RE: News flash -- No Feathers for Psittacosaurus!



Is this just another sad rerun of the same old BAND rubbish?

The answer is collagen.  What was the question?

And I don't know what is more surprising - that Gerald
Mayr should write about ornithischians, or that anyone


The abstract alone is pretty explicit that they didn't
claim any of what now has been "refuted", except some
straightforward anatomical observations - namely that
the structures were collagen and stuck out of the tail
in life. That can be argued about. But the
evolutionary implications for birds cannot be argued
about because *there were no such implications*.
