A number of recent news items:


With recent stories about a smuggled Deinocheirus skull returned to
Mongolia and Sternberg fossils collected in Kansas donated to a new
museum there, here is another twist on fossil repatriation.

The governor of San Juan Province in Argentina is requesting the
return from Harvard University of fossils collected by Alfred Romer in
Ischigualasto in 1950s  (in Spanish)

Dinosaur online database debuts.

However, why are most of the herbivores (including sauropods,
ceratopsians, hadrosaurs) listed as "omnivorous" while other similar
genera are correctly listed as "herbivorous"?  Can't really recommend
this resource as reliable for now....
