Product description

Review

"This book is a ′must′ for a biology or geology student and researcher concerned by palaeontology. It perfectly succeeds in showing how palaeobiological information is obtained." ( Zentrallblatt fur Geologie und Palaontologie , 2007) "This fine textbook by Michael Benton (Department of Geology University of Bristol) sets the standard in the field – a well–developed and wonderfully researched book that will serve the student community in the study of Palaeontology for years to come." ( Electric Review.Net, September 2004 ) "This is the third edition of a very long running (1990) and highly successful textbook in the field of vertebrate palaeontology...an invaluable aid to those who wish to know more about vertebrate fossils. There are plenty of well–drawn labelled diagrams. The text is clear and the book superbly planned and ordered...A classic textbook..." ( Down to Earth, December 2004 ) [The] simple language and general attitude make it accessible even to readers not familiar with paleontology at all. ...the author has succeeded in making it as comprehensive as possible in respect to such complex factual material. In few other books is the biological diversity of vertebrates presented in such an elegant and precise manner.... These parts of the book impressively show the unusual extent of the author′s knowledge. Michael Benton is an expert on the early evolution of dinosaurs, but his expertise in a range of problems of vertebrate paleontology is astonishing... No doubt that Michael Benton′s professional review of the evolution of the most complex of animals has to be placed high on the evolutionary tree of university textbooks. There is probably no better, more comprehensive and up–to–date source..." ( Journal of Sedimentary Research, March 2005 ) "...a textbook aimed at enthusiasts and undergraduates...it is well laid out and the clear narrative style makes it accessible and easily read. I am sure anyone who wishes to learn more about the history of vertebrates will find it a very useful and informative book with much of interest to be gleaned." ( Glasgow Naturalist, June 2006 ) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

"Mike Benton′s textbook on vertebrate palaeontology has been an aclaimed success since its first edition in 1990...it has now undergone very substantial further revision for its newly published third edition...This new edition reflects the enormous upsurge in research and results for vertebrate palaeontology over just the past ten years, in which Mike himself has played a leading role...a one–stop buy for all those who would like a good background perspective and summary of vertebrate palaeontology...a book which I can strongly recommend."
Robin Cocks, GA Magazine of the Geologists′ Association, March 2005

"This volume... is on the way to becoming a classic. This third edition...is also all one could hope for in a field that is changing so fast... The interest of the book is very much in the diversity of approaches used...This book is certainly the best introduction to the palaeontology of the vertebrates which is currently available, and its potential readership clearly passes beyond the student world alone. It has been translated into many languages, and one can only hope that a French edition will also see the light of day."
Professor Eric Buffetaut (Paris), Géochronique, June 2005
