Pterosaurs- Where's Plieninger's Campylognathus tooth?
I've just conducted a preliminary analysis on pterosaur dental microstructure
to present at the Beijing meeting later this summer. The most available data
was relatable to ornithocheirids, but obviously I want to test my conclusions
accross the Pterosauria. In Plieninger's 1895 paper on Campylognathus he notes
observations from thin sections he made of its teeth. This is of historic
interest only, but if the thin sections are still out there, currated into a
collection they could still be of scientific use, does anyone know where they
Equally if there any nice currators out there that have indet. pterosaur jaws
with teeth in them, pulled teeth, or loose (relatable) teeth which could be
sectioned for further studies please get in touch.
