Dinosaurs lived and thrived, not only Earth's tropical and temperate regions, but near the poles as well. While Earth was much warmer during the Jurassic—undergoing global warming—the polar areas were still cooler and darker than the habitats in which we normally imagine most dinosaur species.

This book introduces readers to the unique dinosaurs that inhabited the planet’s extreme climate regions and how they survived there. This NSTA/CBC Outstanding Science Trade Book for 2010 takes the science of paleontology beyond other sources. Understanding the methods and insights gained through studies in polar regions will help students gain insight into climate change, plate tectonics, and adaptations in the huge and highly successful group we collectively call "dinosaurs." Lists of museums, lists of websites, and an index will help students learn more.
