Excuse me Mr. Nash, what is your current thoughts about ceratopsian feeding mechanics and ecology, especially in Laramidia?

@Anonymous... I think extreme niche partitioning - as advocated for in recent papers - is overstated. I basically think there was a lot of overlap in the diet of hadrosaurs, ceratopsids, and ankylosaurs. Hadrosaurs and ceratopsids eating tougher material on average than ankylosaurs. But everybody eating a lot of the same stuff. Interesting you asked as I intend to get back to Laramidia in future posts.
