New Maderson feather paper



Not to be outdone by Ruben and Quick, another branch of the BANDit tree has published a detailed description of feather regeneration:

To be sure, while the paper is peppered with potshots at Prum and unneccesary editorializing of their views on proper citation and systemmic literature errors (who says they don't have a sense of irony?) the bountiful descriptive work looks like it will be a useful contribution to the literature. It does not discuss bird origins at all, but I expect to see a Science Daily interview at any moment where they talk about how bird feathers could not have evolved from dinofuzz...
