don't have Weigert (1995) or Zinke (1998) to hand but I do have the
new Guimarota volume. Oliver Rauhut's chapter on the dinosaurs
_mentions_ the serrations, but they are clearly figured in Wiechmann
and Gloy's chapter on 'pterosaurs and urvogels'. The serrations are
minute and only visible under SEM, but they are there (Wiechmann
and Gloy 2000).
Oho! Dr. Feduccia?

These chapters (which, like the whole book, are a must have) are...
Rauhut, O. W. M. 2000. The dinosaur fauna from the Guimarota
mine, pp. 75-82. In: Martin, T. and Krebs, B. (eds) _Guimarota - A
Jurassic Ecosystem_. Verlag Dr. Friedrich Pfeil, Munchen. ISBN 3-

the Guimarota mine. In: Martin, T. and Krebs, B. (eds), pp. 83-86.
Like most good academic books these days, it is offensively expensive
Interlibrary loan - we don't buy these books, most of us. Use the
system where ever you are. IF it is in print, you can get it - just
maybe not today.
For instance: The Ohio State University Orton Geological Library gets
3000 geologically related periodicals. Annually. Some publications,
as you know, come weekly and some come with less frequency, such as
the publications of all 50 state geological surveys, etc. Some things
that exceed 100 years in age are in archives but you can get them
within 24 hours. The rare book room even contains an original copy of
"De Rey Metallica", amazing. My alumni money goes there - Mrs. Brown
can tell you what *shelf* the volume that you are looking for is on
and what color the binding is. They don't pay the woman enough.
