Commentary on cladistics

Commentary on cladistics | Zientzia | Scoop.it

Certainly there are many extinct creatures in the fossil record, and it is not surprisingly that they differ in some ways from the birds at our backyard feeders. But there is no justification in considering an obviously feathered animal to be anything but a bird, other than the wish to establish an evolutionary origin for birds and feathers."
