9780007222537: Dinosaurs (Collins Gem)

An identification guide to the most important and best known dinosaurs

Do you know the difference between a Coelophysis and a Diplodocus? How much larger than a human was a Spinosarus? Is it likely that the Parasaurolophus made a sound like a trombone? All these questions and many more are answered in Collins Gem Dinosaurs, a highly illustrated guide to the world's very wild life hundreds of millions of years ago.

A fully illustrated guide to the lost world of dinosaurs, the book provides descriptions of the most significant features and habits of these fascinating prehistoric reptiles, with profiles of nearly 70 dinosaurs which include in-depth looks at how dinosaurs lived, from keeping warm to moving about.

For each species information is given on

o What they ate
o How their size compares to ours
o How they behaved
o Where they lived

The book also includes explanations of what the dinosaur names mean and how to pronounce them.

About the Author:

Douglas Palmer is a freelance science writer who has written 10 books on prehistory and been a major contributor to another 6. They include works for both adults and children and range in subject matter from human evolution to dinosaurs. He teaches for Robinson College of Cambridge University on the Natural Science Tripos and is a lecturer for the University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education. He was formerly a senior lecturer in Earth Sciences at Trinity College, Dublin and spent two years as an exhibition co-ordinator at the National Museum of Wales. He presently lives with his wife in Cambridge.

From the Back Cover:

With 120 species described in detail, each illustrated with a full-colour, computer-generated image which brings it to life, Wild Guide Dinosaurs is the first ‘photographic’ identification guide to this fascinating group of creatures.

As well as descriptive text for each species and its related family, there is an ID Fact File which lists all the important information at a glance. A time line indicates the era in which the dinosaur lived and a scale guide also accompanies each one. Additional features such as eggs and habitat may also be illustrated.
