"Magnificent in its breadth and illustration." -- Booklist Dinosaurus was published in 2003 and went on to sell 15,000 in hardcover and more in paperback. Now 13 years have passed during which there have been dozens of discoveries. At the same price and fully revised, this edition of Dinosaurus is simply too exceptional a value to pass up. Many incredible discoveries made 2015 a banner year. For example: Yi qi ("ee chee," "strange wing"), the earliest known flying non-avian dinosaur The "Chicken from Hell," a bird-like beaked, clawed and feathered dinosaur that roamed the Dakotas Zhenyuanlong suni, a cousin of Velociraptor, suggests that this family has been inaccurately depicted. The new 5-foot-long dino more resembles a feathered poodle than the brute of Jurassic Park. "Superduck," at 5 tons and with a mate-attracting head crest it is thought to be a missing link between two other known duck-billed head-crested dinosaur species. Perhaps most exciting is that in 2016 the American Museum of Natural History opened a new exhibition featuring the astonishing, newly discovered 122-foot-long titanosaur, yet to be named. The plant-eating colossus is the largest dinosaur ever found -- it weighed around 77 tons--as much as 14 or 15 African elephants! No other life-form captures the imagination like dinosaurs. Organized by the major dinosaur families, Dinosaurus identifies 500 species. It describes in detail and stunning illustrations what they looked like, what they ate and how they fought, lived and died. The features include: Concise explanations of species' traits and habits Vivid full-color illustrations representing life among the dinosaurs Stunning color photographs of dinosaur discoveries Latin name, translation and pronunciation Height specifics and comparison to humans Diet and habitat Global distribution. Brimming with research from digs in North America, Mongolia, Europe, China and elsewhere, Dinosaurus is an encyclopedic and vividly illustrated reference for all ages.

This is a New York Public Library Outstanding Reference Book of 1998. While the inhabitants of the lost world have long held sway over our imaginations, in recent years dinosaur science has experienced an explosive growth. More books on dinosaurs have been published in the past decade than in all the previous 150 years since Richard Owen named these 'fearfully great lizards' (correctly, 'reptiles'), and dinosaur research continues to make headlines. Reporting the latest discoveries and research, this book is an exuberant celebration of dinosaurs and of our ongoing fascination with them. Here, in one volume, is the single, most-authoritative account of dinosaur paleontology for the general reader. So rapidly has the field expanded that no individual can hope to master all the aspects of dinosaur paleontology. For this book, the editors have brought together forty-six experts in subjects ranging from functional morphology and paleobiology to biogeography and systematics to present a thorough survey of the dinosaurs from the earliest discoveries through the contemporary controversies over their extinction. Where contention exists, as over the question of whether dinosaurs were warm-blooded or cold-blooded, the editors have let the experts agree to disagree. Throughout technical jargon is kept to a minimum, and there is also a glossary of less familiar terms. Readers will find a wealth of information on the study and classification of dinosaurs, on each of the dinosaur groups, and on dinosaur biology and evolution. Not the least among these riches are the more than 350 illustrations (Including 16 pages of color plates), many prepared especially for this volume. The volume concludes with a survey of dinosaurs in the media and a chronology of the history of dinosaur science. This is the single most authoritative account of dinosaur paleontology for the general public, all in one volume. Sumptuously illustrated, with up-to-the-minute information, it features: more than 350 illustrations, including 16 pages in full color; each chapter written by an expert in dinosaur studies; includes the latest dinosaur discoveries; new information on the warm-blooded/cold-blooded debate; new insights on the possibility of isolating dinosaur DNA; what dinosaurs ate and how we know about it; dinosaurs in the media; a time-line of the history of dinosaur science; and much, much more!

This reference work is the seventh supplement to Dinosaurs: The Encyclopedia (a 1998 American Library Association Outstanding Reference Book) and follows the intent and format of the encyclopedia and previous supplements. This supplement, as did its predecessors, offers primarily new information based upon the more recent research of vertebrate paleontologists; also, it corrects previously errors that may have crept into earlier volumes and emends outdated information. Among the many dramatic events discussed and updated are the first record of a dinosaur of any kind from Bulgaria, the first evidence of cannibalism in the genus Tyrannosaurus, the first evidence suggesting that some of the most avian dromaeosaurid theropods might have been venomous, the oldest known dinosaurian embryonic specimens recovered to date, and the first relatively complete dinosaur described from Korea. Supplemental volumes do not repeat information from earlier volumes, but build upon them:ISBN 978-0-7864-7222-2 Originial EncyclopediaISBN 978-0-7864-0591-6 Supplement 1ISBN 978-0-7864-1166-5 Supplement 2ISBN 978-0-7864-1518-2 Supplement 3ISBN 978-0-7864-2295-1 Supplement 4ISBN 978-0-7864-3241-7 Supplement 5ISBN 978-0-7864-4187-7 Supplement 6ISBN 978-1-4766-6548-1 Supplement 7
