New dinosaurs include megalosauroid Torvosaurus gurneyi, tyrannosauroid Nanuqsaurus hoglundi, and oviraptorosaur Anzu wyliei.
New studies were published on the phylogenetic position of Elachura formosa and Antetonitrus ingenipes, the gastralia and manual range of motion of Plateosaurus engelhardti, the teeth of megalosaurids, causal understanding of water displacement by Corvus moneduloides, the cranial anatomy of Europasaurus holgeri, and feather coloration mechanisms in Parotia lawesii. Female song is demonstrated to be widespread and ancestral in passerines. Melanosomes in fossil feathers are suggested to be microbial biofilms. Benefits of being brood parasitized for Corvus corone are discovered.
