Re: Tree of Life webpage

Oh yeah, the thread I forgot replying to...

 Estelle Bourdon's prophaetornithid studies look as if the tropicbirds
 could make a good missing link - very autapomorphic, but apart from
 that they look as if they'd link waders to the
 stork-albatross-and-whatnot group.

One word: Metornithes.

 (David: I noted that Estelle's thesis has some nomina nuda. A few of
 them have since been resolved. Is she planning to describe the others
 anytime soon?

No idea. She's no longer here, she's now doing a postdoc with Joel Cracraft.
