Special Papers in Palaeontology, Number 77, Evolution and Palaeobiology of Early Sauropodomorph Dinosaurs (1405169338) cover image
Special Papers in Palaeontology, published by The Palaeontological Association, is a series of substantial separate works conforming to the style of the Palaeontology journal. Two issues are published each year and feature high standard illustrations.

  • An analysis of Sauropoda which includes many of the most familiar dinosaurs, such as Apatosaurus (formerly ‘Brontosaurus’), Diplodocus and Brachiosaurus (the latter finding fame in the Jurassic Park movies)

  • Advances our knowledge of sauropod phylogeny, biomechanics, physiology and ecology and offers insights into the limits of life at large body size

  • An active and constructive debate in dinosaur studies that will serve as a benchmark for future work on prosauropods and basal sauropods

  • Includes 107 text-figures and 24 tables
