Reviews

Prothero has woven together a gripping tale that will fascinate readers with many levels of expertise.--Fossil News
Greenhouse of the Dinosaurs should be on the suggested reading list for any undergraduate interested in pursuing paleontology, and as a paleobiological statement, shows that paleontology is more than (fossilized) sticks and stones.--Geology Today
...this is a very enriching, stimulating, and, of course, enjoyable reading.--Zentralblatt fur Geologie und Palaontologie
