Triassic Literature Recap - 2009

It is that time again, a list of all of the Triassic paleontological (and some geological) research that was published in 2009. A lot of this was mentioned here in previous posts and I cannot say for sure that the list is exhaustive as I've surely missed a few.

Some of you may remember that the most prolific Triassic author for 2008 was Mike Benton. For 2009 it is Cesar Schultz who is on six publications.
