International Dinosaur Day Collection

PeerJ Collection

Dinosaurs have an outsized impact on the scientific imagination, reflecting the vast time span and geographic regions they inhabited, along with an array of body forms and behaviors. This collection brings together 10 notable PeerJ publications on these Mesozoic denizens.

I selected these papers to highlight work that I find personally interesting, while also reflecting the evolutionary diversity of dinosaurs and the global nature of paleontological discoveries. Some contributions delve into anatomical details accompanied by exquisite illustrations, others explore previously unknown aspects of dinosaur behavior and biology, and still others present species new to science. In all cases, the work provides important contributions to help us reconstruct a long-gone world.
