Re: How archosauromorphs beat out therapsids

wow, interesting to see how the Discovery News story mention all the
key points found by our sauropod research group FOR 533 (see
and http://www.iupress.indiana.edu/product_info.php?products_id=317633),
and totally fails to mention that all that has already been
extensively published. Matt Wedel's, Daniela Schwarz's and several
other people's research on pneumaticity and the implication of it for
body size is also presented as if Sookias came up with it.....

I am eagerly looking forward to perusing the paper's reference list.

Also - extrapolating from femur length ONLY?????? How 1990 can you
design your study?
