Pressestimmen'The first modern volume ever published in the subdiscipline was assembled, all papers expertly and multiply reviewed and edited, with unusual devotion and success, into a handsome book. Even its taxonomic rigors need not put off a general reader. Some history, more interpretation, many regional and individual site reports, and new techniques for recording and comparison are addressed, with a useful introduction and summary.' Scientific American 'This book is bound to appeal to dinosaur enthusiasts, but its value goes far beyond that. I recommend it not merely to dinosaur specialists but to all who have an interest in locomotor function and behaviour of any fossil lower retrapod.' Episodes
