Abstract:

"Feathered Dinosaurs: The Origin of Birds dramatically brings to life all the known groups of dinosaurs that bore feathers. Peter Schouten, one of the world's most acclaimed natural history artists, has produced a series of 80 imaginative full-color life paintings of this fascinating extinct group by matching their peculiar physical traits with those of living creatures. These are the most accurate visual representations possible, based on existing evidence of these dinosaurs.".

"In this book, palaeontologist and popular science author John Long unravels the mysteries of the origin of birds and the evolution of flight. He details the transition from small, feathered dinosaur to primitive flying bird - a shift that is now widely accepted as an anatomically seamless evolutionary event."--BOOK JACKET.
