Scholarly Fun

Yunnanosaurus has been written about extensively. The most important papers are the papers that describe various aspects of the fragmentary prosauropod. There are fewer articles exploring aspects of functional morphology and other aspects of paleobiology, but we can ignore this lack for the most part as the descriptions more than keep us occupied in terms of pages for reading and pure content. Young's original description is online but can be difficult to access. In contrast Sekiya's description of a new species, Y. robustus, is easier to access and read online. Those interested in just the skull may, instead, find Barrett's description of the skull of Y. huangi more useful. Be aware that this paper is entirely a description of the skull and not a biomechanical analysis of the skull.
