I note that the SVP meeting abstract volume is out, I'll try and look
through it this weekend - lots of stuff happening...
Now to some odd Russian stuff.
In English a very odd paper I still haven't figured out:
Zotin, A.I. & A.A. Zotin. 1995. Progressive evolution: thermodynamic
foundations. Biology Bulletin 22(4):321-328. Whew...
Three in Russian that should be interesting but we'll need George or
someone to translate:
Seslavinskiy, K.B. 1995. The correlation of the Mezocenozoic volcanic
and tectonic events with the climate's changes of the Earth.
Dokl. Akad. Nauk 341(2):236-238.
Antipov, M.P. & A.E. Shlezinger. 1995. Cretaceous geological events
and their place in the geological evolution of the Earth.
Dokl. Akad. Nauk 341(1):79-82.
Gavrilov, V.M. 1994. Possibilities of birds to change non-evaporative
heat loss and the origin of homoiothermy with the formation of basal
metabolic rate. Dokl. Akad. Nauk 339(1):130-136.
There is a short but nice article on Bill Stout and some of his recent
reconstructions - which are beautiful and non anorexic by the way -
in Terra 32(5):2-4. William Stout's Visions of Gondwana. It's a
publication of the LACM. Sept/Oct 1995
The Nature with the plant eating croc came in:
Wu, Xiao-chun, Hans Sues & A. Sun. 1995. A plant-eating crocodyliform
reptile from the Cretaceous of China. Nature 376:678-680. 24AUG95
Chimaerosuchus seems to be sister to Notosuchus between the Protosuchus
group and the Eusuchia. Say that 3 times fast.
Merck, J.W., Jr. 1995. Mesozoic Errors. The Sciences, Sept/Oct 1995,
pp. 40-43. Review of some CD-roms.
Also, a copy of Notes from the Underground (9(4), July-Aug. 1995)
which has a fun review of the current thoughts on the Coelophysis
Rioarribasaurus discussions and an announcement of a formation of a
pterosaur society. Its from the N. Mexico Friends of Paleo.
The SVP abstracts are overwhelming - although Tom has a bunch of things
in the theropod symposium.
Finally, next June here at the Smithsonian there will be a meeting of
the Society of Avian Paleontology and Evolution (SAPE) which is
just before the North American Paleontological Convention (NAPC)
also here. There will be a symposium of Mesozoic birds which should
be fun. I'm a member of the organizational committee and Wellnhofer
is in charge of the symposium. I'll keep you informed.
