Wooster Geologists [2013-05-05 07:28:21]   recommend this post  (289 visits)

Well I’m back from my trip to the Tyrrell to do the research part of Project Daspletosaurus. I’ve had a great time and been extremely busy, but in addition, barely had any internet access or there would have been more blog posts. Now I [...]

It costs $18 to read a 1 page article about how Jean-Jacques Hublin is worried that "draconian access requirements are squandering the potential of imaging technology to advance human palaeontology".  I suppose I should feel better in that [...]
