Evidence for this theory first arose from the fossil records of the Archaeopteryx and the Xiaotingia, two genera of theropod dinosaurs that displayed similar anatomical structures to birds.

I am not entirely sure which sections Liz Wyse was in charge of but there’s an extensive biographical section on palaeontologists and I think she might have written that. pocket book, no idea how content is like but I’d assume it’s not a species list nor a very visual book but an interesting read.

I’m not the first to note that it may well be directly responsible for the look of the Giganotosaurus that features in the Jurassic World: Dominion prologue. On completion of everything (early April 2001), we had a party somewhere close to the DK office (possibly in a DK office, I no longer remember), something that’s not at all typical. I had no involvement whatsoever with the construction of the several dinosaur models that feature in the book, the most famous of which is the green Giganotosaurus that graces the cover. Better known are the finds in southern England during the early 1820s by William Buckland (a clergyman) and Gideon Mantell (a physician), who described Megalosaurus and Iguanodon, respectively. The new home of the world-famous Tetrapod Zoology blog - Tet Zoo for short - now in its fourth iteration.

At some point the decision was made to actually bring him on and use his illustrations within the book, and in the final version he’s credited as ‘Palaeontological Artist’. It explains why the phylogenetic arrangement of the mammals follows the ‘Novacek tree’ (referring to the hypothesis of placental mammal evolution proposed by Mike Novacek; Novacek 1992).

The project being so huge, the aim was to complete a batch of related sections before moving to the next. Using casual language aimed at young people and non-scientists, it's a guide to all aspects of dinosaur science: how we figure out what dinosaurs looked like, how they lived, how they evolved, how they continue to live among us as birds, and much, much more.

I think it’s fair to say that my getting involved with the Encyclopedia in 2000/2001 really paid off in terms of future work. The following year Mantell published his “Notice on the Iguanodon, a Newly Discovered Fossil Reptile, from the Sandstone of Tilgate Forest, in Sussex,” on the basis of several teeth and some leg bones. Fossil of a dinosaur in the Lufengosaurus genus lying where it was unearthed in Yunnan province, China. Find out how these fascinating creatures lived, why they died out, and what their fossil traces tell us. Luis’s concept sketches were so good that they feature on the intro pages of the book’s main sections.

They'll discover where dinosaurs came from, how they lived and what happened to them as well as interesting facts like which was the tallest dinosaur and who laid the largest dinosaur egg.

They'll unearth fossils and learn where dinosaurs came from, how they lived, what happened to them, and so much more. At this point in my career, my other books* had been won via my connection with my Phd supervisor (Dr David Martill). DK was founded in London in 1974 and is now the world's leading illustrated reference publisher and part of Penguin Random House, formed on July 1, 2013. Even earlier (1800), large birdlike footprints had been noticed on sandstone slabs in Massachusetts.
