The diversity of flying squirrels nicely supports the BCF idea that once a
particularly beneficial volant adaptation appeared, this fostered a
mini-explosion of similar dino-bird species, which in turn made the
appearance of the next volant adaptation more likely. When you have dozens of
hundreds of related species in competition with one another and the
environment, the likelihood of evolution of new features can only be
enhanced.
