From Indiana University Press:

Forthcoming!
THUNDER-LIZARDS
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 biogeography.

Life of the Past, July 2005; 352 pages, 80 b & w photos, 160 figs.
THULIC cloth $59.95.
