rise to the major clades – dinosaurs, pterosaurs and crocodylomorphs – that Cited by:   Several attempts have been made to outline the early evolution and radiation of the archosaurs through a study of the morphology and function.

Of course, before there could be archosaurs (much less full-blown dinosaurs), nature had to evolve the first true the start of the Carboniferous period--the swampy, wet, vegetation-choked era during which the first peat bogs formed—the most common land creatures were prehistoric amphibians, themselves descended (by way of the earliest tetrapods) from the proverbial prehistoric.

The origin and early radiation of archosaurs and closely related taxa (Archosauriformes) during the Triassic was a critical event in the evolutionary history of tetrapods.

Students of archosaur evolution are blessed with a wonderful fossil record for many groups of archosaurs, including some very bizarre extinct taxa. The first archosauromorphs (relatives of the true archosaurs) appear in the fossil record in the Early Triassic; about million years ago, just after the great end-Permian extinction.

Archosaurs had a large opening in the front of each eye. As the many groups of archosaurs evolved, this antorbital fenestra ("window in front of the eye") sometimes closed (in crocodilians and the later plant-eating dinosaurs) or merged with the nostril (in pterosaurs).

To provide context for the diversifications of archosaurs, the group that includes crocodilians, dinosaurs and birds, we generated draft genomes of three crocodilians, Alligator mississippiensis (the American alligator), Crocodylus porosus (the saltwater crocodile), and Gavialis gangeticus (the Indian gharial).

The living relatives of Triassic crocodiles include Nile crocodiles (Crocodylus niloticus) and the living relatives of dinosaurs are birds including the Tinamous (Eudromia elegans); both of which we are looking at in our study.
