Einiosaurus in Writing
In 1995, after multiple specimens, and herds actually, had been unearthed in the 1980's and after a number of years of study, Scott Sampson unleashed upon the world his description of both Einiosaurus and Anchelosaurus. The Dinosaur Society helped pay for the appearance of the scholarly paper in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology (Vol. 15 No. 4). The JSTOR version of the paper can be accessed through the members pages of the SVP. Additionally, there is a book on horned dinosaurs, by David West, called Triceratops and Other Horned Herbivores that does a very good job of describing the attributes and explaining the life of not only Einiosaurus but also many other horned dinosaurs in a way that a younger audience will understand. The book preview is actually fairly in depth compared to most previews one can get online, which is very nice. I especially like how the contents compare each animal to a modern white rhino.
