9780253011831: Dinosaurs and Other Reptiles from the Mesozoic of Mexico (Life of the Past)

This overview of dinosaur discoveries in Mexico synthesizes current information about the geography and environment of the region during the Mesozoic when it was the western margin of the ancient continent of Pangea. The book summarizes research on various groups, including turtles, lepidosauromorphs, plesiosaurs, crocodyliforms, pterosaurs, and last but not least, dinosaurs. In addition, chapters focus on trackways and other trace fossils and on K/P boundary (the Chicxulub crater, beneath the Gulf of Mexico, has been hypothesized as the site of the boloid impact that killed off the dinosaurs). Dinosaurs and Other Reptiles from the Mesozoic of Mexico is an up-to-date, informative volume on an area that has not been comprehensively described until now.

Review:

[This book] is richly illustrated with photographs and diagrams, and includes a color signature that attempts to re-create some of the animals discussed. . . . Recommended. (Choice)

Dinosaurs and Other Reptiles from the Mesozoic of Mexico is an up-to-date, informative volume on an area that has not been comprehensively described until now. (Birdbooker Report)

I would suggest Dinosaurs and Other Reptiles from the Mesozoic of Mexico to those who are
interested in Mesozoic paleontology. The layout, content, and chapter lengths flow well making this book easy to read and the material easy to absorb. (Priscum)
