new book on italian dinosaurs
just for your knowledge (I am not among the authors, so it is not
self promotion) that a high level divulgation book (this is the aim of the
authors) on all the so far discovered italian dinosaurs has been published.
It should be already available, surely it'll be around Xmas. In many
cases not only specimens but also localities, geology, paleoenvironments
etc. are described.
The preface is by Phil Currie.
Scypionyx, The saltriosaur (unnamed theropod from Saltrio) , the adrosaur
from Trieste are featured, along with dinosaur trackways and other non
dinosaurian stuff, like the shastasaurid ichthyosaur Besanosaurus, the
pterosaur Eudimorphodon, and Tanystropheus.
It is on the cheap side (29,000 it lire, about 15 US dollars), paperback
with BW photos & illustrations. Good photos and very nice artwork but,
**you are warned**, it is written in Italian :-/
For those who may be interested:
