    The Pterosaurs: From Deep time

    Post  macrocephale on Sun Feb 05, 2012 11:06 pm

    Everybody loves Pterosaurs. Or at least they should do. This is the first real Pterosaur book since 'Dragons of the Air', which was written almost 100 years ago, and naturally a lot has changed since then. For instance, we now know what Pterosaurs are! Unfortunately this book is a bit rare, and expensive, but well worth a look when you get a chance.
    There is another Pterosaur book coming later this year though.. Stay tuned!

    There are a few big bit's of palaeoart, but it's almost more textbooky in style. The book coming out later this year, by Mark Witton (a prominant palaeoartist and lecturer at my uni) will have a lot more though. This book has chapters based on things like mechanics of flight, while Mark's will have chapters on each of the main groups and in depth phylogenys etc (not that there is no mention in this one)
