    DescriptionThis title profiles all known dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures, from the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous eras and beyond, including fish, mammals, reptiles, pterosaurs, plesiosaurs, ichthyosaurs, amphibians, crocodiles, turtles and birds. It includes more than 2000 illustrations, maps and anatomical diagrams, with every entry detailing appearance, activities, habitat and life cycle. This is a ground-breaking and expert study by a leading paleantologist and geologist. This seminal book covers every important dinosaur find. A comprehensive introduction explains the evolution of the dinosaurs, their adaptation, specialization, habitats and locations. The main section is an encyclopedia of 1000 dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures. Entries give size and shape, muscle and bone structure, plus explanations of how the animal moved, hunted and defended itself. Each main entry has a highly detailed and technically accurate illustration, and a map showing the sites where fossils have been found. With its unique combination of the latest expert research and visual reconstruction, this is an essential reference for school and home study.
