This website features the UC Museum of Paleontology Vertebrate Flight Exhibit created by John R. Hutchinson, a graduate student in Dr. Kevin Padian's lab at UC-Berkeley. This site serves as a great introduction for teachers and students interested in the natural history, mechanics, or other aspects of vertebrate flight. The exhibit works like a tutorial organized under the heading: Learn the Secrets of Flight. Each section flows from one to the next, beginning with the Introduction of Flight, and including other sections like The Physics of Flight, The Evolution of Flight, and more. The sections are fairly concise and brief, but include links for key terms to more information located at other museum sites. A strong finish, the final flight section includes sub-sections on Pterosaurian, Avian, and Chiropteran Flight accompanied by illustrated diagrams and other images.
