Morphology and Ontogeny of Alphagaulus pristinus

research1

My undergraduate research project at the University of Oregon (during an exchange program) focused on understanding changes in morphology during ontogeny in the poorly known Alphagaulus pristinus described in 1903 by Douglass on the basis of a single isolated partial jaw.

The results of this research were presented at the SVP annual meeting in 2008 and are published in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology.
