Parsing Science - Debunking Pterosaurs Flight

<a href="" rel="noopener" target="_blank">Armita Manafzadeh</a>, from Brown University, talks with us about how her simulations of pterosaurs' range-of-motion demonstrate that the ancient reptiles almost certainly couldn't have flown like most paleontologists have thought for over 200 years. Her article, "<a href="" rel="noopener" target="_blank">ROM mapping of ligamentous constraints on avian hip mobility: implications for extinct ornithodirans</a>" was published on May 23, 2018 with <a href="" rel="noopener" target="_blank">Kevin Padian</a> in the <em><a href="" rel="noopener" target="_blank">Proceedings of the Royal Society B - Biological Science</a></em>.<div><br></div><div><br></div>
