Here’s a no-frills guide to the key papers I’ve authored or co-authored. See my CV for several additional papers, field guides, comments-and-replies, and other articles that I’ve written or been a contributor to. But the following list reflects what I consider to be my primary scientific contributions. Please contact me at hayman for an electronic preprints.
