Flugsaurier 2010 coverage

Fantastic overview of what transpired at the Flugsaurier 2010 convention by MarkWitton. An interesting bit us artists:
John (Conway) discussed why pterosaur palaeoart – sorry – palaeontography – would benefit from a far more scientific approach. He’s dead right: pterosaurs are frequently portrayed with entirely incorrect proportions, muscle construction and unlikely colour schemes.

And: another write-up by Dave Hone with great coverage... and links to abstracts... in Chinese...

Argh. Looking forward to the detailed papers, particularly of water-launching pterosaurs and Helmut Tischlinger's UV lit discovery of oversized headcrests.
