Combination Complete

Thescelosaurus

Thescelosaurus life restoration

A huge thank you to all of the volunteers who helped to organize multiple entries for individual specimens into a single combined entry. This was an unglamorous task, but an important one for subsequent analysis. We got 243 combined specimen entries in under two weeks’ time. In no particular order (other than alphabetically by first name), Doug Henning, Jr., Henrique Niza, Jay Fitzsimmons, John Dziak, Rob Taylor, and William Banks Miller did a fantastic job heading up the effort. As a result, we now have 1,898 individual verified lines of data (including combined entries). That’s pretty darned amazing!

Also, kudos to all of the individuals who have been participating in the discussion on the blog over the past weeks. This sort of environment is exactly what we (Matt, Mike, and I) wanted to foster when we started the project. The sheer breadth and depth of expertise among the contributors is pretty impressive! And for those who don’t feel like “experts”, it’s certainly OK to chime in. Everyone’s comments are welcomed. Anyone can do science.

    I’m more than glad to help. But I’m certain all those persons mentioned worked far more than me. :)
