Re: Bat Aerodynamics Reveal Surprises
Quoting Guy Leahy <email@example.com>:
I wonder if any of this would apply to pterosaurs?
Speaking as a non-functional-morphologist, I'd expect them to be pretty
different. Pterosaurs, after all, don't have all those joints within
the surface of the wing. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I also have the
impression that pterosaur flight membranes would have been stiffer than
those of bats.
