“Anyone serious about learning details of dinosaur biology would do no better than to read this book. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through researchers/faculty; general readers.” (Choice, 1 November 2012)
“It is up-to-date, well-researched and the topics are perceptively argued or discussed, and I would unhesitatingly recommend it, as ‘start-up’ reading, to my own undergraduates and research students.” (Geological Magazine, 2012)
"This is a reference work of wide-ranging technical expertise that reads like a good piece of science journalism. Forgive the cliché but I couldnt put it down. .....an excellent reference and a quick way to get up to speed on the fascinating and fast-evolving world of dinosaur research."
—J. Bret Bennington Priscum Vol 21, Issue1 (Winter 2014)
From the Back Cover
The study of dinosaurs has been experiencing a remarkable renaissance over the past few decades. Scientific understanding of dinosaur anatomy, biology, and evolution has advanced to such a degree that paleontologists often know more about 100-million-year-old dinosaurs than many species of living organisms. This book provides a contemporary review of dinosaur science intended for students, researchers, and dinosaur enthusiasts. It reviews the latest knowledge on dinosaur anatomy and phylogeny, how dinosaurs functioned as living animals, and the grand narrative of dinosaur evolution across the Mesozoic. A particular focus is on the fossil evidence and explicit methods that allow paleontologists to study dinosaurs in rigorous detail. Scientific knowledge of dinosaur biology and evolution is shifting fast, and this book aims to summarize current understanding of dinosaur science in a technical, but accessible, style, supplemented with vivid photographs and illustrations.
The Topics in Paleobiology Series is published in collaboration with the Palaeontological Association, and is edited by Professor Mike Benton, University of Bristol.
