In 1878, the 1st whole dinosaur skeleton used to be came across in a coal mine in Bernissart, Belgium. Iguanodon, first defined via Gideon Mantell at the foundation of fragments found in England in 1824, was once at first reconstructed as an iguana-like reptile or a seriously outfitted, horned quadruped. notwithstanding, the Bernissart skeleton replaced all that. The animal used to be displayed in an upright posture just like a kangaroo, and later with its tail off the floor just like the dinosaur we all know of this day. concentrating on the Bernissant discoveries, this e-book provides the newest learn on Iguanodon and different denizens of the Cretaceous ecosystems of Europe, Asia, and Africa. Pascal Godefroit and individuals think about the Bernissart locality itself and the hot study courses which are underway there. The e-book additionally offers a scientific revision of Iguanodon; new fabric from Spain, Romania, China, and Kazakhstan; reports of different Early Cretaceous terrestrial ecosystems; and examinations of Cretaceous vertebrate faunas.
