New materials of Masiakasaurus knopfleri Sampson, Carrano, and Forster, 2001, and implications for the morphology of the Noasauridae (Theropoda:Ceratosauria) by Matthew T Carrano( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Osteology of the noasaurid theropod Masiakasaurus knopfleri Sampson et al., 2001, is now two-thirds complete. We describe Masiakasaurus Knopfleri in detail on the basis of examination of new specimens and emphasis on previously unknown elements. The skull is anteroposteriorly long but low in height, unlike the foreshortened abelisaurid condition. Premaxillary teeth are procumbent, like those of the dentary. Frontal bones are flat and unornamented, but the lacrimal and postorbital exhibit surface texturing. The braincase resembles that of abelisaurids but is more highly pneumatized. The neck is curved anteriorly but horizontal posteriorly, and it transitions to the trunk without significant proportional changes. Centrum pneumaticity appears confined to the neck and anterior trunk. The sacrum includes six vertebrae, and the expanded transverse processes of caudal vertebrae may articulate with caudal ribs. The scapulocoracoid is large and broad. The ilium is both anteroposteriorly long and dorsoventrally deep, and it bears pegs for articulation with sockets on the pubis and ischium, as in other ceratosaurs. The nearly complete pes shows no particular locomotor specializations and allows reinterpretation of the "raptorial" pedal ungual of Noasaurus as a manual element. These new specimens also illuminate the morphology of other noasaurids, especially those from the Lameta Formation

Hubble's legacy : reflections by those who dreamed it, built it, and observed the universe with it( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The development and operation of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) have resulted in many rich legacies, most particularly in science and technology - but in culture as well. This book, which includes contributions from historians of science, key scientists and administrators, and one of the principal astronauts who led many of the servicing missions, is meant to capture the history of this iconic instrument

Marine algae of Dominica by William Randolph Taylor( Book )

2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One hundred forty-one species of marine algae are reported from Dominica, W.I., with field notes. An ecological description of twelve collecting localities is given. A discussion of the differences between Agardhiella tenera (J. Agardh) Schmitz of the West Indies and New England is made which results in a new combination, Agardhiella baileyi (Harvey) W. R. Taylor, for the material from New England
A monograph on foliar anatomy of the genera Connellia, Cottendorfia, and Navia (Bromeliaceae) by Harold Ernest Robinson( Book )

3 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 102 presently known species of the pitcairnioid genera Connellia, Cottendorfia, and Navia are discussed, illustrated, and keyed on the basis of cross sections and epidermal peels of leaves. Comparison with other genera of the bromeliad sub-family Pitcairnioideae indicates Connellia, Cottendorfia, and Navia belong in a series with Ayensua, Brocchinia, Fosterella, Pitcairnia, and Puya that have sharply demarcated chlorenchyma and water-storage layers in the mesophyll. Abromeitiella, Deuterocohnia, Dyckia, Encholirium, and Hechtia seem to be another related series without such sharp demarcation. Connellia is considered related to a series of Cottendorfia species having elongate stomata. Many Cottendorfia species show abaxial water-storage tissue of a structure similar to Puya and some Amazonian species of Pitcairnia. In Navia, the species with paniculate or racemose inflorescences are found to represent three rather distinct groups, one of which seems close to Cottendorfia. Species of Navia with vascular bundles more completely enclosed in chlorenchyma, with scales replaced by trichomes, with sessile or glomerate inflorescences, or with connate and partially reduced sepals are considered specialized. A great number of substomatal variations are recorded in Navia that distinguish species or groups of species. Navia lopezii is shown to have a very modified epidermal structure with simple stomata and no scales, characters unlike any other bromeliad presently known
