We are pleased to announce that New Mexico Museum of Natural History and
Science Bulletin 17, Dinosaurs of New Mexico, is now available. This 230
page volume edited by Spencer G. Lucas and Andrew B. Heckert contains 27
papers derived from the highly successful symposium of the same name held
Saturday, April 29 in Albuquerque. Topics covered include dinosaur body
and trace fossils from each period of the Mesozoic and even putative
Paleocene dinosaurs as well. A full table of contents appears later in
this message.  This bulletin was published with support from the
U.S. Bureau of Land Management.

Volumes can be purchased directly from the museum Natureworks Store (see
the NMMNH web page at:   www.museums.state.nm.us/) Each volume is $30,
with an additional $5 shipping and handling for domestic orders, $10
