Re: Feduccia (mis)quotes me and mentions the DML in his new book



Jean-Michel,
this is not about erasing the term "bird". The key point is that birds
are NOT dinosaur-descendants - which sounds as if Dinosauria was
paraphyletic, and extinct - but ARE a line of dinosaurs. If you get
people to understand that, they are well on their way to understanding
nested hierarchies and clades in general.
