Occasional link roundup returns

It’s been a bit quiet on here this week for a variety of reasons. In the interest of at least bringing you some token palaeontology, here’s a few links form the last week which are worth catching up with. First off, Heinrich brings up the annoying, but annoyingly common, problem of not being cited when it’s hard to see how you’ve been overlooked.

Second, Matt Bonnan has renewed his blogging commitments and started anew. He begins with this nice three-part post with the forthright (but utterly appropriate) title of “Let’s face it, birds are dinosaurs”. Catch parts 1, 2 and 3 here.

Finally, a piece of mine but in another venue. So at least I’m kinda linking to my own work. Lot’s of people have been able to stick their oar in over the Tarbosaurus sale, and now it’s my turn. This was my first piece for such a high-profile site and I’ve been pleased with the generally positive response. More on that issue to come shortly.

    I don’t know if Tarbosaurus is only known from Mongolia. It’s been reported from the Amur and nanxiong, but that’s just scrap, and probably not the right age.

      Well the only definitive remains are from Mongolia. But even if this thing was ultimately from China or Russia, it would still have been an illegal collection or export so it doesn’t really affect the issue at hand, or the wider problems.
