Re: illegal fossil sales?

In a message dated 98-07-06 16:24:30 EDT, you write:

 If it is illegal to export Chinese fossils from the
 Caudipteryx/Sinosauropteryx/Confuciornis locality, what should one do if
 one finds someone selling fossils from said locality?
 Is there someone the SVP is working with to help crack down on this
 theft? >>
It's illegal in China, but not in Tucson, apparently. The Society of
Vertebrate Palentology has an ethics statement on this issue that is usually
published in its News Bulletin. Read it. Thanks. Dan Varner.
