New forum now dead

New forum now dead

Okay, so for those of you who don't the know the forum I advertised earlier was started because a good chunk of the old forum was angry with the way it was being run. The gripes people had have since been resolved, and as such there is no need for the new forum. So if you're still interested in joining a community focused on speculative evolution, come join http://s1.zetaboards.com/Conceptual_Evolution/index/, which is where we have all returned to.

Promotion for a new forum

Promotion for a new forum

Hi there everyone, If there are any readers of this journal entry interested in Speculative Evolution, I have an announcement for you. Some buddies and I are setting up a new forum made for speculative evolution buffs such as ourselves. You can find it here; http://w11.zetaboards.com/Speculative_Biology/index/. As you can no doubt tell the forum is still in it's infancy. Nonetheless we hope to create a vibrant community with a more informal feel to it than other similar sites out there. So if your interested, check us out! We have a section where guests can post, so you can test the waters before deciding if you want to join or not.

My own personal guess on the evolution of feathers

My own personal guess on the evolution of feathers

As I am pretty sure you are all aware, Tianyulong completely muddied the picture on the evolution of feathers. As many other deviantartists have shared their theories on the evolution of feathers I decided I would share my own guess... I like many others believe that protofeathers are basal to Ornithodira. However I believe that they were originally intended for only one purpose; display. If I am correct than the first ornithodirans would have had just a few EBBFS (or whatever they are called) on their tail similar to Psittacosaurus but sparser. In at least three lineages (pterosaurs, coelurosaurs and heterodontosaurs) these display feathers
