Dinosaurs and D Guide - Resources and Review

Collection of information about dinosaurs including species lists arranged alphabetically, by author, and by date of discovery. Features details of dinosaur taxonomy, organised by Linnean classification and a cladogram of the major dinosaurian groups. Also provides information on what dinosaurs were like, why they died out, a selection of images, and information on dinosaur research.
A major scientific and educational institution which carries out research seeking to identify and describe the earth and its myriad life forms, and to share the results of this work with a broad public. Museum scientists trace the history of life, explore the development and relationships of different groups of animals, document changes in the environment, and describe the achievements of human cultures. The museum's collection of more than 30 million specimens and cultural artefacts includes dinosaur fossils, a canoe carved by Haida Indians, a slice of a giant sequoia tree, and the costume of an African spirit dancer.
Illustrated dinosaur exhibition and information, including recent dinosaur bones found in Scotland.
Information about the discovery of the fossilised heart of a small herbivore called a Thescelosaurus which revealed a structure more like that of a bird or a mammal than a reptile, suggesting that some dinosaurs had high metabolic rates. Includes images of the 3
D reconstruction of the dinosaur's chest cavity.
Provides information pertaining to dinosaur and vertebrate palaeontology. Offers a variety of material including details of digs and exhibits, and a range of artwork, publications, and societies.
Introduces the fossilised Tyrannosaurus Rex discovered in South Dakota in 1990. Named Sue, after its discoverer, the remains are regarded as the best preserved and most complete example of the species uncovered to date. Gives measurement information such as weight of skull and length of teeth, and offers details of her significance and the dispute over ownership and purchase. Also describes the preparation and mounting of the skeleton, and recent developments.
Factual information on a range of animal species, describing the diet, habitat, and reproductive cycle of each. Users can browse by class, selecting from mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates, endangered or extinct, and prehistoric, within which specific species are listed alphabetically. An interactive map provides an alternative mode of access. Content is offered in English and French.

An exhibition of original publications related to the history of dinosaur discovery.
The Peabody Museum's collections are at the core of the museum's exhibit philosophy. Exhibitions include the Age of Reptiles, Invertebrate Paleontology, Fossil of the Month, Birds of Connecticut, The Social Life of Cliff Swallows, Natural History Dioramas, An Ndjuka Maroon Shrine from Suriname, Designing Dinosaurs, and Dogs in Native America.
Study of the dinosaur footprints of the middle Jurassic (Ravenscar Group) of the Cleveland area of Yorkshire.
Offers evidence of an asteroid impact 65 million years ago, when dinosaurs became extinct. Features images from a deep
sea core sample which supports the hypothesis that an asteroid collision devastated terrestrial and marine environments worldwide, and shows a record of flourishing marine life before the event, followed by mass extinction, the evolution of new species and slow recovery of surviving life forms after the event.
