The meat-eating donosaurs, or Theropoda, include some of the fiercest predators that ever lived. Some of the group's members survive to this day--as birds. The theropod/bird connection has been explored in several recent works, but this book presents seventeen chapters on a variety of othe rtopics. It is organized into three parts. Part 1 explores morphological details that are important for understanding therpod systematics. Part 2 focuses on specific regions of theropod anatomy & biomechanics. Part 3 examines various lines of evidence that reveal something about theropods as living creatures.
