The eggs, buried in mud, meant that they had stumbled across the scene of a long-forgotten catastrophe.

    Out of Thin Air
    Author:   Peter D. Ward
    Genres:   Science
    Publisher:   Joseph Henry Press
    Ward accounts for the remarkable indestructibility of dinosaurs by connecting their unusual respiration system with their ability to adapt to Earth’s changing environment – a system that was ultimately bequeathed to their descendants, birds. By tracing the evolutionary path back through time, slowly but deliberately connecting the dots from birds to dinosaurs, Ward describes the unique form of breathing shared by these two distant relatives – and demonstrates how this simple but remarkable characteristic provides the elusive explanation to a question that has thus far stumped scientists.
