The Jurassic period spanned the time interval from to million years ago. The major events of the Jurassic were the explosive adaptive radiation of dinosaurs and the evolution of birds (sometimes referred to as the avian dinosaurs), the diversification of the cycads, seed ferns and the "cycadeoids", and the continued breakup of Pangaea.

Taxonomy and taphonomy of Rhomaleosaurus zetlandicus (Plesiosauria, Reptilia) from the Toarcian (Lower Jurassic)of the Yorkshire by: Plesiosaurus (Greek: πλησίος (plesios), near to + σαῦρος (sauros), lizard) is a genus of extinct, large marine sauropterygian reptile that lived during the early part of the Jurassic Period, and is known by nearly complete skeletons from the Lias of England.

It is distinguishable by its small head, long and slender neck, broad turtle-like body, a short tail, and two pairs of Genus: †Plesiosaurus, Conybeare, Middle Jurassic rocks reflect a variety of depositional environments including shallow marine, fluvial, deltaic, saltmarsh and coastal lagoonal (brackish-water and freshwater).

In addition, carbonate (limestone) as well as clastic (mudstone, siltstone, sandstone) sedimentation was often widespread. These two factors – depositional environments and increased carbonate.

From brand-new movie dinosaur characters including awesome Baryonyx and a terrifying new hybrid breed, to old favourites like T. Rex and Stegosaurus. The Kimmeridge Clay is a sedimentary deposit of fossiliferous marine clay which is of Late Jurassic to lowermost Cretaceous age and occurs in southern and eastern England and in the North Sea.

You will find information about the anatomy, classification and evolution of the group, along with data on specific genera and are also sections dedicated to plesiosaur palaeobiology or how the animals were in life.

Key questions concern their swimming and diet. Jurassic source rocks are mostly strata from the Lower Jurassic Sewa Formation, Middle Jurassic Quse, Shaqiaomu, Buqu and Xiali formations and the Upper Jurassic Suowa Formation.

During the earliest Jurassic, the subgroup with the most species was the Rhomaleosauridae, a possibly very basal split-off of species which were also short-necked. Plesiosaurs in this period were at most five metres (sixteen feet) : Reptilia. Re-Ak A-Tak ' Dilophosaurus with slashing action!.

As pliosaurs go, Attenborosaurus was an anomaly: most of these marine reptiles were characterized by their large heads and short necks, but Attenborosaurus, with its extremely long neck, looked more like a plesiosaur.

But in reality, paleontologists seem to have a soft spot for the books and movies. Why? Because the love of dinosaurs they inspired back in the early '90s arguably changed the research field forever.
