Feedback on the Dinosaur by Lucas
I received a copy of the book Dinosaurs by Spenser G. Lucas. There
is a slight possibility that I might use it as a text for a paleontology
course next semester. I like the layout and it looks like a good book,
but can any of you give me more specifics on its strengths and
weaknesses. Vertebrate paleontology is a bit out of my area so I don't
feel that good in judging.
By the way not using a dinosaur book for a text is because with
covering invertebrates somewhat responsibly (I use Clarkson.) and some
microfossils leaves me with little room to add another major topic.
Besides as a Carboniferous palynologist, I am stretched as much as I
should be. However, I would like to introduce the class a little to
vertebrates and will at least use this text as a source (or some others
that you may suggest).
