Form, Function, Fossils

Fellow inmates,
Here's an enlightening review paper for those interested in life beyond the
cladogram (the 'natural history' of extinct organisms):

Hickman, C.S.  (1988)  Analysis of form and function in fossils.  American
Zoologist, 28: 775-793.

Most of Hickman's examples are invertebrates, but the general principles are
easily extrapolated to dinosaurs.

Back to the swamp...
