Tyrannosaurid Paleobiology (Life of the Past) Reviews
Tyrannosaurid Paleobiology is a great collection of scientific presentations at a conference (or more appropriately, conferences) on current knowledge (as of 2005 or so) of the biology and behavior of tyrannosaurus rex and it's related species. The articles are short, but very interesting, covering a wide-ranging series of topics, such as diseases, hunting behavior, tooth mechanics, and bone structure and musculature, to name a few. Illustrations are pertinent, with plenty of charts, images, and graphs to provide a visual connection to the data presented in each paper. In addition, each presentation comes with a detailed list of related articles and papers, for those who wish to explore the subject(s) in more depth.
Useful accumulation of current tyrannosaurid research.
Great book for hardcore enthusiasts.
Great papers. Technical. Good mix and better than the other IUP book on Tyrannosaurus.
Has become one of my treasured books. Thanks!
Fast service. loved it.
Tyrannosaurid Paleobiology is a long overdue volume detailing the Tyrannosaur family of dinosaurs,the largest and most powerful predators to ever inhabit our planet. Tyrannosaurus rex stretched up to 45ft long and tipped the scales at 14,000lbs for a large adult.
