The Indexed Published Literature of Vertebrate Paleontology, 1509-1993
The BFV Online provides interactive access to the SVP's "Bibliography of Fossil Vertebrates" series. Using the BFV Online, users can specify a search criterion, and receive a formatted list of matching literature references. Results will appear in a new window (users that have activated pop-up blocking in their browser may need to adjust their settings for this to work properly). Queries are formed like taxon = 'Tyrannosaurus'. Detailed instructions are available for writing queries, including complex Boolean statements and the use of pattern-matching.
Note: Currently, the database covers the years 1509-1968 and 1981-1993, and has approximately 131,190 references.
