Dougal Dixon - Author

Dougal Dixon is a palaeontologist, writer and book editor specializing in the earth sciences. He has many children's books and encyclopaedias to his name. Some of his most notable books are After Man: a zoology of the future in which he explained the workings of evolution by postulating the types of animals that may evolve in times to come; The New Dinosaurs, in which he described the zoogeography of the world by describing what life might be like today had the dinosaurs not become extinct; and Time Exposure (aka The Age of Dinosaurs) in collaboration with wildlife photographer Jane Burton, in which extinct animals are dramatically portrayed in lifelike photographs. As a practical geologist Dougal was involved in excavating a dinosaur-rich site in Jurassic rocks at Durlston on the Dorset coast.
