Su questo libro:
A complete look at the world of dinosaurs.
Don Lessem, renowned dinosaur expert, award-winning children's author, and advisor to the creators of Jurassic Park, offers a lively and informative, guide to dinosaurs.
Dinosaurs ruled the world for 150 million years. During that time, the world changed from a single warm supercontinent into the familiar continents that resemble modern Earth. The dinosaurs themselves also changed to adapt to these dramatic changes. This book is organized by the vast periods dominated by the dinosaurs: the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous. Fifty-four dinosaurs are featured against the backdrop of where they lived to give a better understanding of their distribution and evolution. Information tables for 25 dinosaurs provide details such as translation of name, group, size, diet, and a concise profile.
Brief overviews of the world before and after dinosaurs are included as well. The Dinosaur Atlas also discussed various theories for their mass extinction and why their descendents may still live in the form of birds. Featuring color maps, dramatic illustrations, and humorous sidebars, this book takes a unique, geographical approach to a timeless subject.
Don Lessem is the author of over 20 dinosaur books, is a columnist for Highlights for Children, and served as advisor to Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park and the Walt Disney Co. theme park ride and the Dinosaurs of Jurassic Park traveling exhibit.
John Bindon specializes in dinosaur illustration. His attention to detail and accuracy in dinosaur art has led him to work on many movies and television specials.
