The perfect textbook for nonscience majors, this plainspoken volume methodically plots the biological and geological concepts of dinosaur science. It clarifies the evolution, phylogeny, and classification of the species while modeling the best approach for navigating new and existing research. Revised to reflect recent fossil discoveries and the current consensus on dinosaur science, the text is structured around major taxonomic groups, including Theropods, Sauropodomorphs, Ornithopods, Stegosaurs, and ankylosaurs, and concludes with updated chapters on the behavior and extinction of the species, their biological relationship to birds, and their representation (or misrepresentation) in art, literature, film, and other forms of popular culture.
