Paleopathology & Walter Granger NMMNH Bulletins Out



Andy Heckert has asked that we circulate the following information.  And
so I comply...  I suspect that his addition of the Field Museum ad was
accidental, but since there's a chance it too would be of interest to some
readers of our list I've left it in.

Subject: Paleopathology & Walter Granger NMMNH Bulletins Out


To one and all:

The latest two New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science Bulletins are
now available:

Bulletin 20: Dinosores: An annotated bibliography of dinosaur paleopathology
and related topics---1838-2001 by Darren H. Tanke and Bruce M. Rothschild
(96 pp).
        This volume is a comprehensive index of the fossil record of
dinosaur pathologies, including technical, semi-technical, and many popular
references. The two indices cross-reference paleopathologies by both taxon
and pathology. Price is $15 USD.

Bulletin 22: Notes from Diary-Fayum Trip, 1907, by Vincent L. Morgan and
Spencer G. Lucas (148 pp.).
        This bulletin is a detailed description of Walter Granger's trip to
Egypt collecting for the AMNH, including the entire diary itself and a
collection of photographs and drawings from the period. Price is $20 USD.

An order form for these volumes is available online at:

 http://www.nmmnh-abq.mus.nm.us/nmmnh/p3_staff_res_bulletin.html

Or, if that doesn't work, try www.nmnaturalhistory.org, then click on
"Science Research and Collections" and then on "NMMNH&S Bulletins."

Note also that a few of the semi-popular/semi-technical papers from previous
bulletins are online as .pdf files on our page as well.

This is also probably your last chance to order NMMNH Bulletin 4 (Late
Triassic (Carnian and Norian) Tetrapods from the Southwestern United States,
1995. Robert A. Long and Phillip A Murry---250 pp.), which is within 10
copies of going out of print.

Bulletin 21, Triassic stratigraphy and paleontology, edited by myself (A.B.
Heckert) and Lucas, has not gone to the printer yet, but will be available
by the end of the year.

Sincerely,

Andrew B. Heckert, Ph.D.
Geosciences Collections Manager
