The Theropod Database is back online for good
Hi everyone. Graduating from the University of Washington cancelled my
online publishing service, so my website was on hiatus for a while. But now
it's back, with the perminant URL http://home.myuw.net/eoraptor/Home.html .
So change your links.
The updates are quite extensive. Information from Nesbitt et al. (2007) has
been incorporated, which mostly affected coelophysoids, kicking
"Cinizasaurus" out of Theropoda, and adding "Comanchesaurus" and
"Revueltoraptor". Lophostropheus was added, while Coelophysis and
Zupaysaurus received updates. In Ceratosauria, "Bayosaurus" and
Vitakridrinda were added, while abelisaurid phylogeny was changed and
Majungasaurus information expanded thanks to the new monograph on that
taxon. The Coelophysoidea and Ceratosauria sections have also been revised
with the new locality-specific format. Microvenator? "chagyabi" was added as
well, since I added M. celer. In Coelurosauria, the newly described
Sinocalliopteryx and Aniksosaurus were added. Therizinosauroidea was updated
and importantly, Oviraptorosauria is now complete! The latter includes
extensive information on several taxa. Urbacodon and several unnamed
troodontids were added. In fact, a lot of Middle Asian maniraptoriform info
was added to the site. Shanag was added to Microraptoria. Some basic
information was added on confuciusornithids, but their entries are in
progress. Also important is that Enantiornithes is complete! At least as far
as named taxa go. This included a complete reworking of "Gobipipus", which
had to be moved from Aves.
So go check it out, especially
Only basal coelurosaurs, ornithomimosaurs, alvarezsaurids, dromaeosaurids,
troodontids, non-ornithothoracine birds, and ornithuromorphs to go!
