I found a copy of this book in my local libraray, and got a company
that looks for elusive books to hunt for a copy for me. They found me a
copy in wonderful condition, but it took over a year.
For those of you who haven't seen this, it is chock full of really
excellent and imaginative John Gurche paintings that I have never
seen anywhere else.

I'll second the request for information about this one. I've never
even heared of it, but I want it.
On the subject of dinosaur endothermy, Bakker's assertations about
the dominance of endotherms over ectotherms in large animal niches is the
aspect of his arguments that I have heared the least alternatives about.
Might this business about ectotherms increasing respiation with increased
oxygen whenras endotherms do not imply and advantage of ectotherms in
oxygen rich environments?
