About the Authors
  • 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.

    • The only book on this subject
    • Author Jack Horner is very well-known and is the model for the palaeontologist Grant in Jurassic Park
    • Follows successful hardback edition in 1994

    '… an essential addition to the dinosaur literature and is the only compact reference work covering reproductive biology. It succeeds admirably in summarizing the current state of knowledge while drawing attention to how much remains unknown.' Angela Milner, Nature
