Decays of B mesons into final states containing baryons are much less understood than decays into mesons, and are useful for shedding light on baryon-production mechanisms and intermediate states. We report the results of recent and new studies of such decays, including B- -->Sigma_c++ pbar pi- pi-, B0bar -->Lambda_c+ pbar p pbar, and B --> D(*) p pbar (npi). Both the total decay rates and the resonant structure are reported.
