What are the current hot topics??
I'm to give a 30 min. presentation on mesozoic reptiles for a grad. level
Adv. Historical Geology class this quarter. As I only have a passing
interests in vert. paleo, and there is no faculty at my school in this area,
I have turned to the esteemed memebers of DML. I'm looking for suggestions
as to what topics I should research for my presentation. Some things I have
tossed around in my head are...
Geographic distribution of dinosaurs
Evolution of birds
Taphonomy/completeness of the fossil record - interpretations?
Basic anatomical classification
Similarities of faunal assemblages along margins of once joined
It is not a heavy paleontology class, so I'm looking to stay away from alot
of systematics. Any suggestions for topics, or recent lit. that would be
worth looking at is greatly appreciated.
thanks in advance,
