John "Jack" R. Horner



John "Jack" R. Horner (1946-) is an American paleontologist who discovered and named Maiasaura. This was an important discovery as it offered the first clear evidence that some dinosaurs cared for their young, as well as containing the first dinosaur embryos discovered, and the first dinosaur eggs found in the Western hemisphere.

Horner also served as the technical advisor to the Jurassic Park movies. He also was part of the inspiration behind the films' character, Dr. Alan Grant (played by Sam Neill).

From Aardonyx to Zuniceratops—A Dino-Mite Gathering of All the Dinosaurs (More Than 300!) Worth Knowing About

We live in a golden age of paleontological discovery—the perfect time to dig in to the spectacular world of dinosaurs. From Aardonyx, a lumbering beast that formed a link between two and four-legged dinosaurs, to Zuniceratops, who boasted a deadly pair of horns, Dinosaurs—The Grand Tour details everything worth knowing about every important dinosaur that scientists know about—more than 300 in all.
 
In Dinosaurs you’ll learn all the gory details—about geology, anatomy, evolution, astronomy, and even Native American and Chinese mythology. Stories of harrowing paleontological expeditions conjure the thrills of history’s most famous dinosaur hunters. Highlights of recent research reveal what’s going on in the world of dinosaurs today, including scientists’ recent discovery of pigments embedded in dinosaur fossils that shed light, for the first time, on dinosaurs’ true coloration. Illustrations on virtually every page bring these prehistoric creatures to life in all their razor-sharp, long-necked, spiny, scaly glory.
 
And for readers inspired to test their dino-expertise in the field, renowned paleontologist Jack Horner’s field notes will help enthusiasts set out on their own expeditions. Track down dinosaur footprints at Horner’s recommended sites, head out on a cross-country dinosaur road trip using Horner’s list of top North American dinosaurs as your map, and learn what it’s like to be a leading paleontologist who’s been part of some of the most sensational dinosaur discoveries ever—and how you can get involved, too!

A world-renowned paleontologist reveals groundbreaking science that trumps science fiction: how to grow a living dinosaur

Over a decade after Jurassic Park, Jack Horner and his colleagues in molecular biology labs are in the process of building the technology to create a real dinosaur.

Based on new research in evolutionary developmental biology on how a few select cells grow to create arms, legs, eyes, and brains that function together, Jack Horner takes the science a step further in a plan to "reverse evolution" and reveals the awesome, even frightening, power being acquired to recreate the prehistoric past. The key is the dinosaur's genetic code that lives on in modern birds- even chickens. From cutting-edge biology labs to field digs underneath the Montana sun, How to Build a Dinosaur explains and enlightens an awesome new science.

We live in a golden age of archaeological discovery—the perfect time to dig into the spectacular world of dinosaurs.

Dinosaurs—The Grand Tour has always included everything worth knowing about more than 300 dinosaurs from A to Z; in this newly revised, expanded, and updated 2nd edition, you’ll find all the latest science and species you need to know about now, including:
  • Patagotitan mayorum—an Argentine titanosaur and the new title holder of “biggest dinosaur ever known”
  • Nanuqsaurus hoglundi—an Alaskan species whose name means “polar bear lizard”
  • New evidence that, contrary to what you saw on Jurassic Park, T. rex couldn’t run!

The important discoveries and gory details touch on topics from geology, anatomy, evolution, and astronomy to Native American and Chinese myth. Illustrations on virtually every page, true to the latest findings, bring these prehistoric creatures to life in all their razor-sharp, long-necked, furry, feathered glory.
