New perspectives on horned dinosaurs : the Royal Tyrrell Museum Ceratopsian Symposium /

Easily distinguished by the horns and frills on their skulls, ceratopsians were one of the most successful of all dinosaurs. This volume presents a broad range of cutting-edge research on the functional biology, behavior, systematics, paleoecology, and paleogeography of the horned dinosaurs, and inc...
