Horns and Beaks: Ceratopsian and Ornithopod Dinosaurs

Synopsis

Horns and Beaks completes Ken Carpenter's series on the major dinosaur types. As with his volumes on armored, carnivorous, and sauropodomorph dinosaurs, this book collects original and new information, reflecting the latest discoveries and research on these two groups of animals. The Ornithopods include Iguanodon, one of the first dinosaurs ever discovered and analyzed, and perhaps the most common and best-documented group, the hadrosaurs or "duckbilled dinosaurs." The Ceratopsians include Triceratops, known for its distinctive three-horned skull and protective collar.

Excerpt

The past decade has seen a considerable amount of research done on dinosaurs. Some of the most exciting of this work has been presented in this series by Indiana University Press: The Armored Dinosaurs (2001), Mesozoic Vertebrate Life (2001, edited with Darren Tanke), The Carnivorous Dinosaurs (2005), and ThunderLizards (2005, edited with Virginia Tidwell). This volume is the last in the series of edited volumes and deals with current research in ornithischian dinosaurs other than the armored ones. Horns and Beaks presents some historical insights as well as some descriptive studies. As before, I hope there is a little of something for everyone.
