Dinosaur! – David Norman
Dinosaur! takes readers on a great tour of Mesozoic Earth, the world of Hadrosaurs, Apatosaurs, Stegosaurs, and the ferocious Tyrannosaurus Rex. A truly definitive account of the terrible lizards, Dinosaur! examines the natural history of all these captivating animals, what they ate, where they lived, and why they died.
Dinosaur! also explains the history of dinosaur study from the process of fossilization to the complexities of evolution and the theories that have informed the study of ancient Earth’s most spectacular beasts. Written by world-renowned dinosaur expert David Norman, Dinosaur! presents the most up to-date research and ideas in this fascinating area of palaeontology. Complementing the authoritatieve text are state-of-the-art computer graphics and full colour original illustrations prepared by distinguished palaeo-artists.
In lavish and evocative text and pictures, Dinosaur! brings a 165 million-year-old world vividly to life, offering readers a unique look, not only at the diversity of dinosaurs that roamed the Earth, but also the natural history, biology and controversy that surround these marvellous creatures.
