About this book

New Aspects of Mesozoic Biodiversity includes new insights of tetrapod evolution during Palaeozoic and Mesozoic eras, discovery of new vertebrate fossils including dinosaur from different continents and new information on palaeo-osteohistology and palaeobiogeography of the Indian plate during the end of the Mesozoic.

"This book, which is a spin-off of a session of an international conference held at the Indian Statistical Institute (Kolkata, India) in early 2008. [...] the chapters are well-organized and contain very detailed reference lists. [...] I can recommend it strongly to specialists in Late Palaeozoic-Mesozoic terrestrial vertebrates. Palaeontologists with wide interests, as well as earth scientists interested in the geology and plate tectonics of Gondwana will also enjoy reading this book."
- Dmitry A. Ruban, Geologos, Vol. 16 (3), September, 2010
