Re: [Re: Microvenatoridae?]

Curious, could (and where could) I get papers on these two (Caud. and Micro.)?
Furthermore, is there some sort of "Idiot's Guide to Cladistics" out there
that would serve as a good intro to the whole Cladistics game? Because all it
does right now (for the most part) is rattle my brains... Thanks. 

                                       Thanks all
                                       Caleb Lewis

Cave, cogiturus sum!
