Abstract:
The taxonomy and locomotory methods of pterosaurs have been extensively scrutinised for as long as pterosaurs themselves have been known, but comparatively little research has been conducted into their lifestyles and habits. Pterosaurs have largely been interpreted as Mesozoic equivalents of modem marine birds, principally foraging through flight-based methods of dip- or skim-feeding. Here, several lines of enquiry suggest that pterosaurs were considerably more ;ologically diverse that previously anticipated.
