The giant panda: a morphological study of evolutionary mechanisms

By way of GrrlScientist, I notice that Fieldiana (the journal of the Field Museum is now freely available online. For us here at the Panda’s Thumb, it means that DD Davis’ classic study “The giant panda: a morphological study of evolutionary mechanisms” of 1964 can now be enjoyed by one and all. Over three hundred pages, detailing everything you’d want to know about giant panda morphology. Steve Steve urges you all to check it out!

This is so cool! When I lived in Chigagoland I didn’t visit the Field Museum nearly enough thinking, well, I can go down there anytime. Then, I had to move to Texas, the land of the deliberately ignorant, and, now, I wish I had gone more often. Pandas, sliced up humans, all of it how wonderful!

Fieldiana has some wonderful material. I work in the primate collections periodically, and they are marvelous – significant and very well curated. The folks in Chicago should appreciate how lucky they are to have such a great museum at hand. Jack Fooden’s piece on Macaca fascicularis in Fieldiana is a meticulous and excellent piece of work.
