Summary
Presents a total synthesis of the ecology and evolution of the Late Cretaceous ecosystems of western North America by examining the research efforts and discoveries of paleontologists in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. The research documented in this book is rewriting our understanding of Late Cretaceous paleobiogeography and dinosaur phyletics
