Excerpt from A History of British Fossil: Mammals, and Birds. I propose in the present work to describe the most characteristic and remarkable Fossil Remains of Mammals and Birds that have hitherto been found in the British Islands; to deduce therefrom, by Physiological com parisons, the living habits of the extinct species, to trace out their Zoological affinities, and to indicate their Geo Brand: Dr Richard Owen.

and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at Richard Owen, in full Sir Richard Owen, (born JLancaster, Lancashire, England—died DecemLondon), British anatomist and paleontologist who is remembered for his contributions to the study of fossil animals, especially dinosaurs.

He was the first to recognize them as different from today’s reptiles; in he classified them in a group he called Dinosauria. Fossil mammals and birds have been found at many hundreds of localities in Britain, and there is a long history of collection and study, dating back to the earliest days of palaeontology.

Many British specimens have been pivotal in major developments in the history of the sciences of palaeontology, comparative anatomy and evolution.

While occupied with so much material from abroad, Owen was also busily collecting facts for an exhaustive work on similar fossils from the British Isles and, in –, he published his History of British Fossil Mammals and Birds, which was followed by many later memoirs, notably his Monograph of the Fossil Mammalia of the Mesozoic Alma mater: University of Edinburgh, St Bartholomew's .Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, Octavo, paperback, black and white illustrations.

Richard Owen was both a controversial and influential palaeontologist and anatomist. In his role as superintendent of natural history in the British Museum he became an authority on comparative anatomy and palaeontology, coining the term 'dinosaur' and founding the Natural History Museum.The evolution of mammals has passed through many stages since the first appearance of their synapsid ancestors in the Pennsylvanian sub-period of the late Carboniferous period.

By the mid-Triassic, there were many synapsid species that looked like lineage leading to today's mammals split up in the Jurassic; synapsids from this period include Dryolestes, more closely related to.
