Dissertation Errata

The Evolution and Functional Morphology of Sauropod Dinosaur Locomotion
Unpublished Ph.D. Dissertation by Matthew F. Bonnan

In any body of work, errors are bound to creep in.  Over time, I have noticed some errors in my dissertation that I would like to correct here for anyone using it as a resource.  Please contact me if you have found any additional errors in my dissertation that should be corrected: matt.bonnan@gmail.com

Appendix II Citation Omissions
In Appendix II where the Alligator mississippiensis musculature is discussed, there was an error of omission: during my dissections, I consulted the following sources which should have been cited in this appendix but were inadvertently omitted:

Chiasson, RB. 1962. Laboratory Anatomy of the Alligator. Dubuque, IA: Wm. C. Brown Company Publishers.
Gatesy SM. 1997. An electromyographic analysis of hindlimb function in Alligator during terrestrial locomotion. J Morph 234:197- 212.
Romer, AS. 1956. Osteology of the Reptiles. Chicago: University of Chicago Press.

I should note that my dissertation was completed and published in 2001 – had Meers’s excellent paper on the alligator forelimb been available at that time, I would have consulted that as well:

Meers MB. 2003. Crocodylian forelimb musculature and its relevance to Archosauria. Anat Rec A 274:891-916.
