The Pterosauria

Dave Martill, David Unwin and Robert Loveridge are working on a definitive publication on the order Pterosauria. The text has a significant number of contributions from the leading workers in the field and has a forward by Peter Wellnhofer. It is planned for publication by Cambridge University Press in December 2010 and this looks like a significant "must have" for anyone who is serious about fossil pterosaurs. The pre-order UK price is £80 sterling, though this is projected to increase after publication.
There have been some significant discoveries since Peter Wellnhofer wrote The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Pterosaurs (published in 1991) and this new text should address the later developments in a clear and informed way. Its publication is eagerly awaited.
