Publications
and Reports

The Holotypic Occlupanid Research Group has made great strides in recent years in the scientific advancement and public awareness of occlupanids. A collection of notable publications and reports are collected here:

In 2011 Dr. Bruce Ragsdale collaborated with HORG and other physicians to publish the first internationally recognized paper on occlupanids in a peer-reviewed medical journal:

Plastic bag clip discovered in partial colectomy accompanying proposal for phylogenic plastic bag clip classification

The meticulously researched paper goes beyond simply warning of the dangers of occlupanophagy; it makes a strong case for the recognition of occlupanid phylogeny by the greater scientific and medical community. An outstanding achievement!

National Public Radio featured ‘occlupanid’ as a mystery vocabulary word on the radio programme “Says You!” in 2010.
