Triassic Literature Recap - 2010

It's time again to list all of the literature published on Triassic vertebrate paleontology in 2010.  Most of these papers were announced on this site; however, some slipped through the cracks.  Even with those inclusions this list is not entirely exhaustive given the sheer volume of work out there and the plethora of scientific journals. 

Temnospondyl studies cooled off a little in 2010 compared with past years, while synapsids and pterosaurs remained hot.  Permo-Triassic and end Triassic extinction interval studies continue on a rapid pace. In the world of dinosaurs we had a new herrerrasaur, Sanjuansaurus, and found out that Azendohsaurus was not.  I'm always thrilled when new aetosaur papers our published and in 2010 we had a new species of Stagonolepis, an armor histology study, two papers on Typothorax, and a revision of Lucasuchus hunti.  Amazingly there were actually two new papers this year dealing with phytosaurs, including a new taxon from the Petrified Forest.  The most prominent Triassic reference this year, however, was the new book, "Triassic Life on Land: The great transition" by Hans Sues and Nick Fraser.  I encourage all Triassophiles who have not yet picked up this book to do so.

In 2009 the most prolific Triassic author for vertebrate paleontology papers was Cesar Schultz with six papers.  This year it is Spencer Lucas with eight. Sterling Nesbitt is right behind with six.  Let's hope 2011 is as productive for Triassic research as the past years.
