                       ASPECTS OF SAUROPOD PALEOBIOLOGY


In this  volume (10) are  examined  diverse  aspects  of  sauropod paleobiology
with emphasis on trackways, and  a number of other related topics, with a total
of 28 papers coauthored by 39 authors.
First are present a series  of  twelve papers  on  sauropod tracksites  in  the
Jurassic and Cretaceous of Europe, North America, Australia and  Asia, followed
by  three papers  presenting  broad perspectives on  sauropod  ichnology, seven
papers on morphology  and feeding, three on tophonomy, and three on the various
aspects of the global distribution of tracks and skeletal remains.
