Bibliography of Articles on Monell and its Progeny

This list of articles is an entirely unscientific selection and is simply intended as a beginning.  Please e-mail me identifying additional articles dealing with Monell and its progeny.  I will be happy to include almost any published article, comment or note that a visitor thinks would be appropriate as well as unpublished pieces.  Feel free to suggest your own work.  Please include the author's name, the citation, and (if available) a url link.  I intend to err on the side of inclusion.
