Re: good references?


    I just received a brochure from Academic Press (who published the
"Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs" editted by Currie and Padian).  (It seems to be
a collection of their curretn line of books).  They have the following books
that may help in your quest:

    "Encyclopedia of Reptiles and Amphibians, 2nd Edition"  - editted by
Harold G. Cogger and Richard G. Zweifel.  Published July 1998.  List price:
$39.95.  ISBN: 0-12-178560-2.

    "Ancient Marine Reptiles" - editted by Jack M. Callaway and Elizabeth L.
Nicholls.  Published 1997.  List price: $64.95.  ISBN: 0-12-155210-1.

    I don't have any modern book titles on mammal-like reptiles handy,

        Good luck,

            Allan Edels
