About this book

Presents an analysis of Sauropoda which includes many of the most familiar dinosaurs, such as Apatosaurus (formerly 'Brontosaurus'), Diplodocus and Brachiosaurus (the latter finding fame in the Jurassic Park movies).

The book advances our knowledge of sauropod phylogeny, biomechanics, physiology and ecology and offers insights into the limits of life at large body size. It is an active and constructive debate in dinosaur studies that will serve as a benchmark for future work on prosauropods and basal sauropods.
