    Dinosauri (Dinosauria, od starogrčkog δεινός (deinós) - "užasni" i σαῦρος (sauros) - "gušteri") bili su grupa kopnenih kralježnjaka koji su živjeli u periodu Mezozoika i koji su bili dominantne kopnene životinje od prije milijuna godina do KT izumiranja prije oko 65 milijuna godina.. U klasičnoj sistematici se dinosauri smatraju kao izumrli gmazovi, ali u kladističkom. The term was proposed as a formal zoologic name in by the British anatomist Sir Richard Owen, in reference to large fossil bones unearthed in southern England, but it is used today only in an informal sense. The animals are classified in two formal categories, the orders Saurischia and Ornithischia, within the reptile subclass Archosauria.

Three classifications of the Dinosauria have been proposed, which differ from each other in the principles on which their authors proposed to make the divisions. First in time is Professor Cope’s classification (‘Philadelphia, Acad. Nat. Sci. Proc.,’ November 13th,and December 31st, ; ‘Amer.

Saurischians ('lizard-hipped') and the ornithischians ('bird-hipped') have differences in the ways bones in the hip are put together. All carnivorous dinosaurs (the theropods) are saurischians, and so are the. Seeley described and named numerous dinosaurs from their fossils in the course of his career.

His popular book on pterosaurs, Dragons of the Air (), found that the development of birds and pterosaurs paralleled each other. His belief that they had a common origin has been proved, for both are archosaurs, just not as close as he thought.

Saurischia (/ s ɔː ˈ r ɪ s k i ə / saw-RIS-kee-ə, meaning "reptile-hipped" from the Greek sauros (σαῦρος) meaning 'lizard' and ischion (ἴσχιον) meaning 'hip joint') is one of the two basic divisions of dinosaurs (the other being Ornithischia).InHarry Seeley classified dinosaurs into two orders, based on their hip structure, though today most paleontologists classify.

The name dinosaur comes from the Greek words deinos (“terrible” or “fearfully great”) and sauros (“reptile” or “lizard”). The English anatomist Richard Owen proposed the formal term Dinosauria in to include three giant extinct animals (Megalosaurus, Iguanodon, and Hylaeosaurus) represented by large fossilized bones that had been unearthed at several locations in southern.

– Dinosaur - Dinosaur - Classification: The chief difference between the two major groups of dinosaurs is in the configuration of the pelvis. It was primarily on this distinction that the English biologist H.G. Seeley established the two dinosaurian orders and named them Saurischia (“lizard hips”) and Ornithischia (“bird hips”) in ; this differentiation is still maintained.

The clade Dinosauria is divided into the Saurischia and Ornithischia based on hip structure, including importantly that of the pubis.

An opisthopubic pelvis is a condition where the pubic bone extends back towards the tail of the animal, a trait that is also present in birds. Book: All Authors / Contributors: --Fourth note on the dinosaurs of Bernissart / L.

Seeley -- Principal. Look for the Scipionyx, which is one of the best-preserved fossils discovered to date. Also, you'll find recognizable names like the Spinosaurus, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, and the king of them all, the T. Rex. Don't let those big names distract you from peculiar dinosaurs like the Segnosaurus, Sciurumimus, and Sinocalliopteryx.

Dinosaur monophyly. Initially, dinosaurs were thought to be a monophyletic group, comprising animals with a common ancestor not shared by other reptiles. [citation needed] However, Harry Seeley disagreed with this interpretation, and split the Dinosauria into two orders, the Saurischia ("lizard-hipped") and the Ornithischia ("bird-hipped"), which were seen as members of the.

Dinosaurs (meaning "terrible lizards") are a varied group of Archosaur were the dominant land animals of the Mesozoic different genera of dinosaurs are known. Fossils of dinosaurs have been found on every continent, and there are still frequent new discoveries. Dinosaurs appeared in the Upper Triassic, about million years ago.

Dinosaurs are a diverse group of reptiles of the clade Dinosauria. They first appeared during the Triassic period, between and million years ago, although the exact origin and timing of the evolution of dinosaurs is the subject of active research. They became the dominant terrestrial vertebrates after the Triassic–Jurassic extinction event million years ago; their.Fossil Identification And Classification.

Fossil identification can be a challenging proposition. Often a small detail is all that seperates one species from another. Still overall classification system is not so difficult to understand.

Fossils of animals are classified, as are living specimens, by observing the body structures and functions.Types of dinosaurs Edit.

Dinosaurs are united by at least 21 traits in their skulls and skeletons. These common characters (called 'synapomorphies') are the reason palaeontologists are sure dinosaurs had a common origin. However, when definite dinosaur fossils appear (early in the Upper Triassic), the group had already split into two great orders, the Saurischia, and the .
