Palaeos

The Earth through deep time


Bergamodactylus

Bergamodactylus wildi Kellner, 2015; (Pterosauria: Campylognathoididae), from the Late Triassic (Middle Norian) of European Pangea. With a wingspan of only 50 cm, this was one of the smaller, as well as one of the earliest, of the Pterosaurs. It would have filled an ecological niche similar to that of modern insectivorous birds.

Under Construction


This is a holding page for now, until I get around to setting up various pages.

Whereas the main Palaeos site equally balances geological time and phylogeny (the evolutionary tree of life), the emphasis here will be less technical (although it doubtless will be technical in places) and more visual and in a sense cinematic, on the history of life through Deep Time.
