These are a few of the pdf files (and a few Microsoft Word documents) that I've accumulated in my web browsing.

MOST of these are hyperlinked to their source.


If you want one that is not hyperlinked or if the link isn't working, e-mail me at joegallo1954@gmail.com and I'll be happy to send it to you.

 

Please note that this list will be updated continuously as I find more available resources. All of these files are freely available on the Internet so there should be no copyright issues.

I don''t know who informed you that the Astre piece contains plates(info prolly from the site paleoglot itself ,I'm guessing) ,but that information is wrong.

It doesn't

Samonds*:

samondszalmoumammaljvp039.029.pdf

*The more direct BIO*ne JVP links that used to be available are gone,of course

Joe,thanks for the Lanyon piece.

Must read/recommended

doushantuo...

 

You must have forgotten your reading glasses again. :ighappy: In the link to the Astre piece I posted, I specifically added that it does NOT contain plates.  Many of the Paleoglot translations omitted the plates.

 

I fixed the link to the Samonds piece...thanks!
