Here is a good introduction to the basics of pterosaurs. Note the similarities to birds.

It mentions many interesting aspects, including the sternum, the pneumatic bones, the pteroid bone, the semi-circular canals, the flocculus etc. Also it includes the distinction between the primitive Rhamphorhynchoids and the advanced Pterodactyloids.
