Walking on eggs : the astonishing discovery of thousands of dinosaur eggs in the badlands of Patagonia by Luis M Chiappe( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Walking on Eggs is the inside story behind one of the most significant paleontological discoveries in history. In November 1997, Luis M. Chiappe and Lowell Dingus led an elite team of paleontologists and geologists into the rugged and desolate badlands of Argentina. Unsure of what they would find, Chiappe and Dingus knew that this region had produced many spectacular specimens of dinosaurs and fossil birds over the last century. Nothing could have prepared them, however, for the headline-grabbing discovery they were about to make: a massive dinosaur nesting ground covering more than a square mile and littered with tens of thousands of large, unhatched dinosaur eggs. Containing the first fossils of embryonic dinosaur skin ever found, the eggs gave rise to a host of mysteries. What species laid the eggs, and when? How were they preserved? And most intriguingly, what ancient catastrophe - deeply rooted more than 70 million years in the past - prevented them from hatching?"--Jacket

Next of kin : great fossils at the American Museum of Natural History by Lowell Dingus( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, liberally illustrated with beautiful new color and archival photography, and artwork and graphics produced especially for the renovated exhibits, is an in-depth look at the evolution of vertebrate animals in the collection. In an incisive, behind-the-scenes text, paleontologist Lowell Dingus discusses the earliest specimens: fish, amphibians, and primitive reptiles that represent evolutionary starting points for major groups; the popular saurischian dinosaurs, including the seventeen-ton Apatosauris (once called Brontosaurus) skeleton; and ornithischian dinosaurs such as the horned Triceratops. He concludes with the mammal hills, where animals as diverse as the fin-backed Dimetrodon, mastodons, and, after primates, our closest "next of kin"--Bats - are shown to be related by one hole in the skull behind the eye socket

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes the efforts of paleontologists to arrange an expedition to search for dinosaur fossils in the inhospitable region of southern South America known as Patagonia
Barnum Brown : the man who discovered Tyrannosaurus rex by Lowell Dingus( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From his stunning discovery of Tyrannosaurus rex one hundred years ago to the dozens of other important new dinosaur species he found, Barnum Brown led a remarkable life (1873-1963), spending most of it searching for fossils - and sometimes oil - in every corner of the globe. One of the most famous scientists in the world during the middle of the twentieth century, Brown - who lived fast, dressed to the nines, gambled, drank, smoked, and was known as a ladies' man - became as legendary as the dinosaurs he uncovered. Barnum Brown brushes off the loose sediment to reveal the man behind the legend. Drawing on Brown's field correspondence and unpublished notes, and on the writings of his daughter and his two wives, it discloses for the first time details about his life and travels - from his youth on the western frontier to his spying for the U.S. government under cover of his expeditions. This absorbing biography also takes full measure of Brown's extensive scientific accomplishments, making it the definitive account of the life and times of a singular man and a superlative fossil hunter."--Jacket
