Thanks for the response!

It begs another question: what are the sources for the many papers and 
journals that are often referred to on this list?  Where can one acquire 
them?  I am an SVP member, so I receive all of their material, but I am 
unfamiliar with where I can get other significant scientific writings 
regarding dinosaurs.
