The Simon & Schuster Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Creatures: A Visual Whos Who of Prehistoric Life by Barry Cox, Colin Harrison, R.J.G. Savage, Brian Gardiner, Douglas Palmer

An unmatched reference work distinguished by its erudition and beauty, The Simon & Schuster Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Creatures is an illustrated whos who of prehistoric life, a Baedeker of more than 500 million years of evolution on Earth. <P> With entries for more than 600 species, each arranged in its evolutionary sequence, the book presents a panorama of enormous diversity, from predatory dinosaurs to primitive amphibians, from giant armored fish to woolly mammoths, saber-tooth tigers and dire wolves. Each entry features a specially commissioned full-color painting prepared according to the best research of today in close collaboration with world-renowned paleontologists. The records of the rocks -- fossil bones, teeth, skin, hair and even footprints and nests -- have been combined with knowledge of the anatomy and behavior of present-day descendants to arrive at informed judgments about posture, color and other aspects of appearance. <P> Lively and informative biographies of the creatures accompany these remarkable illustrations: how they moved, what they ate, where they ranged and the habitats and ecologica
