The evolution of pneumaticity in Sauropodomorpha and its correlation with body size (primary supervisor: Prof. Michael Benton)

My research focuses on the various parameters that affected dinosaurian body sizes, particularly on pneumaticity, functional morphology of the vertebrae, social behaviour, predator-prey ratios, gegographical distribution, continental vs insular taxa and niche occupation and antagonism.
