From Indiana University Press:
The Sauropodomorph Dinosaurs
Edited by Virginia Tidwell and Kenneth Carpenter
The large quadrupedal herbivores known as sauropods roamed the planet from
the Jurassic to the end of the Cretaceous. With the longest necks and tails
of all of the dinosaurs, some sauropods were 40 meters in lenght and
weighed upwards of 1000,000 kilograms. The popular image of these lumbering
giants, placidly consuming ferns, has been greatly revised in recent years
by new discoveries and new theories about behaviour and physiology. This
book presents 21 new studies of the sauropods. The volume is organized into
four parts. Part I looks at some sauropods old and new, Part II at juvenile
and adult specimens and ontogenetic variation within species. Part III
concerns morphology and biomechanics, while Part IV takes up issues of
Life of the Past, July 2005; 352 pages, 80 b & w photos, 160 figs.
