Writing It Down

Conybeare and other early Plesiosaurus scholars filled the libraries and scholarly journals, or annals of museums, with copious amounts of articles. Conybeare himself wrote a number of articles describing Plesiosaurus and comparing it to contemporary marine reptiles. Richard Owen also wrote a number of articles on marine reptiles, including Plesiosaurus, that are well known. Many of the earliest accounts come from England, in fact. Plesiosaurus, though, is a worldly reptile and has been discovered in areas as diverse as Argentina, Mexico, Belgium, and Germany. The papers here are more than enough to get a fairly good history of Plesiosaurus and a lot of quality descriptions of the genus.
