MAASTRICHT CONFERENCE ADDENDA
I will save myself some time and send this out as a list message -
I've had quite a few queries following my report on the Third
European Worskshop on Vertebrate Palaeontology. Scroll down for info
on another conference.
First off, I got the website address wrong. The correct one is - -
Again, let me know if you find a photo of all the conference
The conference volume is:
JAGT, J.W.M., LAMBERS, P.H., MULDER, E.W.A. and SCHULP, A.S. (eds)
1998. _Third European Workshop on Vertebrate Palaeontology: Programme
and Abstracts_. Natuurhistorisch Museum Maastricht, pp. 81.
The museum itself can be emailed at email@example.com and may be
able to help if you want a copy of the conference volume.
Chris Brochu noted that, in referring to Eric Mulder's talk on
Maastrichtian marine reptiles, I mentioned European thoracosaurines.
I gather that these were previously unreported. Eric recently wrote
a paper where he described these specimens (one cervical and two
lumbar verts). It is...
MULDER, E.W.A. 1997. Thoracosaurine vertebrae (Crocodylia;
Crocodylidae) from the Maastrichtian type area. _Proc. Koninklijke
Nederlandse Akademie van Wetenschappen_ (Amsterdam) 100: 161-170.
PROGRESSIVE PALAEONTOLOGY '98.
Another European palaeontology meeting is coming up fast: Prog.
Palaeo '98. This is being held at the University of Plymouth on May
27th. As the meeting is being attended by palaeontologists (mostly
grad students) from across the board, it is dominated by things
without backbones including arthropods, bivalves and crinoids.
But there are at least a few tetrapod talks. Leslie Noe is
supposed to be talking about Callovian pliosaurids, but I just
checked the programme and he isn't down there. Damn. However, we do
have Gareth Dyke on London Clay avifauna, Lorna Steel on pterosaur
head crests, Stig Walsh on a Pliocene bonebed (stacked full of marine
mammals and birds - I have spent ages playing with these fossils),
and me on yet another theropod leg bone from the Wealden Group (and
not BMNH R9385). You can see abstracts for these talks at: -
That's linked to the other abstract pages and the home page.
I guess that's all for now.
