The following articles from Alcheringa are some of the most popular that have been published in the past two years. Many have an Australasian focus, which we hope will be of interest to delegates at the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology's 2019 Annual Meeting in Brisbane, Australia.

Chief Editor: Dr Benjamin Kear, Museum of Evolution, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden.

All articles in the collection are free to read via this page until 30 November 2019. Bookmark now for easy access later.
