re: Papers on pterosaur ontogeny

Hi Nick,

Old request, but a quick scan revealed nothing was answered online. Apologies 
if this duplicates earlier replies.

Almost anything by Chris Bennett, including his new paper on the small 
anurognathid, has something to do with ontogeny. Wellnhofer (1970, 1975, and 
1991) labeled many a juvenile. Also David Unwin's The Pterosaurs from Deep Time 
dips its unguals in these waters.
