PostSubject: Natural Histories of Dinos   Natural Histories of Dinos Icon_minitimeMon Aug 07, 2017 11:53 pm

When I think of what natural history means, I think of the Geils/Vogler quote below. A Natural History of Dinos (henceforth NHD) is the best kind of non-encyclopedic dino book. There are 2 main reasons for why I think that is: 1) It's "designed to be read from start to finish as the developing story of a remarkable group of animals...[in a] direct, clear written style" ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/Natural-History-Museum-Book-Dinosaurs/dp/184442183X ); See Joseph's "For Love of Stories" ( https://artsci.washington.edu/news/2019-06/love-stories ) for why it's important that popular dino books are designed that way; 2) It puts dinos into an evolutionary & ecological context; See "Item Mentality and Dinosaurs in Popular Science" ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpJjOwKh6RY ) & "Alternatives to the Item Mentality in Dinosaur Books and Art" ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkAXXUCjYHs ) for why it's important that popular dino books do that. Yes, I have a Bachelor of Science in "Natural History and Interpretation" ( https://www.deviantart.com/jd-man/journal/Finally-my-1st-journal-entry-327744587 ) & thus am very biased. That said, NHD books are mostly very good to great & I wanna know about all of them, hence this journal entry[...which was originally posted at deviantART: https://www.deviantart.com/jd-man/journal/SD-Natural-Histories-of-Dinos-697472470 ]. All the NHD books I know about are listed below. If there are any books you think should be listed, please let me know. Many thanks in advance. 1 more thing of note: When trying to identify NHD books, look for a combination of the following or similar phrases:
-"a [adjective] look at"
-"a safari through time"
-"a trip to the Mesozoic"
-"as living animals"
-"day(s) of the dinosaur(s)"
-"dinosaur history"
-"evolution and ecology"
-"how they lived"
-"in a [adjective] context"
-"in the context of"
-"places them in"
-"the dinosaur story"
-"their evolution and extinction"
-"their history"
-"their natural habitat"
-"their natural environment"
-"their rise and fall"
-"their story"
-"their world"
-"time and space"
-"who they were"

Quoting Geils/Vogler (See "A Natural History Perspective": http://web.archive.org/web/20111024233515/https://www.fs.fed.us/rm/pubs/rmrs_p063/rmrs_p063_210_217.pdf ):
Quote :
The term history in natural history derives from the Greek for inquiry or knowing. A natural history is a description of one kind of organism in its natural environment. It is a narrative on the development, behavior, relationships, evolution, and significance of a subject organism. We are inspired by Charles Darwin and E. O. Wilson. Their work demonstrates that natural history is not just for charismatic species, but also for ‘lowly’ barnacles and ants. Natural history unites biology and philosophy. What we perceive depends on how we observe and integrate that observation into an operational model of reality (see Hawking and Mlodinow 2010). What we perceive determines what we accept as true, beautiful, and right—therefore, what motivates our action.

I will also spend a little time explaining precisely what, scientifically, a dinosaur is understood to be. There is frequently some confusion about this")
