There are many good sites that are informative about the pterosaurs.  There are also a lot of strange and inaccurate sites.  This link page contains sites that are considered to be informative and useful.  Each site has been checked for its content and accuracy and only a selection of those sites that are accurate are included here. 

This selection of sites was correct in December 2012.

The use of search engines is recommended for obtaining up to date information in addition to surfing these links.  Use search keys like, pterosauria,  pterosaur,  flugsauria pterodactyl,  pteranodon,  "flying reptiles", or specific generic names of specimens.  They all give different results.  It is also worth trying different search engines.
