Re: JVP 19(2) CD-ROM- psychic alligator/Jack Horner/Sue/Jurassic Foundation

.. The article claims that Jack has discovered more dinosaur fossils than
anyone in history!   My understanding is that Dong Zhiming may actually hold
the record for the most dinosaur fossils found and named.  However,in terms
of discovery in numbers of individual specimens - then Jack  probably has
record just for the _Maiasaura_ bonebed.  (10,000-15,000 individuals
estimated). ...

Just a note for accuracy's sake.  Marion Brandvold and her son David Trexler
found the bonebed and the babies Jack described.  So if you want to give
credit for someone finding the most, it should be Marion.
