Dinosaur Eggs and Babies by Kenneth Carpenter

Book Description

In the last couple of decades the study of dinosaur eggs and babies has proved to be one of the most exciting and profitable areas of dinosaur research. This is the first book solely devoted to this topic and reviews, in scientific detail, our present state of knowledge about this exciting area of palaeontology. Chapters in the book discuss all aspects of the science including the occurrence of eggs, nests and baby skeletons, descriptive osteology of juvenile skeletons, comparative histology of juvenile bone, analyses of eggs and egg shells, palaeoenvironments of nesting sites, nesting behaviour and developmental growth of baby dinosaurs. The volume will be an invaluable addition to the book collections of vertebrate palaeontologists and their graduate students.

Tyrannosaurus Rex, the Tyrant King by Kenneth Carpenter Tyrannosaurus Rex, the Tyrant King, Hardback (July 2008)

With its massive head, enormous jaws, and formidable teeth, Tyrannosaurus rex has long been the young person's favorite creepy carnivore in the Mesozoic zoo. This collection explores such questions as why T rexhad such small forelimbs; how the dinosaur moved; and, what bone pathologies tell us about life in the Cretaceous.

Horns and Beaks by Kenneth Carpenter Horns and Beaks, Hardback (November 2006)

The Ornithopods include Iguanodon, one of the first dinosaurs ever discovered and analyzed, and perhaps the best-documented group, the hadrosaurs or 'duckbilled dinosaurs.' The Ceratopsians include Triceratops, known for its distinctive three-horned skull and protective collar. This book collects information on these two groups of animals.

Thunder-Lizards by Kenneth Carpenter Thunder-Lizards, Hardback (August 2005)

The large quadrupedal herbivores known as sauropods roamed the planet from the Jurassic to the end of the Cretaceous. With the longest necks and tails of all of the dinosaurs, some sauropods were 40 meters in length and weighed upwards of 100,000 kilograms. This book presents 21 studies of the sauropods.
