Oviraptorosauria & Avialae Definitions
Hello Dino Pals,
I have a few questions about the definitions of
Ovi'sauria: I've searched the archives & every time I
read an e-mail, I get different answers to my question
every time. Here are the ones i have found:
(Oviraptor > Neornithes)
Sereno 1998 & 1999 (sensu 2000)
Currie & Padian 1997
(Oviraptor + Chirostenotes)
Which one was the first explicitly defined?
Avialae: I knew that in 1986, Gauthier defined it as
(Archaeoteryx + Aves), but I also heard that he
defined the more-common stem definition earlier that
year. What's the scoop on that?
Thanks in Advance,
