AMNH pubs go online

If you wanted to learn about the Philippine rodents : definitions of Tarsomys and Limnomys plus a preliminary assessment of phylogenetic patterns among native Philippine murines (Murinae, Muridae), or Taxonomy, distribution, and natural history of the genus Heteromys (Rodentia, Heteromyidae) in western Venezuela : with the description of a dwarf species from the Península de Paraguaná, you can just head over to the AMNH's new web site for their publications.

This is as God intends it. Scientific publications, especially large monographic works, deserve to be as accessible as humanly possible, not tied up behind paywalls. I sincerely hope this is the way of the future.
