Discovering Dinosaurs Reviews


"Handsomely illustrated by 167 photos and maps, some in color, this volume takes us into a new world of dinosaurs. . . . The authors discuss the evolutionary relationships of dinosaurs and list a phylogenetic classification, which includes modern birds. A section of questions and answers ranging in topic from such physical characteristics as size, skin and teeth to preparation and assembly of specimens prepares us for the exhibits that follow. Here are descriptions of 41 dinosaurs, plus their tracks and eggs. The final section describes five museum expeditions."--"Publishers Weekly"
