About the dinosaurs have written extensively and have been the stars of blockbuster movies and many museum exhibits ... This book offers a new perspective, as the author takes their fossil record, truly unique among vertebrates continental to explain to the reader how the world who lived and ruled for over 150 million years. While skeletal remains basically inform us about their morphology, their size and their kinship with other agencies, the traces have shown how they walked, how fast they moved and what their dynamic conditions. Registration of eggs and nests can track how their reproductive strategies, preferably built their nests where and how to care for their offspring. A fascinating story that opens a window into the past to see a world full of life, without doubt, one of the most interesting chapters in the history of our planet. A lengthy episode, however, ended abruptly 65 million years ago during the last of the five major mass extinctions, an event still full of enigmas and unanswered questions.
