This reference work is the seventh supplement to Dinosaurs: The Encyclopedia (a 1998 American Library Association Outstanding Reference Book) and follows the intent and format of the encyclopedia and previous supplements. This supplement, as did its predecessors, offers primarily new information based upon the more recent research of vertebrate paleontologists; also, it corrects previously errors that may have crept into earlier volumes and emends outdated information. Among the many dramatic events discussed and updated are the first record of a dinosaur of any kind from Bulgaria, the first evidence of cannibalism in the genus Tyrannosaurus, the first evidence suggesting that some of the most avian dromaeosaurid theropods might have been venomous, the oldest known dinosaurian embryonic specimens recovered to date, and the first relatively complete dinosaur described from Korea. Supplemental volumes do not repeat information from earlier volumes, but build upon them:ISBN 978-0-7864-7222-2 Originial EncyclopediaISBN 978-0-7864-0591-6 Supplement 1ISBN 978-0-7864-1166-5 Supplement 2ISBN 978-0-7864-1518-2 Supplement 3ISBN 978-0-7864-2295-1 Supplement 4ISBN 978-0-7864-3241-7 Supplement 5ISBN 978-0-7864-4187-7 Supplement 6ISBN 978-1-4766-6548-1 Supplement 7

From their discovery in the 19th century to the dawn of the Nuclear Age, dinosaurs were seen in popular culture as ambassadors of the geological past and as icons of the "life through time" narrative of evolution. They took on a more foreboding character during the Cold War, serving as a warning to mankind with the advent of the hydrogen bomb. As fears of human extinction escalated during the ecological movement of the 1970s, dinosaurs communicated their metaphorical message of extinction, urging us from our destructive path. Using an eclectic variety of examples, this book outlines the three-fold "evolution" of dinosaurs and other prehistoric monsters in pop culture, from their poorly understood beginnings to the 21st century.

Dinosaur memories are hard to forget! Most who revel in the current renaissance in dinosaur science, art, fiction and movies, or who enjoy the other appealing prehistoric animals so well popularized by the media have fond recollections of what it was like “growing up dinosaur.” Together with wife Diane and his father Allen G. Debus, Allen A. Debus unveils treasured dinosaur memories and stories about prehistoric animals and paleo-people, spanning from the cold-blooded dinosaur ‘era,’ to the modern wave dinosaur renaissance. Beginning with fondly recalled roadtrips to prehistoric places where T. rex still reigns, Dinosaur Memories ventures into the realm of thunder beasts and explores the rich ‘pop-cultural’ appeal of prehistoric animals. If you’ve ever collected dinosaurs, enjoyed fossil hunting or visits to see the old bones in museums, Dinosaur Memories is a book you’ll still recall years from now! Thirty-five chapters are grouped into seven sections titled, “Roads Into Prehistory,” “Thunder Beasts,” “Dinosaur Worlds,” “Fantasy Dinosaurs,” “Fossil Trickery,” “Paleo-people,” and “Rustlin’ up Dinos.”

This new book, greatly expanded from the 1995 first edition, describes detailed, step-by-step procedures for sculpting, molding and painting original prehistoric animals. It emphasizes the use of relatively inexpensive materials including oven-hardening polymer clay and wire. Additional tips are offered on how to build distinctive dino-dioramas and scenes involving one's own original sculptures that you will learn how to conceive and build. This book will appeal to a new generation who would like to break into the industry of paleosculpture. Techniques range from "basic" to "advanced." The authors also discuss what it means to be a "paleoartist."
