The so-called Frankenstein dinosaur has been placed in a new dino family tree that tries to explain where the ornithischians fit in. The family tree needs some work to place everything known and identify possible new "missing links", but it appears promising on a few fronts. I guess we will watch over the next several years to see how it turns out.

I've been following this a little but vertebrate paleontology has always been sort of a black art to me. Traditionally, vertebrate paleontologists have always been biologists first and geologists second; a great deal - I'd guess around 80-90% - of vertebrate paleontology is done with museum specimens.
