Abstract:

"Home to the 2,500-km Fossil Trail, the Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum, the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology, and Dinosaur Provincial Park-a UNESCO World Heritage site-the Alberta Badlands have unearthed more species of dinosaurs than anywhere else in the world and hundreds of thousands of tourists visit the fossil beds annually. Despite being star attractions in museums around the world, the dinosaurs of Alberta have never before been the subject of a book that explores their unique interrelationships and scientific importance, while still being accessible to young readers. In Dinosaurs of the Alberta Badlands, paleontologist Dr. Persons travels back in time 76 million years to the Late Cretaceous period, when pterosaurs soared through the skies, prehistoric sea monsters as long as school buses swam in Alberta's shallow sea, and anklyosaurs and cerotopsians roamed the swamps and flood plains that would eventually become the badlands of today. Meet the terrifying Albertosaurus, a relative of Tyrannosaurus, and the plant-eating, duck-billed Edmontosaurus. Bet on the winner of a race between a tyrannosaur and a hadrosaur-who's quick and deadly, who's slow and steady? Explore some of Alberta's most notable dig sites, including the Danek Bonebed, and learn how fossils form and what paleontologists do when they find them. And discover dinosaurs' avian legacy and Alberta's official provincial "dinosaur"--The great horned owl. Featuring paleoart by Julius Csotonyi, over seventy-five photos and illustrations, and profiles of leading paleontologists, Dinosaurs of the Alberta Badlands showcases Alberta's prehistoric beasts, not as participants in a parade of isolated monsters, but as animals adapted to be part of a long-lost ecosystem."--
