This reference work is the third supplement to Dinosaurs: The Encyclopedia (a 1998 American Library Association Outstanding Reference Book) and follows the intent and format of the encyclopedia and the first two supplements ("superb...the scope is phenomenal"--ARBA; "recommended"--Booklist). This continuation of what is now the standard encyclopedia provides up-to-date concepts, based on the latest original research of paleontologists, on such topics as the Mesozoic Era; new discoveries, ideas and studies; ectothermy versus endothermy; dinosaurs and birds; dinosaur extinctions; dinosaurian systematics; dinosaurian genera; nomina nuda and excluded genera; and an appendix discussing dinosaur tracks and eggs. Supplemental volumes do not repeat information from earlier volumes, but build upon them: ISBN 978-0-7864-7222-2 Originial Encyclopedia ISBN 978-0-7864-0591-6 Supplement 1 ISBN 978-0-7864-1166-5 Supplement 2 ISBN 978-0-7864-1518-2 Supplement 3 ISBN 978-0-7864-2295-1 Supplement 4 ISBN 978-0-7864-3241-7 Supplement 5 ISBN 978-0-7864-4187-7 Supplement 6 ISBN 978-1-4766-6548-1 Supplement 7

Review:

If you think the title Dinosaurs: the Encyclopedia has a movie-sequel ring, you're only partly mistaken; editor Donald F. Glut has already authored The Dinosaur Dictionary and The Complete Dinosaur Dictionary. But you'll find no T. rex running amok here; this is a dense and rigorously scientific tome meant for only the most dedicated dinosaur lover. Part 1 contains an excellent background history of scientific findings in this rapidly changing field. (Also here is a wonderful, paragraph-long sentence detailing possible causes of the dinosaurs' demise, including "brains too small" and "inability to mate, sexual frustration, suicide.") Once into the alphabetical listings, however, it's easy for the layman to get lost. If the description "articular facets of prezygapophyses much enlarged in anterior caudals" makes your eyes cross, perhaps this is not the reference for you. But if your amateur paleontologist shows signs of getting serious, you won't get much more detailed, thorough, or reliable information than that contained here. And there's always the glossary in back, wherein you'll find words such as "ginglymus" and "astragalus" defined in everyday English.

From the Inside Flap:

This reference work is the sixth supplement to Dinosaurs: The Encyclopedia (a 1998 American Library Association Outstanding Reference Book) and follows the intent and format of the encyclopedia and previous supplements. Among the many dramatic events discussed and updated are the discoveries of a basal titanosaur that may be the largest dinosaur yet found in China; the first large-bodied theropod from Pakistan; the largest Jurassic theropod tooth yet documented; and the first preserved integument and bonebed pertaining to the horned dinosaur Triceratops. This volume also includes lengthy sections on dinosaurian schematics and genera and updates the encyclopedia's list of excluded genera. One appendix provides a main-entry catalog of dinosaurian genera. Supplements do not repeat information from earlier volumes, but build upon them.
