About this book

During the Triassic, the Earth took its first steps toward the creation of modern terrestrial ecosystems. This exciting period is brought vividly to life in the words of palaeontologist Nicholas Fraser and the consummate artistry of Douglas Henderson. Together they have created a book in which the riches of Triassic life are presented with clarity, scientific accuracy, and imaginative recreation.

Nicholas Fraser is Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology and Director of Research and Collections at the Virginia Museum of Natural History. He has published widely on Triassic tetrapods, and is interested in environmental changes that were instrumental in the rise of the dinosaurs.

Douglas Henderson is an artist who combines his interest in dinosaurs and Earth history with traditional natural history illustration.

Media reviews

The "terrible reptiles" commonly associated with Jurassic times actually first appeared in the preceding Triassic period that lasted from 251 to 199 million years ago. The 50 million years of evolutionary innoviation in the Triassic do not normally receive the publicity they deserve, but in this book, with the aid of Douglas Henderson's brilliant illustrations, Nick Fraser reminds us that life in that period was full of novelties such as mammals, crocodiles and frogs, plus many now-extinct groups including the flying pterosaurs and, of course, the dinosaurs."--New Scientist, 4 November 2006
