RE: Matematical model of dinosaur population.

Ok, then we you know an estimated mathematical model of a single species
of dinosaur, like Coelophysis (rinehart_etal, Growth and population of
Coelophysis, 2008) ???

You seem to have overlooked the rest of my e-mail. Dinosaurs aren't a
species, so there is no single population. Besides, we don't know enough

about the environment and the metabolism of Mesozoic dinosaurs to even
at, say, carrying capacities. How much food was needed to sustain a 
population of "*Omeisaurus maoianus*"? We have no idea.
