      Introduction. Early palaeohistologists were interested in problems of taxon determination using small bone fragments, assuming that bone histological variation contains diagnostic information and thus, put in modern terms, a phylogenetic signal (e.g. Queckett, a, b, ).In the second half of the 20th century, palaeohistologists (with some exceptions such as Houde (), who focused on Cited by:   This paper is the Ninth Report of the Taxonomic Sub‐Committee of the BOU Records Committee (BOURC‐TSC).

      Among living fliers (birds, bats, and insects), birds display relatively high aspect ratios, a dimensionless shape variable that distinguishes long and narrow vs. short and broad wings. Increasing aspect ratio results in a functional tradeoff between low induced drag (efficient cruise) and increased wing inertia (difficult takeoff). Given the wide scope of its functional effects, the pattern Cited by: 8. This banner text can have markup.. web; books; video; audio; software; images; Toggle navigation.

Odontornithes is an obsolete and disused taxonomic term proposed by Othniel Charles Marsh for birds possessing teeth, notably the genera Hesperornis and Ichthyornis from the Cretaceous deposits of Kansas. In Marsh divided this "subclass" into Odontolcae, with the teeth standing in grooves, and Odontotormae, with the teeth in separate alveoles or sockets.

The Odontoanserae is a proposed clade that includes the family Pelagornithidae (pseudo-toothed birds) and the clade Anserimorphae (the order Anseriformes and their stem-relatives).

The placement of the pseudo-toothed birds in the evolutionary tree of birds has been problematic, with some supporting the placement of them near the orders Procellariformes and Pelecaniformes based on features in.
