This "Who Was Who" of the prehistoric world is a fascinating reference book examining over 500 extinct species in detail, from the mighty dinosaurs and flying reptiles to armored fish, woolly mammoths, and our own prehistoric ancestors. World renowned artists collaborated closely with paleontologists using strict scientific principles to illustrate each animal in full color to create a comprehensive catalogue of prehistoric vertebrate animals. Among a vast array of species described and illustrated are such extraordinary creatures as: -- Spiny sharks and ray-tinned fishes -- Allosaurus and Tyrannosaurus -- Brachiosauras and Diploducus In addition to anatomical descriptions of each animal, there is also information regarding their habitats, behavior, and lifestyles. Furthermore, there are sections on the formation, discovery, exhumation, and reconstruction of fossils; the geologic time scale; and the nature and history of evolution. Assembled by a group of noted paleontologist, this is the most accurate presentation of the prehistoric world available.

An unmatched reference work distinguished by its erudition and beauty, this volume is an illustrated who's who of prehistoric life, a Baedeker of more than 500 million years of evolution on Earth. With entries for more than 600 species, each arranged in its evolutionary sequence, this book presents a panorama of enormous diversity, from predatory dinosaurs to primitive amphibians, from giant armored fish to woolly mammoths, sabertooth tigers and dire wolves. Each entry features a specially commissioned full color painting prepared according to the best research of today in close collaboration with world renowned paleontologists. The records of rocks--fossil bones, teeth, skin, hair and even footprints and nests--have been combined with knowledge of the anatomy and behavior of present day descendants to arrive at informed judgments about posture, color and other aspects of appearance. Lively and informative "biographies" of the creatures accompany these remarkable illustrations: how they moved, what they ate, where they ranged and the habitats and ecological niches they occupied. Comparisons are made wherever possible with familiar living animals, highlighting both the contrasts and similarities. Also included are articles on subjects such as the time scale of evolution, fossil formation and interpretation and convergent evolution. Truly a magnificent sourcebook, The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Creatures is both a triumph of scholarship and a work of art.

If any proof were needed that the study of prehis­toric life is more than a matter of "old bones," then this book provides it in ample measure. For here is a natural history of times past, featuring real crea­tures that lived, breathed, reproduced - then died forever. That they could be brought back to life in such convincing form is a credit to the painstaking scientific detective work of a team of paleontologists, writers and artists. In embarking on this project, the first decision was which animals to select. The mighty and ever­popular dinosaurs were obvious candidates for inclusion in the portrait gallery of past life, but to recreate a truly comprehensive collection of prehis­toric animals it was vital to add to them not only their reptile relatives but also representatives of all the other major groups of vertebrates, or animals with backbones. The result is a fascinating catalog of creatures, which includes the fishes of the past, many of them heavily armored with bony scales; the first amphibians, pioneers of life on land; the ancient masters of the air, in the form of flying rep­tiles and the first birds and bats; and the mammals that were our predecessors, from mammoths and sabertooths to the early apes and hominids. The reconstructions were then made through a combination of the knowledge of the paleontol­ogists and the skills of the artists. The resulting creatures may look fantastic, but they are by no means the creations of the imagination. All have been drawn and painted according to the strictest of scientific principles. In recreating each animal the artists have held faithfully to the fossil record -which sometimes contains not merely bones and teeth but also impressions of skin, hair, feathers and even footprints millions of years old. From study of fossils and of animal anatomy, plus detailed observations of the appearance and behavior of modern creatures, the artists have been able to "clothe" the skeleton of each animal, and make realistic reconstructions of physical features, posture and coloration. The results are surprising.
