About this book

A popular book on vertebrate ichnology, the study of trace fossils eg: the fossilised remains of tracks, traces, droppings etc left by dinosaurs.

'The first modern volume ever published in the subdiscipline was assembled, all papers expertly and multiply reviewed and edited, with unusual devotion and success, into a handsome book. Even its taxonomic rigors need not put off a general reader. Some history, more interpretation, many regional and individual site reports, and new techniques for recording and comparison are addressed, with a useful introduction and summary.' Scientific American 'This book is bound to appeal to dinosaur enthusiasts, but its value goes far beyond that. I recommend it not merely to dinosaur specialists but to all who have an interest in locomotor function and behaviour of any fossil lower retrapod.' Episodes
