Ornithopod Dinosaurs



Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Sauropsida
  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Ornithischia
  Suborder Cerapoda
  Infraorder Ornithopoda
The Ornithopoda (meaning "bird feet") are an infraorder of herbivorous (plant-eating) dinosaurs. Early members of this infraorder were small bipedal (walking on two legs) running animals. Later Ornithopods were often much larger and at least partially quadrupedal (walking on four legs). As a group they were very successful, especially the duck-bills (Hadrosaurs), it seems principally as a result their evolution of sophisticated chewing apparatus. The name Ornithopoda, refers to the animals feet, which in later species were three-toed (earlier species often had four toes), and outwardly tended to resemble those of birds (although the Ornithopoda are not closely related to birds).

Ornithopods first appeared during the early Jurassic period, perhaps around 200 million years ago, and survived until the end of the Cretaceous period. Ornithopods were among the dinosaurs which died out during the mass extinction of 65 million years ago.

The Ornithopoda infraorder, together with the infraorders of Ceratopsia ("horned faces") and Pachycephalosauria ("thick-headed lizards") form the the suborder Cerapoda of the Ornithischian dinosaurs.

Horns and Beaks: Ceratopsian and Ornithopod Dinosaurs (Life of the Past)
Indiana University Press
Released: 2006-11-14
Kindle Edition (383 pages)

Horns and Beaks: Ceratopsian and Ornithopod Dinosaurs (Life of the Past)
 
Product Description:

Horns and Beaks completes Ken Carpenter’s series on the major dinosaur types. As with his volumes on armored, carnivorous, and sauropodomorph dinosaurs, this book collects original and new information, reflecting the latest discoveries and research on these two groups of animals. The Ornithopods include Iguanodon, one of the first dinosaurs ever discovered and analyzed, and perhaps the most common and best-documented group, the hadrosaurs or "duckbilled dinosaurs." The Ceratopsians include Triceratops, known for its distinctive three-horned skull and protective collar.

Contributors are Michael K. Brett-Surman, Kathleen Brill, Kenneth Carpenter, Benjamin S. Creisler, Tony DiCroce, Andrew A. Farke, Peter M. Galton, David Gilpin, Thomas M. Lehman, Nate L. Murphy, Christopher J. Ott, Gregory S. Paul, Xabier Pereda Suberbiola, Albert Prieto-Marquez, Bruce Rothschild, José Ignacio Ruiz-Omeñaca, Darren H.

Product Description:
Ornithopods, or bird-like dinosaurs, were herbivores that thrived mostly in North America during the Cretaceous period, between 145 million and 65 million years ago. This book explores many different ornithopods and why they had unusual features such as crested heads or duckbills. From fossil evidence, paleontologists have determined more and more about how these dinosaurs ate, moved, communicated, and cared for their young. Fascinating questions such as what we know about prehistoric plants and dinosaur food chains are answered in this engaging guide.

Product Description:
The Ornithopoda, one of five suborders within the Ornithischia, was originally proposed by Marsh in 1881 to include those bipedal dinosaurs possessing a predentary bone fitted over the rostral end of the mandibles. Ornithopods as recognized today can be further characterized by moderately long facial skele­ tons equipped with well-developed, often toothless premaxillae and moderate to large external nares. Maxillary and dentary dentitions vary but usually consist of at least one replacement series beneath the functional set; some have many rows of successional teeth. Tooth morphology suggests ornithopods were suc­ cessful herbivores but, as will be discussed, the precise way(s) in which ornitho­ pods chewed their food, hence lending important information about their tro­ phic position, has not been settled. Postcranially, ornithopods show specializa­ tion for bipedality in hindlimb construction and lack well-developed protective structures on their flanks, back, and tail. The Ornithopoda can itself be divided into five families: Fabrosauridae, He­ terodontosauridae, Hypsilophodontidae, 19uanodontidae, and Hadrosauridae (subdivided into the subfamilies Hadrosaurinae and Lambeosaurinae). Both fabrosaurids and heterodontosaurids, first known from the Late Triassic and Early Jurassic of Argentina and South Africa, were small animals differing in details of cranial, dental, and appendicular anatomy. Fabrosaurids are be­ lieved to represent the basal ornithopod stock (Galton 1972, 1978; Thulborn 1970a, 1972). During the Jurassic, ornithopods underwent major radiations that included the medium- to large-sized Hypsilophodontidae and the large­ bodied Iguanodontidae, both of which survived into the Cretaceous.
