Is anybody aware of studies of non-ornithodiran (crurotarsian "crocky"
thingies, whether aquatic or terrestrial) archosaurs (aetosaurs,
rauisuchians, phytosaurs, etc.) in which, for a particular species,
there was a large enough sample of specimens, with a suffiently large
size range, that it was possible for the authors to consider
ontogenetic changes (if any) in overall body proportions (arm length,
hand length, leg length, and foot length relative to overall body
size)? I have a very nice data set of this kind for American
alligators, and I may be able to get some comparable data for Ozzian
salties and freshies, but I'd like to know if there are any studies
investigating this kind of thing in the kinds of taxa thought
responsible for cheirothere-style footprints.
