Jobarian Literature

There are a number of papers on Jobaria that are worth mentioning today. The first is the description of Jobaria. There are other papers as well, though not as many as one might think considering that Jobaria is a very unique and interesting sauropod. There are abstracts from The European Association of Vertebrate Paleontologists conference in 2012 that discuss where and when sauropods fit into the phylogenetic tree together. These abstracts do not specifically discuss Jobaria by itself, but the context of their phylogeny is important in discussing them. Most importantly, for the most current description of Jobaria and its position within its ecosystem, there is a paper on African sauropod diversity that is well worth reading. I would encourage people to read at least this paper out of the three because its got the most current and relevant science on the dinosaur.
