Dinosaur Tracks

The Next Steps

The latest advances in dinosaur ichnology are showcased in this comprehensive and timely volume, in which leading researchers and research groups cover the most essential topics in the study of dinosaur tracks. Some assess and demonstrate state-of-the-art approaches and techniques, such as experimental ichnology, photogrammetry, biplanar X-rays, and a numerical scale for quantifying the quality of track preservation. The high diversity of these up-to-date studies underlines that dinosaur ichnological research is a vibrant field, that important discoveries are continuously made, and that new methods are being developed, applied, and refined. This indispensable volume unequivocally demonstrates that ichnology has an important contribution to make toward a better understanding of dinosaur paleobiology. Tracks and trackways are one of the best sources of evidence to understand and reconstruct the daily life of dinosaurs. They are windows on past lives, dynamic structures produced by living, breathing, moving animals now long extinct, and they are every bit as exciting and captivating as the skeletons of their makers.

Reviews

"This indispensable volume unequivocally demonstrates that ichnology has an important contribution to make toward a better understanding of dinosaur paleobiology."—BirdBooker Report

"[This]book is very well produced and is in color throughout with numerous figures and artwork, and the reproduction of the images is generally excellent. In a field so dominated by interpretation of complex and subtle forms this is an important aspect of the volume and adds significantly to its appeal. This book is an excellent compendium and a timely piece on a rapidly expanding and changing area of research."—Quarterly Review of Biology

"Dinosaur Tracks is a benchmark and a must-have for all researchers working on dinosaur tracks and on dinosaurs in general."—Swiss Journal of Palaeontology

"Any scientist that considers the study of dinosaur (or other tetrapod) tracks should buy Dinosaur Tracks. For any person, scientifically informed illustrations presented in the book, will give a long-standing positive impression and thus show a value of dinosaur ichnology."—Andrej Spiridonov, Priscum, The Newsletter of the Palentological Society
