Most widely held works by Spencer G Lucas
Chinese fossil vertebrates by Spencer G Lucas( )

10 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a comprehensive, chronologically ordered review of China's vertebrate fossil record. It also presents a history of vertebrate paleontological studies in China and an entrée to some important issues of systematics, evolutionary history, paleoecology, taphonomy, and functional anatomy best elucidated by China's fossils
Dinosaurs : the textbook by Spencer G Lucas( Book )

25 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in English and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Dinosaurs: The Textbook is a monument to our present understanding of these wonderful creatures. It is a book that will take the student on a journey through nearly every aspect of dinosaur biology, geology, and the history of their discovery. It is a text that presents facts together with current ideas, notions, and controversies. Dr. Lucas presents dinosaurs as successful, living creatures that were merely different in appearance from animals living today. Dr. Lucas has written a comprehensive book that is easily read and understood by students with little scientific background-a book that teaches students not only how to use scientific methods, but how to synthesize data to create their own ideas. In contrast with many dinosaur books from the past, Dr. Lucas, although indicating his own views, allows students the opportunity to think for themselves
Late Paleocene-early Eocene climatic and biotic events in the marine and terrestrial records( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The editors have brought together the finest scholars working today on the Paleocene-Eocene transition. Covering mammals, reptiles, invertebrates, and plants as well as the spectrum of marine biotas, the book documents both the well-established and the lesser-known turnovers, such as those of the calcareous nannoplankton and terrestrial mollusks. This volume is also notable for its integration of knowledge culled from a wide variety of disciplines, geographic settings, fossil groups, and paleoenvironments. With 21 contributions and more than 180 illustrations, this book will be of great value as a reference source for a wide spectrum of scientists, from marine geologists and oceanographers to paleontologists, paleoclimatologists, and stratigraphers
Advances in San Juan Basin paleontology( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Non-marine Permian biostratigraphy and biochronology( Book )

14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Permian period (251 to 299 Ma) encompasses nine ages (stages) arranged into three epochs (series). Most of the Permian marine timescale has been defined by global stratotype sections and points for the stage boundaries. This volume presents new data regarding the biostratigraphy and biochronology of the non-marine Permian and provides a basis for temporally ordering Permian geological and biotic history on land, and correlating that history to events in the marine realm
Bisti by David Scheinbaum( Book )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Triassic timescale( Book )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The temporal ordering of geological and biotic events during Triassic time is critical to the interpretation of some unique and pivotal events in Earth history. This temporal ordering is mostly based on the Triassic timescale, which has been developed and refined for nearly two centuries. This book reviews the state of the art of the Triassic timescale and includes comprehensive analyses of Triassic radio-isotopic ages, magnetostratigraphy, isotope-based and cyclostratigraphic correlations and timescale -relevant marine and non-marine biostratigraphy
Ancient creatures by Spencer G Lucas( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From Abelisaurus to Zigongosaurus, this new encyclopedia provides students, teachers, and general interest readers a comprehensive look on dinosaurs and ancient creatures that roamed the Earth more than 65 million years ago. Each entry includes key information either in chart or picture form that lists the name, pronunciation, and its meaning, as well as scientific classification, location of the fossil on a map of the world, estimated size in comparison to an average human, and the time period in which the animal existed. Extensive explanations of each animal follow, and include a detailed introduction, classification, anatomy, reproduction and population, intelligence, diet, behavior, habitat and other life forms, research, bibliography on relevant sources, websites for further research, and a vocabulary chart of pertinent words. Each comprehensive essay includes the latest information on each creature, including new discoveries in paleontology, and current scientific classifications and usage, such as terminology to describe a dinosaur's species or group, and also ways to determine a particular dinosaur's intelligence. Each dinosaur has a 3-D CGI picture representation of what the animal looked like in its habitat."--Publisher's website
