This "Who Was Who" of the prehistoric world is a fascinating reference book examining over 500 extinct species in detail, from the mighty dinosaurs and flying reptiles to armored fish, woolly mammoths, and our own prehistoric ancestors.
World renowned artists collaborated closely with paleontologists using strict scientific principles to illustrate each animal in full color to create a comprehensive catalogue of prehistoric vertebrate animals.
Among a vast array of species described and illustrated are such extraordinary creatures as:
-- Spiny sharks and ray-tinned fishes
-- Allosaurus and Tyrannosaurus
-- Brachiosauras and Diploducus
In addition to anatomical descriptions of each animal, there is also information regarding their habitats, behavior, and lifestyles. Furthermore, there are sections on the formation, discovery, exhumation, and reconstruction of fossils; the geologic time scale; and the nature and history of evolution. Assembled by a group of noted paleontologist, this is the most accurate presentation of the prehistoric world available.
