Dinosaurs from China introduces the history of dinosaur studies in China, then chronicles, in geological sequence and by geographical area, all the discoveries made by Chinese palaeontologists, including the animals that were contemporaries of these reptiles in the Mesozoic Era. The geological localities and formations containing dinosaur fossils are illustrated in detail. This is one of the most comprehensive and best illustrated books about Chinese dinosaurs available. Many of the 180 photographs and lifelike reconstructions are published here for the first time, and the book will appeal to geologists, palaeontologists, biologists and indeed anyone interested in the history and evolution of these fascinating animals.
