Publications

Most articles are posted as pdfs, for the convenience of people making personal copies for their own use.  If you wish copies of articles for commercial purposes or for distribution to a class, please write the publishers.  For a selection of papers published prior to 2000, please see the link at the bottom of the page. A pdf also posted there contains a then-complete bibliography.   I may be able to provide you with copies of other articles I have written that are not posted here -- write me at bpattersonfieldmuseum.org.   In the Press
