Trees that sauropods ate found in India

This is potentially  a very interesting story--but the current
versions of the news item appear to have some  mix-ups about the
geologic periods. If this site sits on the "Deccan trap" as stated,
then it's got to be Late Cretaceous, not Jurassic, in date; HOWEVER,
the plant Glossopteris would have to be pre-Jurassic;  other versions
of the news story on the web appear to have the same points of
confusion. Wait for the paper, as they say...

More on supposed Paleogene dinosaur tracks from Uzbekistan (in Russian)

I'm still trying to find the full citation for the paper that was
published about this odd claim. A number of news stories show photos,
but these are hard to decipher and certainly may not be what are
alleged--dinosaur tracks alongside advanced mammal tracks
