<p>The poster I presented at the 2006 annual meeting of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology. The blue 'updated' boxes in the abstract represent changes I made between submitting the abstract and presenting the poster. The abstract appeared as:</p> <p>Wedel, M.J. 2006. Pneumaticity, neck length, and body size in sauropods. Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology 26(3):137A.</p> <p>The email and webpage info at the top of the poster are now out of date. My personal webpage is now http://sauroposeidon.wordpress.com/ (link below), and my email address is mathew.wedel@gmail.com.</p> <p>Almost everything in the poster was incorporated into the fourth chapter of my dissertation, which is freely available on arXiv but not formally published.</p> <p>Wedel, M.J. 2007. Postcranial pneumaticity in dinosaurs and the origin of the avian lung. PhD dissertation, UC Berkeley. arXiv:1302.3267 [q-bio.TO]</p> <p>The Air Space Proportion (ASP) data used in the poster were published in Taylor and Wedel (2013).</p> <p>Taylor, M.P., and Wedel, M.J. 2013.
