Eric, I don't think you grasp just how much information is lost without
good locality data. Without historical and geographic contect that comes
out of good locality data, relating the fossil to a bigger picture in some
way is really difficult. >>
Oh, but I do. Plenty of vital information is indeed lost. However, something
is always better than nothing in this business. What we need is for private
collectors to be friendly with public collectors. It seems that some PhDs
would rather see some fossils rot than to have the "wrong" people dig them up.
