     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?
