arboreal theropods



if we are going to discuss arboreal theropods (BCF vs. BADD), then i for
one would like to know alot more about the trees that were around at the
time.  i know there were some conifers and numerous cycads and cycadoids,
ginkgos, and tree ferns.  but my question is:  could any of these supported
large or even medium sized theropods?  to answer the possibility of arboreality,
i think we need to consult the paleobotanists for more info.
