Re: Semi-Sprawled Sauropods (Was: WAVP Report)
<SNIP> -- sorry systematists everywhere, you'll have to wait for
the morphologists to figure these characters out. =)
In summary, you can't pronate the manus in a sauropod by crossing
the radius over the ulna. You either have to bend the forelimbs, or
shift the position of the radius with the limb remaining straight.
See why sauropods are so cool? =)
Looking forward to seeing your dissertation illustrations of sauropod stance.

I think, I would like to share this quote with all of you. It applies
broadly to the applications of our various disciplines - perhaps
especially to those of pictures and illustrations of our ideas,
whether they be they purely geological or purely biological in
"Words following words in long succession, however ably selected
those words may be, can never convey so distinct an idea of the
visible forms of the earth as the first glance at a good map.....In
the extent and variety of its resources, in rapidity of utterance, in
the copiousness and completeness of the information it communicates,
in precision, conciseness, perspicuity, in the hold it has upon
memory, in vividness of imagery and power of expression, in
convenience of reference, in portability, in the combination of so
many and such useful quantities, a Map has no rival."
George Greenough, 1840, First President of the British Geological Society.
