“The Origin of Flight”; What Was it Before it Was a Wing
March 13 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Presented by Dr. William Orr One of the most vexing problems for paleontologists is to explain how something as sophisticated as a wing or airfoil evolved. Flight itself developed in both invertebrates as well as vertebrates and even now many animal groups are actively working on the problem. My presentation will consider what constitutes flight with speculation on its origin.
