Book Overview This is the first academic book about the dinosaurs, birds and pterosaurs of Korea, one of the richest and most exciting regions on earth for the study of vertebrate ichnology.

Many ichnogenera appear indigenous to Korea, and based on present evidence there is nowhere else in the world where such densities and diversity of. Birds first appeared in the Jurassic (however, true toothless birds appeared first in the Cretaceous), having evolved from a branch of theropod dinosaurs.

The first mammals also appeared during the Mesozoic, but would remain small—less than 15 kg (33 lb)—until the Cenozoic. Mesozoic Birds is a significant and important book that will be particularly useful to paleontologists and ornithologists alike. Despite the publisher's claims, it is not for the nonspecialist, as technical terms and anatomical minutiae are not likely to be easily digested by the lay reader.
