In our “Dinosaur Tracking” blog, we’ll delve into everyone’s favorite extinct animal group and the lost worlds they so nobly inhabited. We’ll post about paleontology news, dig into the latest controversies about how dinosaurs lived (and died), revisit the great fossil discoveries and peer over the shoulders of fossil hunters piecing together the grand scientific story of the Dinosauria. We’ll also delve into dinosaurs in popular culture, including comics, film, television, advertisements and everyday life.

Dinosaur Tracking is written by freelance science writer Brian Switek, who chases down the details of prehistoric creatures from his home in Salt Lake City, Utah. He is the author of the book Written in Stone, published by Bellevue Literary Press in November 2010. His new book about the lives of Tyrannosaurus and kin, A Date With a Dinosaur, will be published in early 2013 by Scientific American/FSG.
