Cooperation between amateurs and professionaly...



    Despite the mis-use of the word dinosaur (probably to attract attention of potential readers) in the article title (link sent earlier by E. Lurio, then by me), it is nice to see that a very constructive cooperation between an amateur paleontologist and professionals is described.  IMHO, this is as it should be.  Mutual respect is a good by-word here, when both elements are operating in a good-faith way.  Does anyone out there have any take on what percentage of the really important paleontological finds have been made by amateurs?
