Hadrosaurs—also known as duck-billed dinosaurs—are abundant in the fossil record. With their unique complex jaws and teeth perfectly suited to shred and chew plants, they flourished on Earth in remarkable diversity during the Late Cretaceous. So ubiquitous are their remains that we have learned more about dinosaurian paleobiology and paleoecology from hadrosaurs than we have from any other group. In recent years, hadrosaurs have been in the spotlight. Researchers around the world have been studying new specimens and new taxa seeking to expand and clarify our knowledge of these marvelous beasts. This volume presents the results of an international symposium on hadrosaurs, sponsored by the Royal Tyrrell Museum and the Royal Ontario Museum, where scientists and students gathered to share their research and their passion for duck-billed dinosaurs. A uniquely comprehensive treatment of hadrosaurs, the book encompasses not only the well-known hadrosaurids proper, but also Hadrosaouroidea, allowing the former group to be evaluated in a broader perspective. The 36 chapters are divided into six sections—an overview, new insights into hadrosaur origins, hadrosaurid anatomy and variation, biogeography and biostratigraphy, function and growth, and preservation, tracks, and traces—followed by an afterword by Jack Horner.

About the Authors

David C. Evans is a Curator in Vertebrate Paleontology at the Royal Ontario Museum and an Associate Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Toronto.

Reviews

"[T]he book constitutes a worthy addition to the vast hadrosaurid literature, and will mainly appeal to those that are seriously invested in furthering their knowledge on these animals. The editors and all authors involved are to be commended for their efforts in producing such an scholarly volume containing a wealth of valuable new information on one of the most remarkable evolutionary radiations of Mesozoic terrestrial vertebrates."—Ameghiniana

"Part of the excellent 'Life of the Past' series, [this book] contains much recent information and a thorough analysis of hadrosaur anatomy, particularly as it contributed to hadrosaurs' herbivorous lifestyle. . . . The 36 chapters are technical, requiring a thorough knowledge of vertebrate anatomy and a general familiarity with dinosaur biology, and prolifically illustrated with clear diagrams and black-and-white photographs. Time devoted to this book will convince any dinosaur student that hadrosaurs were far more than food for tyrannosaurs. . . . Highly recommended."—Choice

"Well designed, handsome and fantastically well edited (credit there to Patricia Ralrick), congratulations are deserved to the editors for pulling together a vast amount of content, and doing it well. The book contains a huge quantity of information on these dinosaurs."—Darren Naish, Tetrapod Zoology, Scientific American

"Hadrosaurs have not had the wide publicity of their flesh-eating cousins, the theropods, but this remarkable dinosaur group offers unique opportunities to explore aspects of palaeobiology such as growth and sexual dimorphism. In a comprehensive collection of papers, all the hadrosaur experts of the world present their latest work, exploring topics as diverse as taxonomy and stratigraphy, locomotion and skin colour."—Michael Benton, University of Bristol
