The Dinosauria by David B Weishampel ( Book )
31 editions published between 1990 and 2007 in English and held by 1,966 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The first section of The Dinosauria begins with the origin of this great clade of archosaurs, followed by separate coverage of each major dinosaur taxon, including the Mesozoic radiation of birds. The second part of the volume navigates through broad areas of interest. Here we find comprehensive documentation of dinosaur distribution through time and space, discussion of the interface between geology and biology, and the paleoecological inferences that can be made through this link. This new edition will be the benchmark reference for everyone who needs authoritative information on dinosaurs."--BOOK JACKET
The evolution and extinction of the dinosaurs by David E Fastovsky ( Book )
19 editions published between 1006 and 2007 in English and Japanese and held by 1,690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Written for non-specialists, this detailed survey of dinosaur origins, diversity, and extinction is designed as a series of successive essays covering important and timely topics in dinosaur paleobiology, such as "warm-bloodedness," birds as living dinosaurs, the new, non-flying feathered dinosaurs, dinosaur functional morphology, and cladistic methods in systematics. Its explicitly phylogenetic approach to the group is that taken by dinosaur specialists. The book is not an edited compilation of the works of many individuals, but a unique, cohesive perspective on Dinosauria.---Publisher description
Transylvanian dinosaurs by David B Weishampel ( )
9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Dinosaurs of the East Coast by David B Weishampel ( Book )
7 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and Japanese and held by 696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The authors also show that dinosaur fossil-hunting has not only had a long history along the Atlantic coast but also is very much alive there today. Some dinosaur fossils have come from the bog iron and clay pits of Maryland and New Jersey, while others have been discovered in the riverbanks of North and South Carolina. Dinosaur footprint sites have been found from central Virginia to the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia
Dinosaurs : a concise natural history by David E Fastovsky ( Book )
16 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"From the authors of The Evolution and Extinction of the Dinosaurs comes an introduction to the study of dinosaurs for non-specialists designed to excite readers about science by using dinosaurs to illustrate and discuss geology, natural history and evolution. While focusing on dinosaurs it also uses them to convey other aspects of the natural sciences, including fundamental concepts in evolutionary biology, physiology, life history, and systematics. Considerable attention is devoted the nature of science itself: what it is, what it is not, and how science can be used to investigate particular kinds of questions. Dinosaurs is unique because it fills a gap between the glossy, fact-driven dinosaur books and the higher-level academic books, addressing the paleontology of dinosaurs exactly as professionals in the field do."--Jacket
