Summary
"The Great Dinosaur Controversy unearths the most important historical and ongoing controversies that have raged over everyone's favorite extinct creatures. Students, scientists, and general readers will explore such questions as: How different were dinosaurs from today's creatures? Did Diplodocus stand upright or crawl on its belly? Did birds descend from dinosaurs? This work explores these and other key questions concluding with a look at modern-day expeditions into remote areas of South America, Africa, and Asia and a meditation on the nature of paleontology."--Jacket
