This indispensable volume unequivocally demonstrates that ichnology has an important contribution to make toward a better understanding of dinosaur paleobiology. * BirdBooker Report * [This] book is very well produced and is in color throughout with numerous figures and artwork, and the reproduction of the images is generally excellent. In a field so dominated by interpretation of complex and subtle forms this is an important aspect of the volume and adds significantly to its appeal. This book is an excellent compendium and a timely piece on a rapidly expanding and changing area of research. * Quarterly Review of Biology *
