<p>Undergraduate masters level research. This poster was presented at the Progressive Palaeontology conference in Bristol, 2010. It details an osteological description and comparative analysis of a near-complete specimen of the ornithopod dinosaur <em>Tenontosaurus tilletti</em> with previously published descriptions. While it was predominantly a chance for me to develop skills as a comparative anatomist, it did provide some useful insights into the systematic description of this important dinosaur, which plays an important role in our understanding of ornithopod systematics. A revised character diagnosis is provided, attempting to be more quantitative where possible. The thesis is provided in FigShare too.</p>
