Book Description

This comprehensive volume covers a range of topics related to the history of animal life, on land or in water. Issues discussed include the impact of palaeontology on the general public and scientific concepts related to the study of dinosaur extinction; others address more specific topics such as vertebrate biochronology of the Jurassic-Cretaceous boundary. Accompanying these formidable research topics are more 'popular' aspects of palaeontology, examining the fascination that the public has had for dinosaurs over the last 150 years and the use of the word dinosaur in the English language.
