Dick Lund and I have new cochliodonts identified, have been constantly revising a cladogram of chondrichthyan relationships, last upgrade (presented during April meetings in London), follows my reexamination of Helodus) and analyses of jaw and cranial evolution. We're also revising a manuscript which proposes a model to explain the depositional features of the Bear Gulch and the quality of fossil preservation. You can access the Bear Gulch website at:
