Today was the release of my first new paleontological paper since 2004, coauthored with Drew Gentry (lead author) and Jun Ebersole, based, in part, on a fossil turtle I collected in 2001 and 2002: "Asmodochelys parhami, a new fossil marine turtle from the Campanian Demopolis Chalk and the stratigraphic congruence of competing marine turtle phylogenies."
