Gallimimus news

The first article I've found for Tuesday is pretty much a summation of what we know about Gallimimus. ( The second article ( is head written by Halszka Osmolska and presents the new species Gallimimus. The article is fairly long at 93 pages, but is a must read if you're interested in Gallimimus.

Osmolska is co-editor of the tome-like book The Dinosauria along with Peter Dodson and David Weishampel. She is one of the most famous Polish paleontologists to have lived and described many animals from the sands of the Gobi desert. Sadly, she died in 2008 at the age of 77, but her work on extinct animals, including the highly descriptive article above, has enhanced our world of dinosaurs immensely.
