New version of Dinosaur Encyclopaedia



I'd like to announce that V13 of the Dinosaur Encyclopaedia software is now available. If you have considered purchasing this in the past, now would be a good time to re-consider, as this will be the last update for at least 18-24 months, and possibly the last update period. This package has entries for every named dinosaur and Mesozoic bird published up until the middle of February, 2011 (some 2460 species across 1327 genera). Each entry has all the basic information, and detailed specimen lists (currently more than 33,000) with location, stratigraphy, description of fossils and map reference. Additional essay sections cover, in depth, topics such as classification, dinosaurs and birds, extinction, behaviour, clades, endothermy, time periods, geographic areas, etc. 100 significant dinosaur sites/formations have individual entries that include lists of other vertebrates found at the site (more than 1300 vertebrate taxa), and there is a section on ichnogenera (nearly 300) and oospecies. Each section and entry has an extensive reference list, amounting to more than 4500 in total, and repeated for all taxa and sections as appropriate. The whole package comes as an easy to navigate PDF file with multiple cross-references and extensive indexes.
If you would like further information, please contact me off-list.
thanks
