Re: Upper size limits in dino...



1)  A large continent like Pangaea is as far as you can get up the
species-area curve.

2) Animals at the top of the curve tend to be the largest creatures

3)  If the carrying capacity of a continent collapses, even temporarily, the
top of the pyramid become unsupportable => extinct.
