Re: Tarbosaurus?

>Bakker's thesis that predator-prey ratios can provide a handle on dinosaur
metabolism is perfectly good, but everybody disregards his argument because
of taphonomic "analysis paralysis." They can't get by the taphonomy and
collection biases to see the underlying truth of his argument. (Never
thought I'd be defending Bakker's ideas in an open forum, but here I am.)<

Has Bakker ever actually published on this? I know Bakker has offered his
opinion on this issue in books and in interviews in any number of media, but
I've not seen his actual data. I'm not neccessarily questioning it, just
curious about the "underlying truth" of his argument.
