Description

“Visitors to a natural history museum could not explore the number of examples contained here” – BooklistFascinating and authoritative, this book is an unprecedented survey of millions of years of life on planet Earth. Featuring an incredible mix of 3-D reconstructions, extraordinary skeletons, and amazingly intricate fossils, it uses the latest scientific research to recreate a wealth of ancient species, from the earliest primitive life forms to great dinosaurs, early mammals, and even the first humans.This richly illustrated catalogue starts with the first Precambrian microbes and traces the evolution of life through mass extinctions and ice ages. As well as dinosaurs, it features extinct plants, invertebrates, amphibians, fish, birds, reptiles, and mammals, conjuring up a series of past worlds. The book also explores geological time and examines how fossils preserve the story of evolution. This abridged edition of DK’s Prehistoric (2009) features updated information on hundreds of life forms, with a scattering of new entries – including the jellyfish Haootia, and the early Cretaceous mammal Ambolestes. Artists’ impressions of the living, breathing animals have also been updated according to the latest findings about colouring, feathers, and scales.Combining stunning visuals and clear text, Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Life is a fascinating encyclopedia for the whole family – as well as anyone enthralled by T-Rex, or the dinosaurs of the Cretaceous and Jurassic worlds.
