    What is a dinosaur? How big was a baby dinosaur when it was born? Which dinosaur was the smartest? How do we know what color dinosaurs were? What is the biggest dinosaur? These and scores of other questions are answered clearly and concisely in this readable, fact-filled guide. Early in the book, Canadian paleontologist Philip J. Currie and his Danish colleague Eva B. Koppelhus dismiss the popular notion that all dinosaurs lived at the same time. Actually, various species dominated their environments over a span of some 160 million years.The authors also provide a wealth of information about where and how the first dinosaur fossils were discovered; the sizes, nesting habits, and eyesight of dinosaurs; how dinosaurs hunted; other animals related to dinosaurs; and many other aspects of this intriguing topic.

    At the start of the new millenium, scientists from around the world gathered to examine 'Bambiraptor,' a remarkable new specimen from Montana, & to discuss the origins of birds. From that gathering have emerged the studies on dinosaur-bird evolution published here. Though not all scientists have accepted the concept of birds being phylogenetically nested within the Dinosauria, the focus of research has been shifting to the evolution of feathers & flight. This book presents fifteen new pieces of research on this topic.

    The opening of an exhibit focused on "Jane," a beautifully preserved tyrannosaur collected by the Burpee Museum of Natural History, was the occasion for an international symposium on tyrannosaur paleobiology. This volume, drawn from the symposium, includes studies of the tyrannosaurids Chingkankousaurus fragilis and "Sir William" and the generic status of Nanotyrannus; theropod teeth, pedal proportions, brain size, and craniocervical function; soft tissue reconstruction, including that of "Jane"; paleopathology and tyrannosaurid claws; dating the "Jane" site; and tyrannosaur feeding and hunting strategies. Tyrannosaurid Paleobiology highlights the far ranging and vital state of current tyrannosaurid dinosaur research and discovery.
