Ostrum`s Impact



Just one small indication of how Ostrum revolutionized and spurred on
interest in Dinosaurs with his thoughts on their being related to birds and
consequent warm-bloodedness........
I just got the software version of National Geographic, and typed "Dinosaur"
into the search engine. Spotted Ostrum`s Aug 1978 article "A New Look at
Dinosaurs", and noticed about a couple of dozen articles since then and
3....(yes only 3) articles before his, one in 1954, one in 1942, and one in
1919!
Three articles in 90 years since the magazines inception, and 22 in the 20
years since, ...actually, not counting Ostrum`s,... 21 in the 10 years since
1989!
