Ben Creisler

Some recent (and not so recent) items:

GSA abstracts

The abstracts for the 2016 Geological Society of American meeting can be queried here:



NOTE: There are currently copyright and other restrictions on the posted content, with exceptions for educational use only, so I can't provide titles, authors, and abstracts. There does not appear to be any explicit media permissions at this time, so presumably the information is embargoed until shortly before the meeting in September.

For the curious (who won't put the content online or otherwise publish it or discuss it before the apparent embargo is off) queries with results include:

dinosaur, Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops, Brontosaurus, Stegosaurus, tetrapod, mammal, reptile, bird, ichthyosaur, feather
