Subject: Wilkinson's pterosaur wings
I just happened upon Matt Wilkinson's latest paper in the Journal of
Evolutionary Biology (details below).
Have not had time to read it in detail (pedagogical duties), but it seems
to be an excellent piece of work
and the clearest exposition of the basic mechanics of pterosaur wings
published so far.
Incidentally, Matt and colleagues (including myself) are busy with yet
another paper on the pterosaur forewing and will be presenting on this at
the 55th Symposium of Vertebrate Palaeontology and Comparative Anatomy, to
be held this year in Glasgow between Monday 27 August and Saturday 1st
September. (See www.svpca.org for more details).
