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:

Wedel, M.J. 2006. Pneumaticity, neck length, and body size in sauropods. Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology 26(3):137A.

The email and webpage info at the top of the poster are now out of date. My personal webpage is now (link below), and my email address is

Almost everything in the poster was incorporated into the fourth chapter of my dissertation, which is freely available on arXiv but not formally published.

The Air Space Proportion (ASP) data used in the poster were published in Taylor and Wedel (2013).
