FROM DEATH TO DISPLAY


The Basics of Dinosaur Reconstruction


With images of dinosaurs adorning various items of popular culture from cereal boxes to postage stamps it can be difficult to imagine that these gigantic land-dwelling fauna have been extinct for 65 million years. Indeed, essentially all we know about what dinosaurs looked like comes from the fossil record! Inferring dinosaur morphology from from fossil bones is a process as complex and fascinating as dinosaurs themselves. This site has been constructed as a tool for understanding the basic components of dinosaur reconstruction....happy hunting!
