plesiosaurs and fish specimens

Dear colleagues,

For those with interest in Oxfordian plesiosaurs and fish: I updated these 
sections in the site: http://cubanjurassic.uci.cu/ 

This new project has been designed to allow maximum interaction among the 
community. Its main goal is to receive your observations of the cuban jurassic 
specimens in the form of comments.
We would like to invite you to join (register) in the site, and comment the 
specimens of your interest.
Please, feel free to post any comment about the specimens.

Thanks for your support,

Y. Ceballos Izquierdo

Subject: new old papers and site re-launched.
Importance: High

Dear colleagues and friends, 

We deleted the security certificate and re-launched the Cuban website where
you'll find detailed information about our Cuban Jurassic vertebrate
specimens. Discard previous https, now you can easily and directly access
the site at this URL: 


Additionally, I upload three hard to find papers about the Cuban Jurassic in
the plants and dinosaur section: 

Areces-Mallea, A. (1990): Piazopteris branneri (White) Lorch, helecho del
Jurásico Inferior-Medio de Cuba. Revista Sociedad Mexicana de Paleontología,

Areces-Malléa, A. (1991): Consideraciones paleobiogeográficas sobre la
presencia de Piazopteris branneri en el Jurásico de Cuba. Revista Española
de Paleontología, 6(2):126-134. 

Gutiérrez, R. (1981): Hallazgo de restos de reptil en rocas jurásicas en
Punta de la Sierra, prov. Pinar del Rio.- Rev. Voluntad Hidráulica, 18 (56):

Thanks for all your suggestions.

We hope you enjoy the site, and discuss the specimens!

Dear colleagues,
please find online (at: https://cubanjurassic.uci.cu/) the first version of the 
"Illustrative Catalogue of Late Jurassic Vertebrates from Western Cuba", which 
includes descriptions and original photos of most of the (published and 
unpublished) Cuban Jurassic vertebrate specimens from various collections.

Inside the portal, you can navigate through the different sections covering the 
Jurassic of Cuba and through the main collections. The sections on 
invertebrates, plants, fish, marine reptiles, pterosaurs and dinosaurs include 
a summary and original images, skeletal drawings and nice life restorations of 
several paleoartists. However, the central and most important part of the 
catalogue are the collections and their vertebrate specimens. Collections have 
their own description and a hyperlink to a list of their specimens. You can 
access each specimen to see details (metadata) and photos.

This project also includes a text (in preparation) and is an effort of M. 
Iturralde-Vinent and I with the main goal of putting together all the 
information on Cuban Jurassic vertebrate specimens available to the scientific 
community, so that paleontologists can review, comment, and even identify the 
Cuban specimens (you must be registered). In the left, "The catalogue" block is 
still imcomplete, but you can find in the block a draft of the "Previous work", 
"Geological settings" and "Acknowledgements".

This first draft of this catalog will be available for one month in this URL, 
until DATE, so we can receive your comments before the permanent version is 
established. The site is optimized for Firefox and IE8+. If you have any 
question or suggestion, please reply off list.

We hope you enjoy the site, and discuss the specimens!
