This chapter discusses the anatomy, phylogeny, biogeography, and paleobiology of basal iguanodontians. Basal iguanodontians range from small (2 to 3 m long), lightly built active bipeds, represented by Dryosaurus, to large and robust (10 to 11 m long) facultative quadrupeds such as Iguanodon bernissartensis, with an estimated body mass in excess of 2,500 kg. Basal iguanodontians are distributed across the Northern and Southern hemispheres and found in rocks ranging in age from the Late Jurassic to latest Cretaceous.

Keywords:   basal iguanodontians, iguanodontians, bipeds, quadrupeds, Dryosaurus, Iguanodon bernissartensis
