About this book

Please note that this title was reissued in 2023 with a new cover and substantial updates and corrections to the text.

Discover the groundbreaking developments in dinosaur research from around the world with this state-of-the-art guide to dinosaur biology. Dinosaurs reveals the latest findings about their anatomy and behaviour, their evolution, diversity and lifestyle, and is lavishly illustrated with specimens from the Natural History Museum’s own collections, along with explanatory diagrams and charts and full-colour artistic reconstructions of dinosaur behaviour.

From the Victorian golden age of dinosaur discovery to the cutting edge of twenty-first-century fossil forensics, Dinosaurs unravels the mysteries of the most spectacular group of animals our planet has ever seen. Despite facing drastic climatic conditions including violent volcanic activity, searing temperatures and rising and plunging sea levels, the dinosaurs formed an evolutionary dynasty that ruled the Earth for more than 150 million years.

Media reviews

"With the authors being titanosaurs of the palaeontological community and brilliant communicators, this book is a must-have."
BBC Wildlife

"Finally, a modern, intelligent, trade book on dinosaurs for thoughtful readers [...] beautifully produced with full-color illustrations."
Quarterly Review of Biology

"This is an intelligent, beautifully illustrated and comprehensive guide to all things dinosaur-related [...] A detailed, in-depth read, Dinosaurs is better suited to the serious teenage or adult reader than the coffee table – though you don't need any specialist knowledge to enjoy the book."
The Economist
