Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is a collection of wonderful data presented to readers in a systematic way. Although Dinosaur Provincial Park is well beyond AP or IB science courses, it will be of great interest to students of paleontology, graduate students, or those who want to do extended explorations of this Canadian site." —NSTA Recommends



"Currie and Koppelhus (vertebrate paleontologist and palynologist, respectively, Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology, Alberta) have edited a spectacular volume about what they aptly refer to as a spectacular ancient ecosystem.... The editors and contributors have done justice to the richness of this significant Late Cretaceous fossil locality, which has not only been recognized through its designation as a World Heritage Site, but also as one of the most vivid windows onto a past ecosystem anywhere, anytime.... Essential." —Choice



"... If you are looking for a creditable snapshot of Canadian life in the Late Cretaceous, it is hard to beat this volume." —Quarterly Review of Biology



"... this is an excellent title. It illustrates wonderfully how fusing together the geography, geology, biology, stratigraphy, taphonomy, ecology, and paleontology of a single area can generate an understanding of that area that is richer than the sum of the individual strands. Its price makes it easily accessible to the student, teacher, or researcher of ancient ecosystems. Dinosaur Provincial Park: A Spectacular Ancient Ecosystem Revealed would be a great addition to the book collection of any paleontologist." —Palaios

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is the first of its kind on the wonderfully rich dinosaur fossil deposit in Canada called Dinosaur Provincial Park. It is extremely well written by the scientists who spent decades working in the Park. The book has beautiful pictures and even comes with a companion CD ROM. If you love dinosaurs this one is a must!
