Re: Ceratopsid controversy

REPLY: One of the best, and rather thorough,
explications of this (ceratopsids probably did not
gallop like rhinos) remains:
Dawn Adams, 1989. Structure and function in the
ceratopsian forelimb. Ph.D. dissertation, Univ.
California Berkeley, 1-379.
Others have investigated the subject -- unfortunately,
without giving Dawn the credit she richly deserves.
Her dissertation is available at University Microfilms
