Re: Books - Dinosaurs: The Science Behind the Stories



Jean-Michel & List:

If you want an easy to understand book on dinosaurs for the non-specialist,
check out the newly-released tome "Dinosaurs: The Science Behind the
Stories".  This new publication from the AGI is authored and edited by those
who talk among us on both on the DML and SVPList.  (Edited by Judith G.
Scotchmoor, Dale A. Springer, Brent H. Breithaupt, and Anthony R. Fiorillo )
"Using dinosaurs to illustrate the nature and methods of science, leading
paleontologists relate how we know what we know. Follow their fascinating
journey as they work through multiple lines of evidence that have led to new
hypotheses, discoveries, and understandings of the history of life on
 Earth."

It is certainly less pricey than most large books of this ilk.
