About Peter L. Falkingham
Dr Peter L. Falkingham is a Reader in Vertebrate Biology at Liverpool John Moores University, UK. In 2003 he was awarded a BSc in Biology and Geology from the University of Bristol, and a year later an MSc in Computer Science from that same institution. He then went on to carry out a PhD at the University of Manchester on Computer Simulation of Dinosaur Tracks, which he completed in 2010. In 2012, Peter was awarded a Marie Curie International Outgoing Fellowship which he held at the Royal Veterinary College, London, and Brown University, USA. Falkingham's research has primarily concerned dinosaur footprints, but has also covered body mass evolution, animal hydrodynamics, and digitization methods.

Titles By Peter L. Falkingham
The latest advances in dinosaur ichnology are showcased in this comprehensive and timely volume, in which leading researchers and research groups cover the most essential topics in the study of dinosaur tracks. Some assess and demonstrate state-of-the-art approaches and techniques, such as experimental ichnology, photogrammetry, biplanar X-rays, and a numerical scale for quantifying the quality of track preservation. The high diversity of these up-to-date studies underlines that dinosaur ichnological research is a vibrant field, that important discoveries are continuously made, and that new methods are being developed, applied, and refined.
This indispensable volume unequivocally demonstrates that ichnology has an important contribution to make toward a better understanding of dinosaur paleobiology. Tracks and trackways are one of the best sources of evidence to understand and reconstruct the daily life of dinosaurs. They are windows on past lives, dynamic structures produced by living, breathing, moving animals now long extinct, and they are every bit as exciting and captivating as the skeletons of their makers.
