VISIT THE MAASTRICHT NATURAL HISTORY 
MUSEUM ON-LINE

The Maastricht Natural History Museum is a fascinating 
museum whose on-line presence includes both Dutch and 
English interactive web pages for exploration. You can 
explore vertebrate paleontology, geology, biology, footware 
through the ages, and a myraid of other topics on-line (not to 
mention type section geologic unit descriptions). This highly 
graphic museum site allows you to virtually walk through this 
museum (with patience) to give you an idea what a visit to the 
real museum would really be like.

Go to http://www.nhmmaastricht.nl to visit this museum.

A COMPLETE LISTING OF ALL KNOWN DINOSAUR 
GENERA CORRECTION!

A list of over 800 dinosaur genera can be found at the 
Dinosaur Genera web site which you can now find that I have 
listed the correct link. This list includes all known dinosaurs 
plus a few (perhaps closely related) non-dinosaur species 
which are often confused for dinosaurs. Along with the 
species name it includes the reference to where that species 
was first described.

Go to http://www.cybercomm.net/~rmarguls/d-genera.html 
to explore the topic of dinosaur identification.

Paleontological Laboratories, Inc. has become one of the 
world's premier suppliers of fine fossil specimens. Ranging 
from Green River Formation flora and fauna to new Jurassic 
dinosaur species, WPL's work can be found in museums and 
private collections around the world as well as on its on-line 
site complete with fossil galleries.
