    Before their extinction, dinosaurs dominated Earth's terrestrial habitats for about 160 million years. They present the ultimate puzzle in forensic science, but we have learned a great deal about them in the last 50 years. This lecture series will explain the evolutionary and ecological relationships among dinosaurs, what it might have been like to be present in their time, and the question of what ultimately brought about the total extinction of dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous Period.

    Overall

    Audio lectures don't get any better than this. In this series, John Kricher takes us through his subject both broad an deep. Starting with delightful lighter chapters about discovery history, pop culture and movies about dinosaurs, he does not fall short when comes down to the details. In perfect pace, perfect structure, perfect sequence, he takes us from one interesting aspect to the next. At any moment he make us feel the solid science behind his facts. It is unbelievable how much can be derived from looking at just the fossil bones, in comparison with properties of living creatures. Prof. Kricher manages to pursue 30-minutes-long, complex arguments without ever loosing the reader. I am stunned by this performance, I wish more of my teachers had been of this quality. This book cannot be recommend highly enough.
