A GUIDE TO FOSSIL FOOTPRINTS OF THE WORLD - Professor Martin P. Lockley

28 Jan 2020 11:57

About

Dinosaur tracks and fossil footprints of mammals, avians, pterosaurs, crocodilians, turtles, and amphibians are extraordinarily abundant at many sites around the world. Unlike bones, representing palaeobiological death, tracks represent fossil behavior: the dynamic activity of living individuals and social groups ranging from walking to high speed running, limping, hopping, sexual display and large-scale herding.

Tracks have great palaeobiological utility as some rock units, with thousands and thousands of tracks, including ‘dinosaur freeways’ constitute 90 to 99% of all tetrapod evidence across entire regions and epoch-long durations.
