Dr. Bonnan featured among paleontology experts in a Nature news article on sauropods

Just a short post to draw attention to a new article in Nature on the evolution of sauropod dinosaurs from small animals into giants by Fredric Heeren.  I feel privileged and honored to be among the many paleontologists featured in the article.  Among the many paleontologists cited in the article are close colleagues and friends Adam Yates and Matt Wedel.  There are nice interactive graphics as well.  It is a wonderful feeling as a scientist to have your research featured in such a prestigious scientific publication.

Thanks to Fredric Heeren for a good, informative article on the early evolution of these amazing giants.  As Paul Barrett best puts it in the article, the sauropodomorphs are “the unsung members of the dino community”.
