MIDDLETON & GATESY



Recently saw the following...

Middleton, K.M. & Gatesy, S.M. 2000. Theropod forelimb design and 
evolution. _Zool. J. Linn. Soc._ 128, 149-187.

Caldwell, .W. & Cooper, J.A. 2000. Redescription, palaeobiogeography 
and palaeoecology of _Coniasaurus crassidens_ Owen, 1850 (Squamata) 
from the Lower Chalk (Cretaceous; Cenomanian) of SE England. _Zool. 
J. Linn. Soc._ 127, 423-452.

Recent issues of ZJLS also include papers on a new megatheriine sloth 
(_Eremotherium eomigrans_), the phylogeny of hemiphractine tree frogs 
(apparently some lineages lost their pouches and tadpoles were 
regained independently several times), phylogeny in tropidurid 
lizards, the newly named Pleistocene tortoise _Hesperotestudo_ from 
Bermuda and... some stuff on things called temnospondyls:)

Oh yeah, there is a letter in the latest _Nature_ from a National 
Geographic editor, in response to what _Nature_ said about 
_Archeoraptor_. What do people think of _Archeoraptor_ following the 
Florida symposium?
