>Then were all small theropods aboreal?

Subject to corrections from others here, it is my understanding that we
don't know for a fact if ANY theropods, Archaeopteryx included, were
arboreal.  It seems (to me anyway) not at all unlikely that some were, but
in the absence of a defining suite of characters for an arboreal tetrapod I
don't see how we can ever be sure.
