About this book

Presents a beautifully illustrated guide to the fossil remains of dinosaurs and other vertebrates from the ancient Southern Hemisphere.

In Wildlife of Gondwana ...you'll find riches indeed for all natural history enthusiasts. This 2-billion-year history of the biota of Australasia and associated southern continents is beautifully illustrated. But it's much more than a picture book: the story is set within the geological growth and breakup of the great southern supercontinent of Gondwana.--New Scientist, 20 May, 2000
