The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs

Steve Brusatte

Overview

Few people stop to think what lies under the ground they tread on. But if you dig down you can find the entire recorded history of life on our planet. Paleontologists are experts in extrapolating stories from rocks, able to glean the evolution or extinction of entire species from mere traces.

Steve Brusatte is a leading paleontologist at the University of Edinburgh who has named over 15 new species of dinosaurs. In this book, Brusatte vividly documents the adventures, discoveries and insights gained in his many years studying fossils. The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs is not only a personal record of Brusatte's career, but a journey to examine how a species that dominated the world can be wiped out by rapid environmental change.

"They walked on the very ground below us, their fossils now entombed in rock - these clues that tell this story. To me, it's one of the greatest narratives in the history of our planet."
