Conrad Labandeira & paleoinsects
Conrad Labandeira -- whose papers during the past few
years on Mesozoic insects opens avenues of thought on
interrelationality of dinosaur/pterosaur pollinators
in competition with insects -- has contributed a
fascinating paper to a new volume:
C.M. Herrera & Olle Pellmyr, eds., 2002. Plant-animal
interactions: an evolutionary approach (Blackwell
Conrad Labandeira, The history of associations between
plants and animals.
Other interesting papers which shed light (in my mind)
on population dynamics of dinosaur megaherbivores by
Sharon Y. Strauss & A.R. Zangerl, Plant-insect
interactions in terrestrial ecosystems.
Olle Pellmyr, Pollination by animals
Carlos M. Herrera, Seed dispersal by vertebrates
Kjell Danell & Roger Bergstrom, Mammalian herbivory in
The Danell/Bergstrom paper could be a framework for a
mirror paper on dinosaur herbivory in Mesozoic
terrestrial ecosystems, using up-to-date knowledge of
masticatory structures of
David Weishampel's paper on jaw structure of a few
years ago comes to mind as a template.
