9780470656587: Dinosaur Paleobiology

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.

Books in the series provide a summary of the current state of knowledge, a trusted route into the primary literature, and will act as pointers for future directions for research. As well as volumes on individual groups, the series will also deal with topics that have a cross-cutting relevance, such as the evolution of significant ecosystems, particular key times and events in the history of life, climate change, and the application of a new techniques such as molecular palaeontology.

The books are written by leading international experts and will be pitched at a level suitable for advanced undergraduates, postgraduates, and researchers in both the paleontological and biological sciences.

About the Author:

Stephen Brusatte is a vertebrate paleontologist and PhD student at Columbia University and the American Museum of Natural History. His research focuses on the anatomy, systematics, and evolution of fossil vertebrates, especially theropod dinosaurs. He is particularly interested in the origin of major groups such as dinosaurs, birds, and mammals. Steve is the author of over 40 research papers and three books, and his work has been profiled in the New York Times, on BBC Television and NPR, and in many other press outlets.

Review:

“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)
