By M. Taylor on March 9, 2006
Format: Hardcover
For palaeontologists with an interest in sauropods, this volume is simply and unequivocally indispensible. Matt Wedel's chapter on postcranial skeletal pneumaticity is a particular highlight, but most of the papers are very valuable. The contributions are on the whole more substantial than those in the recent Carpenter and Tidwell volume on the same subject, "Thunder Lizards", being mostly written by sauropod specialists.

Be careful, though! This is not a book for the casual dinosaur enthusiast: the chapters are academic papers that are heavy going for those without the necessary background.

I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in dinosaurs, fossils and evolution. This book gives you all the information you would ever want about the Sauropod dinosaurs. The price of this book on Amazon.com may seem high, but you will never find this book anywhere else at a better price.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great book intended for practicing paleontologists & advanced graduate students only. Too dense for the casual person interested in dinosaurs. Requires through knowledge of advanced cladistics, reptilian osteology and more.
