Abstract

The meek shall inherit the earth. Triceratops horridus encounters Tyrannosaurus rex. Late Cretaceous of Montana, 65 million years before present. The encounter did not come out the way many thought it would. This young Tyrannosaurus had insufficient respect for a powerful and dangerous adversary. In this special issue we explore recent advances in understanding the anatomy and paleobiology of dinosaurs, including Tyrannosaurus, using powerful modern anatomical techniques. Painting by Wayne D. Barlowe from The Horned Dinosaurs by Peter Dodson (1996), Princeton University Press. Reproduced with permission of the artist.
