gator growth and dinosaurs

This just in, published in a journal that readers of this list may not 
regularly consult:

Woodward, Horner, and Farlow. 2011. Osteohistological evidence for determinate 
growth in the American alligator. Journal of Herpetology 45: 339-342.

Comparisons are made to dinosaurs and other archosaurs, and the study fuzzies 
up the matter of how long after attaining skeletal maturity the beasts might 
have lived.
