Fruitbat:

Thanks for your multiple posts over the past many months. The extensive online bibliography you've created really helps in doing research. For example, just today I was puzzling over the teeth turning up in a batch of Permian microfossils -- quick search through this particular post and I've got some possibly useful articles.
