Erickson quotes

  • “For tyrannosaurs—love was a dangerous game”
  • “Death awaited those entering the breeding population”
  • “Life table analyses stand to revolutionize our research by opening the door to dinosaur population biology”
  • “The mysterious rarity of juvenile tyrannosaurs is now solved—these animals just didn’t die at those ages”
  • “The reason that giants among giants, such as the Field Museum’s Sue (a T. rex) are so rare is that only a very small fraction of these animals stood to live long enough to attain maximal size for the species”
