Parsimony and Bayesian methods were implemented to elucidate the phylogenetic relationships of all hadrosaurid species. Continuous geometries were studied using the Analysis of Planar Shapes Using Geodesic Paths, a novel landmark-free method that considers the continuous non-linear geometry of the bones. In this way, a total of 299 phylogenetically informative characters (205 cranial and 94 postcranial) were defined and documented, the most extensive character data set ever constructed for hadrosaurid dinosaurs....
