Recent fossil discoveries in China have been widely hailed as clear evidence that birds had their origins in ‘feathered’ dinosaurs. But Feduccia urges us to be cautious of such hyperbolic claims, which led to ‘the ascendency of a consensus view that has quickly evolved into a dogma’. In this reassessment of the data he critically analyses existing interpretations and methodologies, as well as offering his own theories about the evolution of birds and avian flight.
