The relationship of these giants of the air to dinosaurs and to other reptiles, their varied appearance and lifestyles, their evolution and extinction, the fossil discoveries that scientists are continually making throughout the world?all are depicted in this beautifully illustrated, accessible book for young scientists and their parents and teachers.
