Re: Ostrich Wings Explain Mystery of Flightless Dinosaurs



Gee, now where have I heard that idea before?  Oh yeah:

Hartman, Scott. 2000. Primary and caudal feathers as locomotory adaptations in maniraptoran theropods. Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, Vol. 20, Supplement to No. 3. pp. 47A.

Hartman, Scott. 2005. Estimating Ancestral Habitat and Selective Pressures Leading to the Origin of Avian Flight. Abstract volume of the II Latin American Congress of Vertebrate Paleontology.

Awesome to see corroborating data from extant animals. And it's my fault of course for not having a paper in print yet, but there were a couple of extra steps that I had to look into along the way. Soon...
