Theropod Database info published and credited

I've done my fair share of complaining when material of mine is published without attribution, or ideas suspiciously similar to mine are published.  But there's the flipside as well- when authors credit me in their work, and this post is a thanks to them.

Most recently, Hendrickx and Mateus (2014b) in their description of Torvosaurus gurneyi not only credited me for photos and Dilophosaurus "breedorum" info, they even linked to my blog in the supplementary info.  Thank you so much.

Similarly, Hendrickx and Mateus (2014a) credited me in their theropod tooth paper.  I was very happy to see my hypothesis Richardoestesia is a dromaeosaurid supported by their analysis.

There's also Soto and Perea (2008) on ceratosaurid teeth, Martyniuk (2012) for a lot of things in his field guide as mentioned before, and Zanno and Makovicky (2013) on theropod herbivory.  Thanks everyone.

Coming up... Aves tests.
