Okay, on working on this Dinosaur genera list, I have been working with
a Linnaean system, hoping to be somewhat consistent with modern animal
classifications. But it is becoming obvious that a full and accurate
Linnaean list may not be possible, at least not with out becoming
hopelessly confusing. Therefore I have two options which I am
1)Using a Linnaean system, but for simplicities sake, using only
Superorder, Order, Suborder, Infraorder, Family, Genus, Species. The
draw back is that it may not be completely comprehensive or accurate.
2) Using a cladogram. The drawback here is that I have run across
several disparate versions of cladograms in my wanderings over the 'Net
and the local library.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Thoughts on why option 1 would be
good or bad? How I might resolve the problem with option 2? Anything?
Thanks much, and I appreciate your patience with this!!
