Description

An essential resource for current information on the ceratopsians


Easily distinguished by the horns and frills on their skulls, ceratopsians were one of the most successful of all dinosaurs. This volume presents a broad range of cutting-edge research on the functional biology, behavior, systematics, paleoecology, and paleogeography of the horned dinosaurs, and includes descriptions of newly identified species.

PREFACE
Horned dinosaurs (ceratopsians) are among the best-loved and better-known groups within the Dinosauria. We are still learning more about them every day, which is why the Ceratopsian Symposium was convened at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology (Drumheller, Alberta) on September 22–24, 2007. The symposium was a joint venture among three groups: (1) Don Brinkman, Dave Eberth, and Phil Currie from the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Alberta (most of you are aware that Phil is now at the University of Alberta); (2) Michael Ryan from the Cleveland Museum of Natural History; and (3) Brenda Chinnery-Allgeier from the University of Texas at Austin. With so many new specimens and putatively new taxa starting to appear, a
