Mandibles of rhizodontids: Anatomy, function and evolution within the tetrapod stem-group

, : Mandibles of rhizodontids: Anatomy, function and evolution within the tetrapod stem-group. Transactions of the Royal Society of Edinburgh Earth Sciences 93(3): 255-279

The Rhizodontida (Pisces: Sarcopterygii) is a clade of predatory fishes from the Upper Devonian (Aztecia; ?Givetian of Antarctica) through to the Upper Carboniferous (Strepsodus; Moscovian of northern Europe and North America). They form the most basal plesion within the tetrapod stem-lineage. The mandibles were dominated by large symphysial tusks on the dentary. Not much else is known of the mandibles in primitive rhizodontids.

A number of post-larval and juvenile chrysopetalid polychaetes were made available for study from experimental wooden panels collected in deep waters of the western Atlantic Ocean. Benthic post-larvae of 10 to 11 segments possess a large rounded p...

Although ethanol has been shown to modulate ERK1 and ERK2 (p44mapk and p42mapk) activity, it can also act as an antiproliferative agent in various mammalian...

Tween 20 at 0.2% was used in all cases. The trees were sprayed at full bloom,...
