This text is intended for a one-quarter or one-semester introductory course on dinosaurs. It is a book that introduces dinosaur biology, geology, and the history of their discovery. It is a text that presents facts together with current ideas, notions, and controversies. Dr. Lucas presents dinosaurs as successful, living creatures that were merely different in appearance from animals living today. The book is designed to be understood by students with little scientific background as it teaches students not only how to use scientific methods, but how to synthesize data to create their own ideas.

Synopsis: Writer and movie director and producer Glut, who specializes in dinosaurs, continues to expand his 1997 reference on the extinct creatures by compiling new information based on recent research by paleontologists and corrected or emended old information. He intends to provide a handy reference tool for professional scientists and students, as well as less technical information of interest to the more casual dinosaur enthusiast. The main section describes the dinosaurian genera; others consider systematics, doubtful taxa that have been named but not fully described or delineated, and excluded genera.-Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc.

The discovery of dinosaurs and other large extinct saurians - a term under which the Victorians commonly lumped ichthyosaurs, plesiosaurs, pterosaurs and their kin - makes exciting reading and has caught the attention of palaeontologists, historians of science and the general public alike. The papers in this collection go beyond the familiar tales about famous fossil hunters and focus on relatively little-known episodes in the discovery and interpretation (from both a scientific and an artistic point of view) of dinosaurs and other inhabitants of the Mesozoic world. They cover a long time span, from the beginnings of modern scientific palaeontology in the 1700s to the present, and deal with many parts of the world, from the Yorkshire coast to Central India, from Bavaria to the Sahara. The characters in these stories include professional palaeontologists and geologists (some of them well-known, others quite obscure), explorers, amateur fossil collectors, and artists, linked together by their interest in Mesozoic creatures.
