"Plate" Tectonics



Now for an ornithischian question:

What is the latest ideas regarding the plate function (and attachment) of
_Stegosaurus_?  Where they as moveable as some claim?  If so, why?  I assume
they had some display purposes, but this couldn't be the only explanation, or
we'd probably see the same sizes in plates in most genera (unless one is going
to make an analogy to rainforest birds, with their varying feather
morphologies)?
