Unravelling the genealogy of dinosaurs

It must be obvious that Iguanodon was just one dinosaur that fitted into far larger tableaux of life in the Mesozoic Era. Walking dinosaur costume One of the important tasks that falls to palaeontologists is to try to discover the genealogy, or evolutionary history, of the species that they study. To put dinosaurs as a whole into some sort of perspective, it will be necessary to outline the techniques used to do this, and our current understanding of dinosaurian evolutionary history.
