The Dicynodonts were an important group of Permo-Triassic reptiles, and were the first really successful herbivorous tetrapods. They also provided the bulk of the prey species for the ecosystem in which the mammals evolved. This is a detailed study of the abundant fossil record for this group, and its importance in understanding not only their own evolution but that of the mammals as well.
