Críticas:

'... the most comprehensive and useful text on dinosaurs on the market. It is both authoritative and whimsical, providing the student with a great background on dinosaurs and on the sciences needed to understand them. It is fun to read and [has] great illustrations too.' Kevin Padian, Museum of Paleontology, University of California, Berkeley

Review of the first edition: 'I am excited to see that the authors have selected not to overwhelm the student with detail.' Mark Oiumette, Hardin-Simmons University

Review of the first edition: 'Does an excellent job of explaining cladistics.' Bill Zinsmeister, Purdue University

Review of the first edition: 'Well written ... the authors' sense of humor makes it enjoyable to read; it summarizes most of the important topics in dinosaur paleontology using current information.' Carol Waddell-Sheets, Canisius College

Review of the first edition: 'This is an outstanding contribution for anyone teaching a course involving dinosaurs ... it is reasonably short and very much up to date.' Sherwood Wise, Florida State University

Review of the first edition: 'It's a nice length - subjects are discussed with the appropriate amount of depth and level of coverage. The writing style and tone is engaging and I like the incorporation of phylogeny.' David Varricchio, Montana State University

Review of the first edition: 'Very up-to-date information ... superior illustration.' John Taylor, Indiana University of Pennsylvania

'It's the best fit for my course of any book out there because it's focused less on the dinosaurs themselves and more on how dinosaurs illustrate important lessons in the history of life ... I'm definitely going to adopt it for my course.' J. Bret Bennington, Hofstra University

'Dinosaurs remain a 'hot' topic ... To explore their past world, one needs to have a very good guide. With the publication of the book by Fastovsky and Weishampel, the latter is now available ... demonstrates an outstanding degree of comprehensity ... an outstanding synthesis of the modern knowledge on dinosaurs.' Dmitry Ruban, The German Geological/Palaeontological Journal

'It is an admirable work, something unlike I have seen in other texts in the field. The 240 page lexicon is elegant and freshly instructive. I find this text compact, self-contained and interesting to read.' Gibson Batch, Rheology Bulletin

Reseña del editor:

Updated with the material that instructors want, Dinosaurs continues to make science exciting and understandable to non-science majors through its narrative of scientific concepts rather than endless facts. It now contains new material on pterosaurs, an expanded section on the evolution of the dinosaurs and new photographs to help students engage with geology, natural history and evolution. The authors ground the text in the language of modern evolutionary biology, phylogenetic systematics, and teach students to examine the paleontology of dinosaurs exactly as the professionals in the field do using these methods to reconstruct dinosaur relationships. Beautifully illustrated, lively and engaging, this edition continues to encourage students to ask questions and assess data critically, enabling them to think like a scientist.
