Libro sobre la Formacion Morrison

Se acaba de publica un nuevo libro sobre la Formación Morrison donde se hace un repaso de la estratigrafía, sedimentología, paleontología de su parte superior. Es un libro muy interesante y que no puede faltar en la biblioteca de cualquier interesado en los dinosaurios del Jurásico. Os adjuntamos la información sobre donde comprarlo y el índice.

The New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science is happy to report that another Bulletin is available for sale. NMMNH Bulletin 36 "Paleontology and Geology of the Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation" is a 249-page volume with wide coverage that should be of great value to all Morrison and other Mesozoic workers. The volume includes: geological investigations of several areas; taphonomic studies of several localities, including the Fruita Paleo Area (finally) and Cleveland-Loyd Quarry; a report on possibly the largest dinosaur ever; comparisons to other faunas; plants, tracks, and small vertebrates; and an updated faunal and floral list of taxa from the Morrison Bulletin 36 sells for $30 from the NMMNH Natureworks Store. To order: contact Rhea Alper at the NMMNH Store, at
or 505-841-2803
