    MOBI Mark P. Witton ☆ MOBI Pterosaurs PDF/EPUB Ò ☆ women1.pro pterosaurs free, Pterosaurs eBookNo I'm not a pterosaurologist Not even a palaeontology fan Haven't read a book about dinosaurs not that we're meant to use that word for pterosaurs but you know what I mean for probably 15 years or Picked this one up on a whim on realising how little I knew about the bizarre subject and seeing all the great reviews for this bookSupposedly this is both an up to date general overview of what people know about pterosaurs from a researcher at the cutting edge of the very small field and an introductory book with pretty illustrations that a layman can understand I can't really speak for the first but it's certainly almost entirely the secondThe writing is as clear as it can be particularly early on although he does forget to define a few things as the book progresses and with some welcome humour he combines a conversational manner of speech with technical subject matter and terminology The layout and appearance are very attractive and the hand dra

    MOBI Mark P. Witton ☆ MOBI Pterosaurs PDF/EPUB Ò ☆ women1.pro pterosaurs free, Pterosaurs eBookThis is easily a five star book with the caveat that you have to have some interest in pterosaurs One of the reviews of this book described it as being part coffee table book part textbook As a coffee table book it excels Witton's illustrations are gorgeous and amazing image search uetzalcoatlus witton for some pretty astonishing examples but the scientific content is very high I'm no pterosaurologist so I can't assess whether this would be a graduate level review or something that old bearded professors would refer to but it was plenty for me Over half of the book is devoted to reviews of 16 different pterosaur groups; their paleontological history anatomy possible ecology and refreshingly frank discussions of the current state of their taxonomy This is obviously pretty tedious and not something you'd want to read straight through although a

    MOBI Mark P. Witton ☆ MOBI Pterosaurs PDF/EPUB Ò ☆ women1.pro pterosaurs free, Pterosaurs eBookAmazing book with great illustrations Comparative anatomy and flight modeling have revealed much about the pterosaurs Much information on soft tissues of pterosaurs has become available in recent years from the examination of fossils under UV lightBest guess is that pterosaurs were a parallel development with dinosaurs but no proto fossils have yet been foundMany species of Pterosaur have pneumatized bones were they have become larger in size but with thinner walls These types of bones are also found in birds and sauropod dinosaursIt appears that pterosaurs had internal air sacs and had a respiratory system like that of birds where air passes over the lungs in one direction only This design yields high efficiency needed for flightAs the flight muscles are anchored on the pelvis pterosaurs probably had thin non muscular tails On the other hand the neck appears to have bee

    MOBI Mark P. Witton ☆ MOBI Pterosaurs PDF/EPUB Ò ☆ women1.pro pterosaurs free, Pterosaurs eBook3 stars out of 5 Being a very long time dinosaur nerd I got this book from the library figuring it would be interesting to explore and it might answer a uestion that has bedeviled me occasionally for a long time It was indeed interesting and even well written But it is well written in the same sense that a star turn PhD thesis in comparative anatomy of species that are mostly known from fossils suashed flat as pancakes is well written It's a wolf of a too technical for non specialists technical tome inside the sheep's clothing of a coffee table sized volume with an arty cover I spent about fifteen hours skimming the parts that seemed comprehensible to me I don't recommend you do the same unless you have a long history of being annoyed by the nagging uestion of why pterosaurs weighing something like 500 pounds could fly but the largest bird an extinct one which was able to get off the ground weighed in at only about 170 pounds I still don't know
