Hi, L. J.

(Hmm, that looks like the authorship of a Chinese paper.)

The best way to get this kind of high-level overview of the anatomy of
several dinosaur groups is definitely the book _Dinosauria_, 2nd
ed. (which is _totally_ different from the first), published 2004,
edited by Weishampel et al.  It's easy to find on Amazon and
elsewhere, and IMHO stupidly cheap for for what it is (i.e. a huge,
chunky, close-to-definitive-as-possible tome).
