Read full description of the books A Field Guide to Dinosaurs:This beautifully produced and illustrated volume is the result of sophisticated scientific research. However, it has been written in clear laymen s language for nonscientists who have serious interest in paleontology. Author Henry Gee provides naturalists notes on more than 50 different dinosaur species. His information is supplemented with dramatic, anatomically accurate full-color illustrations of each dinosaur. Material in this book is based on findings of dinosaur remains in North and South America, Africa, Asia, Europe, and Antarctica, and is divided according to time periods: Triassic, Jurassic, Early- and Mid-Cretaceous, and Late Cretaceous. At-a-glance icons convey key information about each animal, including size, taxonomy, geological period of origin, and geographical location of discovered bones. The book also presents general background information on the 180 million years of the dinosaur-dominated Mesozoic era, including details on Mesozoic plants and animals and the modern story of dinosaur discovery. More than 500
vivid illustrations are all in full color."
