  Ivakhnenko, M.F. 2005. Comparative survey of Lower Permian tetrapod
  faunas of estern Europe and South Africa. _Palaeontological Journal_ 39
  (1): 66-71.

  "Late Permian tetrapod faunas from Eastern Europe and South Africa
   originated from a common center probably located on the western coast
   the Tethys. The subsequent development of the two faunas was associated
   with changes in the physiographic conditions, from the seashore
   environments characteristic of the beginning of the Late Permian to the
   plakors (flat interfluves) of the Early Triassic."


  Surkov, M.V. 2005. The first dicynodont from the terminal Lower Triassic
  of European Russia, with special reference to the evolution of the
  masticatory apparatus of these therapsids. _Palaeontological Journal_ 39
  (1): 72-78.

  "A dicynodont from the terminal Lower Triassic of Eastern Europe is
   described for the first time. The skull is represented by a premaxilla
   and articular bones, which are referred to as a new genus and species,
   *Putillosaurus sennikovi* gen. et sp. nov. The study of the premaxilla
   and lower jaw of Late Permian dicynodonts displays the diictodontoid
   (cutting) and dicynodontoid (cutting-grinding) patterns of their
   masticatory apparatus. Only the forms with the dicynodontoid pattern
   survived the Late Permian crisis, while dicynodonts with the
   diictodontoid pattern became extinct at that time."


  Averianov, A.O. 2005. The first choristoderes (Diapsida, Choristodera)
  from the Paleogene of Asia. _Palaeontological Journal_ 39 (1): 79-84.

  "Fragmentary remains of a choristodere cf. *Simoedosaurus* sp. (teeth
   postcranial bones) from the Upper Paleocene--Early Eocene of southern
   Kazakhstan (Dzhylga 1a and Dzhylga 1b localities) are described. This
   the first record of this group from the Paleogene of Asia and one of
   choristodere records from coastal beds."

  Little steps are often the hardest to take.  We are too used to making leaps 
in the face of adversity, that a simple skip is so hard to do.  We should all 
learn to walk soft, walk small, see the world around us rather than zoom by it.
