Overview

Special Papers in Palaeontology, published by The Palaeontological Association, is a series of substantial separate works conforming to the style of the Palaeontology journal. Two issues are published each year and feature high standard illustrations.

  • An analysis of Sauropoda which includes many of the most familiar dinosaurs, such as Apatosaurus (formerly ‘Brontosaurus’), Diplodocus and Brachiosaurus (the latter finding fame in the Jurassic Park movies)
  • Advances our knowledge of sauropod phylogeny, biomechanics, physiology and ecology and offers insights into the limits of life at large body size
  • An active and constructive debate in dinosaur studies that will serve as a benchmark for future work on prosauropods and basal sauropods
  • Includes 107 text-figures and 24 tables
