Dinosaurs Rediscovered: The Scientific Revolution In Paleontology

Author(s): M. J. Benton
Over the years, the study of dinosaurs has changed from natural history to a true scientific discipline. New technologies have revealed secrets locked in the prehistoric bones--we can now work out the color of dinosaurs, their bite forces, top speeds, and even how they cared for their young. New fossils are the lifeblood of modern paleobiology of course, but it is the advances in technologies and methods that have allowed the revolution in the scope and confidence of the field. This book gathers all the latest paleontological evidence and takes us behind the scenes on the expeditions and in museum laboratories, tracing the transformation of dinosaur study from its roots in antiquated natural history to a highly technical, computational, and indisputably scientific field today.
