Re: Only One Triceratops Species??



Hello again,

Cathy Forster's paper is titled "Species Resolution in Triceratops:
Cladistic and Morphometric Approaches" and is in JVP Volume 16, pages
259-270.  The paper basically takes all sixteen species that were named,
and condenses them down to just T. horridus and T. prorsus.  Granted, she
uses five characters to separate the two species,  but they seem to hold up
quite well.  I am sure that this is what you remembered about the paper.
