Early tetrapod feeding

Well, I’ve managed to fail at my scicomm resolution for the year, which was to write at least one blog post a month. I missed out on September, but I’m back on it in October with an update on what I’ve been up to in the past few months. As some of you know, I’ve … More Early tetrapod feeding

Stuttgart and Munich in particular have excellent pterosaur collections, including many historically significant specimens.

It’s still related though, and ties in with these questions … More Pterosaur bone mass

That weekend, I was offered the project and some funding, which I officially accepted on Friday. I will start sometime at the beginning of October, and will be moving … More PhD at Southampton!
