Description / Dinosaurs: How They Lived and Evolved

Palaeontologists Darren Naish and Paul Barrett unravel the mysteries of the most fascinating creatures to rule the Earth - the dinosaurs. Uncover the explosion of research that kick-started the hunt for dinosaur fossils in the Victorian era, and learn about the modern discoveries still being made about life in the Mesozoic Period.

The reign of the dinosaurs lasted for more than 150 million years, during which time they overcame a host of potentially deadly climate changes. Surviving fluctuating sea levels, violent volcanic activity and searing temperatures, the dinosaur dynasty thrived and dominated the globe.

Using the latest scientific research, Naish and Barrett reveal new findings about dinosaur anatomy, behaviour, evolution and lifestyle. By demonstrating how dinosaurs survived the mass extinction of the Cretaceous Period, the authors also show how they continue to live alongside us today.

This book will leave you wondering at the marvels of evolution as you take another look at dinosaur's modern-day descendants - birds - the living relics of this incredible age.
