Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Life (Mini Encyclopedias Series)
Jun 13, ISBN The most comprehensive pocket guide to these early creatures and the world they inhabited millions of years ago. For ease of reference, the main body of the book is divided into three sections: the Precambrian and Palaeozoic eras, the Mesozoic era, and the Cenozoic era. Each section is broken down into its geological time periods, and, within these, the species are organized according to habitat—whether they lived on land, in the water, or in the air. There are detailed profiles of dinosaurs and other ancestors of modern animals. Each entry combines a precise, jargon-free description with full-color artworks, skeletons, and replica models, annotated to pinpoint the key features of the species. The guide is authored by Hazel Richardson, a former research scientist, lecturer, and teacher.

Oct 08, ISBN From the origin of life, through the age of dinosaurs stalked by the terrifying Tyrannosaurus rex, to the earliest humans, this book tells the story of life on Earth. Dinosaurs may be the stars of the show, but the book is truly comprehensive, with fossil plants, invertebrates, amphibians, fish, birds, reptiles, mammals, and even early bacteria conjuring up an entire past world. To put all of these extinct species in context, the book explores geological time and the way life forms are classified. It also looks at how fossils preserve the story of evolution and how that story can be deciphered. The stunning visuals and authoritative text make Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Life a fascinating and revealing encyclopedia that will appeal to the whole family. DK publishes highly visual, photographic non-fiction for adults and children.
