The Encyclopedia, Supplement 3
About the Book
This reference work is the third supplement to Dinosaurs: The Encyclopedia (a 1998 American Library Association Outstanding Reference Book) and follows the intent and format of the encyclopedia and the first two supplements (“superb…the scope is phenomenal”—ARBA; “recommended”—Booklist).
This continuation of what is now the standard encyclopedia provides up-to-date concepts, based on the latest original research of paleontologists, on such topics as the Mesozoic Era; new discoveries, ideas and studies; ectothermy versus endothermy; dinosaurs and birds; dinosaur extinctions; dinosaurian systematics; dinosaurian genera; nomina nuda and excluded genera; and an appendix discussing dinosaur tracks and eggs.
Supplemental volumes do not repeat information from earlier volumes, but build upon them:
