Muschelkalk
The Muschelkalk (German for "shell-bearing limestone"; french: calcaire coquillier) is a sequence of sedimentary rock, sedimentary rock strata (a lithostratigraphy, lithostratigraphic unit) in the geology of central and western Europe. It has a Middle Triassic (240 to 230 million years) age and forms the middle part of the tripartite Germanic Trias, that give the Triassic its name, lying above the older Buntsandstein and below the younger Keuper. The Muschelkalk ("mussel chalk") consists of a sequence of limestone and Dolomite (rock), dolomite beds. In the past, the time span in which the Muschelkalk was deposited could also be called "Muschelkalk". In modern stratigraphy, however, the name only applies to the stratigraphic unit. Occurrence The name ''Muschelkalk'' was first used by German geologist Georg Christian Füchsel (1722-1773). In 1834, Friedrich August von Alberti included it into the Triassic system (stratigraphy), system. The name indicates a characteristic feature of ...

Eoraptor
''Eoraptor'' () is a genus of small, lightly built, Basal (phylogenetics), basal sauropodomorpha, sauropodomorph. One of the earliest-known dinosaurs, it lived approximately 231 to 228 myr, million years ago, during the Late Triassic in Western Gondwana, in the region that is now northwestern Argentina. The type species, type and only species, ''Eoraptor lunensis'', was first described in 1993, and is known from an almost complete and well-preserved skeleton and several fragmentary ones. ''Eoraptor'' had heterodont, multiple tooth shapes, which suggests that it was omnivore, omnivorous. History of discovery The bones of this primitive dinosaur were first discovered in 1991, by University of San Juan paleontologist Ricardo Martínez, during field work conducted by the University of Chicago and the University of San Juan. The holotype specimen ''PVSJ 512'' was discovered in muddy siltstone belonging to the Cancha de Bochas Member of the Ischigualasto Formation in Argentina. The ...

Coelophysis
''Coelophysis'' ( Traditional English pronunciation of Latin, traditionally; or , as heard more commonly in recent decades) is an extinct genus of coelophysid Theropoda, theropod dinosaur that lived approximately 221.5 to 196 million years ago during the latter part of the Triassic Period (geology), Period in what is now the southwestern United States and also in South Africa and Zimbabwe.Weishampel, David B; et al. (2004). "Dinosaur distribution (Early Jurassic, Africa)." In: Weishampel, David B.; Dodson, Peter; and Osmólska, Halszka (eds.): The Dinosauria, 2nd, Berkeley: University of California Press. Pp. 535–536. . ''Coelophysis'' was a small, slenderly-built, ground-dwelling, bipedal carnivore, that could grow up to long. It is one of the earliest known dinosaur genus, genera. Scattered material representing similar animals has been found worldwide in some Late Triassic and Early Jurassic formations. The type species ''C. bauri'', originally given to the genus ''Coe ...

Plateosaurus
''Plateosaurus'' (probably meaning "broad lizard", often mistranslated as "flat lizard") is a genus of Plateosauridae, plateosaurid dinosaur that lived during the Late Triassic Period (geology), period, around 214 to 204 timeline of the evolutionary history of life, million years ago, in what is now Central and Northern Europe and Greenland, North America. ''Plateosaurus'' is a basal (phylogenetics), basal (early) sauropodomorpha, sauropodomorph dinosaur, a so-called prosauropoda, "prosauropod". In 2019, the ICZN replaced the former type species ''P. engelhardti'' with ''P. trossingensis'' due to the former being undiagnostic. Currently, there are three valid species, ''P. trossingensis, P. longiceps,'' and ''P. gracilis.'' However, others have been assigned in the past, and there is no broad consensus on the species Taxonomy (biology), taxonomy of plateosaurid dinosaurs. Similarly, there are a plethora of Synonym (taxonomy), synonyms (invalid duplicate names) at the genus level. ...

Dinosaur
Dinosaurs are a diverse group of reptiles of the clade Dinosauria. They first appeared during the Triassic Geological period, period, between 243 and 233.23 annum, 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 201.3 million years ago; their dominance continued throughout the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. The fossil record shows that birds are modern feathered dinosaurs, having Evolution of birds, evolved from earlier Theropoda, theropods during the Late Jurassic Epoch (geology), epoch, and are the only dinosaur lineage to survive the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event approximately 66 million years ago. Dinosaurs can therefore be divided into avian dinosaurs, or birds; and the extinct non-avian dinosaurs, which are all dinosaurs other than birds. Dinosaurs are a varied group of animals ...
