From British daily The Morning Star:
Dinosaur Sinosauropteryx had simple bristles – precursors of feathers – in alternate orange and white rings down its tail and the early bird Confuciusornis had patches of white, black and orange-brown colouring, University of Bristol research revealed.
Boffins involved with the research, to be published in journal Nature on Thursday, discovered that feathers came before wings, so may not have originally been used for flight or insulation but for display.
Beating the drinking age would have been quite a challenge during the Cretaceous period. New fossils uncovered in northeastern China show that two specimens of the same species of dinosaur, one juvenile and one adult, featured distinctly different feathers. Though the juvenile version of the genus, Similicaudipteryx, sported ribbon-like wing and tail feathers, its adult counterpart featured feathers resembling quills, researchers report tomorrow in Nature. Even more striking, the younger specimen’s wing feathers are considerably smaller than its tail plumage, while the elder showed much less of a contrast. Such differences are virtually unknown in modern birds. The researchers suggest that for as-yet-unknown reasons, developmental diversity in feathers was lost in evolution: here.
