Taking Wing: Archaeopteryx & the Evolution of Bird Flight
Pat Shipman (au). Are birds actually living dinosaurs? Where does the fossil record really lead? What does it mean to fly? A few years after the publication of Darwin’s “The Origin of Species” a fossil skeleton was discovered, exquisitely preserved, even to the impressions of individual feathers on its wings. This discovery offered tangible proof of the theory of evolution & fueled a heated debate that has continued for to this day. This book is a brilliant piece of scientific detective work, offering a glimpse into the origins of flights. Focuses on the 7 specimens of Archaeopteryx as the fossils crucial to understanding how birds got off the ground. Brings alive both the fossils & the scientists who study them. Ill.
