More on Triassic finds in Argentina + Japanese hadrosaur + Spinosaurus NOVA + more

Ben Creisler

The big news this week, of course, is the SVP meeting in Berlin--also,
expect some new taxa to be announced and published (at least three
hadrosaurs, for one) before the end of the week!

Here a number of recent news and blog items:


Triassic fossils from Argentina--an English-language version of the
news I posted earlier about a major discovery of Triassic fossils in
San Juan Province, Argentina


in Spanish


I've posted a number of news items in Japanese about the on-going
discoveries of this hadrosaur specimen. Here's an item in English.

A useful summary of info about Deinocheirus by Yoshitsugu Kobayashi (in English)

Spinosaurus is later this week (Nov. 5) on PBS

An older item that may apply to the recent paper "How the pterosaur
got its wings"....
Video about aerodynamics by John Maynard Smith...why pterosaurs (like
early birds) likely had a functional aerodynamic tail to stabilize
flight before full winged flight developed.
