Zusammenfassung

«Bakker, ist der überhaupt ein guter Wissenschaftler?» Zhous Frage kam vom Rücksitz eines Leihwagens, der dem von Bakker gelenkten Laster Richtung Provo (Utah) hinterherfuhr. Die Frage schien eigentlich unberechtigt, denn schließlich war das Zeitalter der Sauropoden, jener Riesensaurier, das vor 145 Millionen Jahren endete, Bakkers Spezialgebiet, das er Zhou nun vorstellen wollte. Schwerpunkt seiner Forschungen sind die Alkalisümpfe und Wälder, die den Westen Nordamerikas zu jener Zeit bedeckten.
