Re: Two pterosaur articles in tomorrow's Nature



It is possible, but rare at best, that oviparity can be derived from
viviparity, according to some recent cladistic analyses involving
extant lizards.

Don't they perhaps involve facultatively oviparous species? Populations of *Lacerta vivipara* that live at low altitudes lay eggs, while the rest of the species doesn't.
