    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.

    This volume completes Ken Carpenter's series on the major dinosaur types. As with his volumes on armored, carnivorous, sauropodomorph dinosaurs, the book collects original & nerw information reflecting the latest discoveries & research on these two groups of animals. The ornithopods include Iguanodon, one of the first dinosaurs ever discovered & analyzed, & perhaps the most common & best-documented group, the hadrosaurs or 'duckbilled dinosaurs.' The ceratopsians include 'Triceratops,' known for its distinctive three-horned skull & protective collar.

    The large quadrupedal herbivores knwon as sauropods roamed the planet from the Jurassic to the end of the Cretaceous. With the longest necks & tails of all the dinosaurs, some sauropods were 40 metersin length & weighed upwards of 100,000 kilograms. The popular image of these lumbering giants, placidly consuming ferns, has been greatly revised in recent years by new discoveries & new theories about behavior & physiology. This book presents twenty-one new studies of the sauropods.

    With its massive head, enormous jaws, and formidable teeth, Tyrannosaurus rex has long been the young person's favorite creepy carnivore of the Mesozoic zoo. Nor has T. rex been ignored by the scientific community, as this new collection amply demonstrates. Here scientists explore such questions as why T. rex had such puny forelimbs; how the dinosaur moved; what bone pathologies tell us about life in the Cretaceous; and whether T. rex was a predator, a scavenger, or both. There are reports on newly discovered skeletons, variation and sexual dimorphism, and how the big beasts chewed.
