Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Frances Crews James (born September 29, 1930) is an American academic ecologist. She served as a Professor of Biological Sciences at Florida State University. She studied geographic variation in the size and shape of birds, leading to transplant experiments with red-winged blackbirds and to tests of the theoretical assumptions underlying selection models. She is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. In 2009, with John Pourtless, she published an Ornithological Monograph entitled Cladistics and the Origin of Birds: A Review and Two New Analyses. In their monograph they argue that both the "early-archosaur" and "crocodylomorph" hypotheses are at least as well supported as the BMT (birds are maniraptoran theropod dinosaurs) hypothesis.show more
