Cretaceous Period



The Cretaceous period was the final of the three periods into which we divide the Mesozoic Era (the previous periods being the Triassic period, and the Jurassic period), and occured between 144 million and 65 million years ago.

Many well-known types of dinosaurs lived during the Cretaceous, including Ankylosaurus, Iguanodon, Pachycephalosaurus, Protoceratops, Spinosaurus, Styracosaurus, Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus rex, and Velociraptor. It was also during the Cretaceous period that the first flowering plants ("angiosperms") began to appear, including, for example, beech, fig and magnolia.

At the end of the Cretaceous period (known as the K-T boundary), dinosaurs, and and a variety of other animals all suddenly became extinct. There have been many theories proposed for why this mass extinction occured.

The World in the late Cretaceous
Here is a map of the world in the late Cretaceous period. You will notice that the continents have begun to move towards their present positions (movements which continued into the subsequent Tertiary era), with the Atlantic Ocean opening up between Europe and North America, and India continuing its long journey Northwards.

The Cretaceous world was cooler than it had been in the previous Triassic and Jurassic. periods, but still warmer than that of today. At higher latitudes snowfalls became common, although the climate generally remained warm even at such latitudes - glaciation was restricted only to alpine regions in high latitudes. Meanwhile, tropical parts of the globe were much wetter than they had been previously.

The Early Cretaceous brings readers closer to prehistoric life than ever before.

What it would be like to see a living, breathing dinosaur? The Early Cretaceous brings readers closer to prehistoric life than ever before. By combining the latest paleontological findings with highly detailed, intimate drawings of wildlife from the Early Cretaceous, readers will look into the eyes of some of the most fascinating creatures to ever inhabit the earth. Written and illustrated in the style of a naturalist's notebook, the viewer will be given a first-hand account of what it is like to stand alongside everything from the first birds to flying dinosaurs to some of the largest creatures ever to walk the earth. Through detailed illustrations and descriptive narrative, readers will discover how some dinosaurs survived polar blizzards, while others were able to pump blood five stories high to reach their brains. While many books on prehistoric life lump dinosaurs into the general timeline of the Mesozoic Period, no book currently dissects plant and animal life during one specific period. This allows the book to explore wildlife seldom featured in publications, many of them recent discoveries. The Early Cretaceous is backed by the research of one of paleontology's most acclaimed theorists, giving the book the most up to date scientific interpretation regarding animal behaviors, interactions, and recreations.

"The illustrations and artistic layout are exceptionally beautiful. This is a book children will cherish, keep, and remember, and adults will be delighted to add to their collection." - Sylvia Czerkas, Author and Director The Dinosaur Museum, Utah

"The illustrations are fantastic! The Nigersaurus 'grazing' is one of the nicest reconstructions of a rebbachisaurid I've ever seen." - Matthew C. Lamanna, Ph.D., Assistant Curator, Section of Vertebrate Paleontology, Carnegie Museum of Natural History

"Fantastic artwork!" - Andrew Milner, Paleontologist and Curator at St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site

"The art is amazing" - Phil Hore, National Dinosaur Museum, Australia

"I *love* it! The style reminds me of a very cool sci-fi book that I had as a kid (and still have), Dougal Dixon's After Man: A Zoology of the Future. Dixon's book is a wonderful, lavishly illustrated introduction to evolutionary principles that helped set me on the path to becoming a professional paleontologist. I suspect your book is going to be similarly inspirational to many of today's aspiring scientists." - Matthew C. Lamanna, Ph.D., Assistant Curator, Section of Vertebrate Paleontology, Carnegie Museum of Natural History

Product Description:
The great and final age of huge dinosaurs saw such creatures as Tyrannosaurus Rex, the flying Pterodactyl, the horny Triceratops, and many others.

Prehistoric World Books combine dramatic, scientifically accurate color illustrations with a wealth of factual details based on archaeological findings to give young readers a vivid picture of the exotic succession of animals that inhabited the Earth in the prehistoric era. Dating back to perhaps 300 million years ago, with the earliest-known life forms, the six titles in this series carry the history of animal life forward to man-like creatures such as homo erectus, and finally to prehistoric homo sapiens, or human beings like ourselves, whose origins date back an estimated 200,000 years. Individual species are presented on two-page spreads that show large illustrations of the animal when it was alive, photos of reconstructed fossil skeletons, and a list of descriptive factual details. These books are great sources for elementary school class projects, or simply for fun reading.
Cretaceous Dawn
By Lisa M. Graziano

Leapfrog Press
Released: 2008-09-01
Kindle Edition (308 pages)

Cretaceous Dawn
 
Product Description:

“…An adventure-filled journey... In spite of its references to hard academic science, Cretaceous Dawn is a first-class adventure story, an effortless read as engaging as vintage Jules Verne. The descriptive prose is both evocative and illuminating, and the plot has enough twists and cliffhangers to keep readers traveling on to the inevitable conclusion.”—Natural History

"The Grazianos, sibling scientists, combine speculation and science in a compulsively page-turning time-travel adventure. A physics experiment gone awry sends four people and a dog 65 million years into the past. Day-to-day survival among creatures like giant croc Deinosuchus and T. rex becomes a priority, even as the group of stranded scientists realizes that getting home involves a 1,000 mile trek across the amazing landscape of Hell Creek. Details about plants, animals and insects in the distant past set the stage for a tight, scientifically plausible plot with a wholly unexpected twist that will keep readers guessing.”—Publishers Weekly
 
A long-extinct beetle appears in a physics lab. Four-and-a-half people and a dog are hurled 65 million years through time, to the Age of the Dinosaurs, and paleontologist Julian Whitney and his companions have only one chance for rescue. Meanwhile in the lab, police chief Sharon Earles must solve the mystery of why half a body remains where five people had just been. Physicists try to determine what went wrong but can they fix the vault in time to retrieve the missing people—and do they want to?

“A rip-snorting good yarn. . . . Cretaceous Dawn’s strength is its ability to transport the reader back in time to truly experience the Cretaceous.”—Dinosaur News

“Rendered with a clarity and vividness that gives the novel its richness, Cretaceous Dawn is plain fun, and educational at that. Short of time travel, this is as close as you’ll ever get to the grim, predatory world of the Cretaceous.”—Falmouth Enterprise

“From the Inland Sea to the infant Rocky Mountains, we see the entirety of a long-gone ecosystem. The authors’ scientific knowledge gives the story, and the giant creatures it is centered around, a realism that is immensely entertaining.”—Prehistoric Times

“[The era is] described so vividly the reader forgets that no human overlapped with a dinosaur in the sands of time.”—The Cape Cod Chronicle

Lisa M. Graziano, PhD, is a freelance editor and writer living on Cape Cod, Mass. She spent ten years as a professor of oceanography in Woods Hole, Mass. before turning to a full-time writing career. Michael S. A. Graziano, PhD, is a neuroscientist at Princeton University. He is the author of both fiction and nonfiction.

Product Description:
This book places into modern context the information by which North American mammalian paleontologists recognize, divide, calibrate, and discuss intervals of mammalian evolution known as North American Land Mammal Ages. It incorporates new information on the systematic biology of the fossil record and utilizes the many recent advances in geochronologic methods and their results.

The book describes the increasingly highly resolved stratigraphy into which all available temporally significant data and applications are integrated. Extensive temporal coverage includes the Lancian part of the Late Cretaceous, and geographical coverage includes information from Mexico, an integral part of the North American fauna, past and present.
