Re: CHATTERJEE'S BIRD BOOK



S. Chatterjee is the sole author of The Rise of Birds. I read the first 
three chapters without having read the foreward and began to fear the 
focus of the entire book was Protoavis. The foreward helps put things 
into context. Here the general skepticism regarding Protoavis is 
addressed and it is pointed out that Chatterjee is not giving a pivotal 
taxonomic position to Protoavis. He sticks to a arboreal theropod origin 
for birds.
