Vertebral Morphology, Alternation of Neural Spine Height, and Structure in Permo-Carboniferous Tetrapods, and a Reappraisal of Primitive Modes of Terrestrial Locomotion - UC Publications in Zoology 122 (Paperback)Stuart Shigeo Sumida (author)

In this volume the author examines the pervasive pattern of alternation of structure and height of vertebral neural spines in the context of a larger review of axial structure in the most terrestrial of primitive Permo-Carboniferous tetrapods. He concludes that a coupled pattern of axial dorsiflexion and rotation played a significant role in primitive terrestrial locomotion.
