Fukui memoirs, pterosaur paper



Dear Jaime,

When you see the Historical Biology paper you'll see that there really
is only one wing shape among all pterosaurs, and your Zittel wing
example is the one. The other wing shapes will be dismantled.

That the deep chord wing model survived so long testifies to the power
of the bat-wing paradigm. Ironically, you'll see that even those who
railed against the "bat-winged pterosaur" let the bat-wing model
influence their reconstructions.
