Re: Mosasaurs's phylogenetic analysis

Dear Alessandro,

Almost all analyses are based on the data published by Bell (1997)
with some modifications provided by Bell & Polcyn (2005), which I
would call the most comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of
Mosasauridae published to date. However, the data are a bit outdated.
Check especially Dutchak & Caldwell (2006, 2009), and Caldwell & Palci
(2007). Also, you should be familiar with the papers by Christiansen &
Bonde (2002), Dortangs et al. (2002), Bardet et al. (2005), Polcyn &
Bell (2005), Cuthbertson et al. (2007), Konishi & Caldwell (2011), as
well as Conrad (2008), and Conrad et al. (2011).
