Although herbivory probably first appeared over 300 million years ago, it only became established as a common feeding strategy during Late Permian times. Subsequently, herbivory evolved in numerous lineages of terrestrial vertebrates, and the acquisition of this mode of feeding was frequently associated with considerable evolutionary diversification in those lineages. This book represents a comprehensive overview of the evolution of herbivory in land-dwelling amniote tetrapods in recent years. In Evolution of Herbivory in Terrestrial Vertebrates, leading experts review the evolutionary history and structural adaptations required for feeding on plants in the major groups of land-dwelling vertebrates, especially dinosaurs and ungulate mammals. As such, this volume will be the definitive reference source on this topic for evolutionary biologists and vertebrate paleontologists.

Book Description:

Evolution of Herbivory in Terrestrial Vertebrates represents the first comprehensive overview of how plant-eating evolved in land-dwelling vertebrates. It gives reviews of both the structural adaptations necessary for a herbivorous way of life, and the evolutionary history of feeding on plants in major groups of terrestrial mammals, especially dinosaurs and ungulate mammals. Essentially, it also reinvestigates the evidence for and against herbivory or omnivory in these groups, making this the definitive reference work in this area for paleontologists and evolutionary biologists.

Review:

"Provocative" Priscum

"It is impossible to do justice here to the richness of information and ideas presented in this book...Sues' book is handsomely produced, with attractive, informative illustrations. I found the cover art, which depicts two radically different synapsid herbivores, particularly appealing." Historical Biology

"This is a good book...For many mammalogists, this book will provide a concise review of this area of mammalian (as well dinosaurian) evolution." Journal of Mammalogy
