The ODP at SVP

Small Logo

Have you been wanting to get together with other ODPers? Is all of this internet stuff getting you down, and are you craving human contact with other paleontologists on the project? Well, worry no longer – because the Open Dinosaur Project (or at least the Andy, Mike, and Matt section of ODP, and a number of volunteers and other supporters) will be at the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology meetings in Bristol this week!

If you want to find us, we’ll be walking around with our nametags, of course. Come on up and introduce yourselves (especially if we don’t know you already, or haven’t met you in person). We’ll also be wearing our t-shirts on at least one day, so we’ll be hard to miss. And finally, if you are really, really having trouble locating us, stop by our poster presentations. Andy (poster #25, on a new theropod from Madagascar) and Matt & Mike (poster #56, on the whole sauropod neck posture thing) will be in Poster Session IV on Saturday, from 4:15-6:15 pm, so come on over and say hi!

Our posting will be a little sparse over the coming week (aside from an auto-post or two), and we may be slow to respond to emails. . .if so, it’s because we’re having so much fun in Bristol! See you next week.

    There are lots of open access dinosaur papers at

    Never mind about the second one, it isn’t very good — but the American Museum of Natural History one is cool

    I think that you would be really especially interested in Eocursor parvus (“A
    primitive ornithischian dinosaur from the Late Triassic of South Africa,
    and the early evolution and diversification of Ornithischia”) and Yinlong
    downsi (“A basal ceratopsian with transitional features from the Late Jurassic
    of western China”) — the papers I found for them indicated that the specimens
    were really good but they didn’t seem to give many of the measurements you wanted. Maybe you know one of the authors and they could help you get the measurements?
