Re: Archeopteryx what is bird or dinosaur?
I believe the question being asked here is whether Archaeopteryx was a
bird or a non-avian dinosaur---something I wonder myself, and
paleontologists have apparently yet to confidently determine.
That's a complex interplay of definition and discovery. Given the same
phylogenetic position, Archie is or is not a bird depending on the
definition of Aves.
