An overview of Victorian Cretaceous research

It's finally here - Dr Steve Poropat et al have published the long promised review summarising what has been published so far on the Victorian Cretaceous.

The link to the Alcheringa article is here.
Look out for the mention of me on page 49!

New mammal jaw to be scanned tomorrow

Last November I found a jaw that bears an at least superficial resemblance to Corriebaatar marywaltersae whilst breaking rock in Lesley's driveway. Dr Tom Rich tells me that the jaw that I found will be scanned tomorrow at the Monash Synchrotron. Whilst this is very exciting, it sometimes takes week to render those images afterwards.
