FSU:  Flying Dinosaurs? Paper examines path from dinosaur to bird

A new review by a team of paleontologists and biologists, including a Florida State University professor, gives a modern look at where birds come from and how they evolved from dinosaurs.

“We’re looking at what points in time that feathers, flight, and modern avian physiology and behavior evolved across the transition from dinosaurs to birds,” said Florida State University Professor Gregory M. Erickson, a co-author on the paper.

Once the topic of science fiction movies, the ancestry of birds has become ripe for scientific exploration and researchers have been able to trace their lineage.
