The paper formally describing Sauroposeidon will be in the March JVP (at
last!).  Unless the page number got changed since the proofs came, the
ref will be:

Wedel, M.J., Cifelli, R.L., and Sanders, R.K.  2000.  Sauroposeidon
proteles, a new sauropod from the Early Cretaceous of Oklahoma.  Journal
of Vertebrate Paleontology 20(1):103-108.

For additional information, see the current issue (#40) of Prehistoric
Times.  Natural History is also doing an article, which may or may not
be in the March issue.  You can also find info at the OMNH website:


I'd stick around to chat, but my paleoecology class starts in a couple
minutes, so I gotta cruise.
