DINOSAUR RESOURCES

• There are many dinosaur-related books out there of various levels of quality. Below are some of the better ones. Click a link to view the product page on Amazon for details and reviews. If it tickles your fancy stick it in your basket and checkout. The downside? If you want to own it, cash must change hands. The upside? You'll get to feel some real paper between your fingers (remember that?) and we'll get a miniscule percentage by way of commision, so the kids won't starve and we can feed our chocolate chip hazelnut cookie addiction. It's a good system ;-)
• Also, you'll need to be checking out sites like PlosOne and other open access publishers where you can read the latest papers on the latest discoveries for free. Be warned though; you need to be familiar with "the jargon" to make sense of them.
• Finally, don't be afraid to email paleontologists if you can't find answers to your pressing questions elswhere. We do it all the time. They're mostly a friendly bunch who are only too happy to help. Keep your queries on topic though; they won't know where your car keys are or how long your pizza needs to be in the oven!
