Mesozoic Vertebrate Life free pdf This path breaking volume provides further evidence that we are in the midst of a new golden age' of dinosaur palaeontology. It presents important new research on the vertebrate life of the Mesozoic as reported by 45 of the leading workers in the field. Organised into sections on theropods, sauropods, ornithischians, dinosaurian fauna, paleopathologies, and ichnology, these original papers represent a broad cross section of current research. Studies of Charles Sternberg and dinosaurs in fiction conclude the book. Among the interesting findings presented here is a new theropod from Patagonia, a new sauropod and a new ornithodpod from Utah, and new studies of the phylogeny and taxonomy of the Tyrannosauridae. There is a new paper on the feathered dinosaurs from China and the origins of flight, accompanied by striking colour photographs- current speculations on the socioecology of Ceratopsid dinosaurs- and new studies of what can be inferred about dinosaur behavior from examining bone pathologies and trackways. Together, these 33 contributions form a vital portrait of cutting edge research on dinosaurs and other vertebrates from this endlessly fascinating period in the life of the past.
