Review Extras

These are annotated screen shots and figures to enhance and complement some of the print-only articles, to provide or illustrate my points that text alone may  not do sufficiently. The title links refer to the original articles. The full text is not reproduced here but a simple bibliographic citation is provided on the first screen of the linked page. You need to get the articles themselves from the library, the publisher, the publisher's Web-site or one of the full-text databases that you have access to.
