Re: New paper on pre-Archaeopteryx coelurosaurian dinosaurs
I hope that no one goes overboard about the new Xu et al. paper. As the authors
state themselves: "such a phylogenetic hypothesis would have significant
implications for the reconstruction of the theropod - bird transition but it
has yet to be tested by quantitative analysis."
Indeed, the reader may wonder why the authors would publish an alternative
phylogeny before doing any analysis.
