About the Authors
  • The former Soviet Union covers a vast area of land, and over the last 200 years, many dozens of extraordinary dinosaurs and other fossil amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals have been found in Mesozoic rocks in its territories. The Permo-Triassic of the Ural Mountains of Russia have produced hundreds of superb specimens, and many of the dinosaurs from Mongolia are unique. This is the first compilation in any Western language of this large body of Russian research and the first time so much of this research, previously unexplored by the West, has been introduced in English. The Age of Dinosaurs in Russia and Mongolia is written by a unique mix of Russian and Western palaeontologists, and provides an entrée to a range of fossil faunas, in particular reptiles, that have been little known outside Russia. It will undoubtedly become a major reference work for all vertebrate palaeontologists.

    • Unique collaboration of scientists from the former Soviet Union and the West
    • First time most of the work carried out by Russian scientists in the last 50 years has been published in English
    • Covers broad array of Mesozoic faunas, of interest to all vertebrate palaeontologists

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Most of us will never get to Mongolia. Happily, you can find just about anything yet discovered that crawled, walked, swam, or flew in Russia or Mongolia in the 30 chapters and some 650 pages of this book.' Jeff Hecht, New Scientist

    'The book fills a niche in the scientific literature. There is no other compact and comprehensive summary of Russian and Mongolian vertebrate palaeontology between the covers of a single volume. The editors deserve congratulations for their initiative, drive and hard work.' Angela C. Milner, Geology

    '… will remain a useful reference book for many years to come.' Acta Palaeontologica Polonica

    '… the editors are to be congratulated on putting together a singularly useful volume that will deepen Western understanding and appreciation of the tetrapod assemblages of Russian, Mongolia and Central Asia.' Sue Evans, The Palaeontological Association Newsletter

    'The book fills a niche in the scientific literature. There is no other compact and comprehensive summary of Russian and Mongolian vertebrate palaeontology between the covers of a single volume. The editors deserve congratulations for their initiative, drive and hard work. In addition, the book is attractively produced, a convenient easy-to-handle size and well bound …'. Angela C. Milner, The Times Higher Education Supplement
