From the Victorian golden age of dinosaur discovery to the cutting edge of twenty-first century fossil forensics Dinosaurs unravels the mysteries of the most spectacular group of animals our planet has ever seen. Despite facing drastic climatic conditions including violent volcanic activity, searing temperatures and rising and plunging sea levels, the dinosaurs formed an evolutionary dynasty that ruled the Earth for more than 150 million years. Darren Naish and Paul Barrett reveal the latest scientific findings about dinosaur anatomy, behaviour, and evolution. They also demonstrate how dinosaurs survived the great
extinction at the end of the Cretaceous Period and continued to evolve and thrive alongside us, existing today as an incredibly diverse array of birds that are the direct descendants of theropods. Dinosaurs is lavishly illustrated with specimens from the Natural History Museum's own collections, along with explanatory diagrams and charts and full-colour artistic reconstructions of dinosaur behaviour.

BBC Wildlife 'Finally, a modern, intelligent, trade book on dinosaurs for thoughtful readers... beautifully produced with full-color illustrations.' Quarterly Review of Biology 'This is an intelligent, beautifully illustrated and comprehensive guide to all things dinosaur-related… A detailed, in-depth read, Dinosaurs is better suited to the serious teenage or adult reader than the coffee table – though you don’t need any specialist knowledge to enjoy the book.' The Economist»
