New papers of note et al.



P.A. Colinvaux, Georg Irion, M.E. Rasanen, M.B. Bush, J. De Mello, 2001. A paradigm to be discarded: geological and paleoecological data falsify the Haffer & Prance refuge hypothesis of Amazonian speciation. Amazoniana 16:609-646

Lesley J. Rogers, 2002. Lateralization in vertebrates: its early evolution, general pattern, and development. Advances in the Study of Behavior 31:107-161. pp. 112-117 cover extant avialian theropods, pp. 144-151 is an excellent summation of the data re: "Advantages and disadvantages of being lateralized".

As an addendum to John Hutchinson's interesting notes on the List, and Gregory Paul's, a few bibliographical citations are useful:
David Carrier & C.G. Farmer
      2000 The evolution of pelvic aspiration in archosaurs. Paleobiology 26(2):271-293
      2000 The integration of ventilation and locomotion in archosaurs. American Zoologist 40(1):87-100
David Carrier, R.M. Walker, D.V. Lee, 2001
      Influence of rotational inertia on turning performance of theropod dinosaurs: clues from humans with increased rotational inertia. Journal of Experimental Biology 204(22):3917-3926
D.L. Jindrich & R.J. Full, 1999. Many-legged maneuverability: dynamics of turning in hexapods. Journal of Experimental Biology 202(12):1603-1623. This paper, and many others, is available at <www.polypedal.berkeley.edu> in PDF format, and is quite interesting...more so than the size-shifting "spinosaur" appearing on the screen last year...
