On the Wing: Insects, Pterosaurs, Birds, Bats and the Evolution of Animal Flight

Oxford University Press, 2015. Hardcover. Alexander guides readers through the anomalies of the flying world: hovering hummingbirds, unexpected gliders [squirrels, for instance], and the flyers that went extinct [pterosaurs]. Alexander also delves into wing-origin theory and explores whether birds entered the skies from the trees down [as gliders] or from the ground up [as runners] and uses the latest fossil evidence to present readers with an answer. 210 pages. New / New. Item #14549
