The Jehol fossils : the emergence of feathered dinosaurs, beaked birds and flowering plants by Miman Zhang( )

17 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Jehol Biota has much to tell us about the paleobiogeography, paleoecology, paleoclimate and paleoenvironments during the late Mesozoic. In addition, these exquisitely preserved fossils not only give us a vivid picture of a once tremendously diverse community but also shed new light on the origin and early evolution of some major taxonomic groups (e.g. amphibians, birds and angiosperms), the origin of feathers and avian flight, and the co-evolution of pollinating insects and flowering plants." "This book has pieced together the most up-to-date information on the Jehol fossils, data that is otherwise scattered throughout the vast technical literature and unavailable to the general reader. The first two chapters give an inviting introduction to the Jehol Biota - the history of its study, its main components, its scientific importance, its geographical, geological and biostratigraphic framework, and its renowned fossil discoveries. Each of the remaining chapters deals with a particular group of organisms, written by leading experts. The book is lavishly illustrated with nearly 280 illustrations, including 200 photographs showing the diversity of the taxa and beauty of their preservation. The colourful restorations of live organisms are elegantly painted by some of China's most celebrated scientific illustrators to give a kiss of life to the dead bones. Although targeted primarily at an educated public, the book is also an invaluable source of information for students and professionals in paleontology, geology, evolutionary biology and science education in general."--book jacket
