hello everyone,

the question, why birds don't have teeth, has occupied many scientists
through the years, and has generated a variety of hypotheses. But a new
idea has been proposed that may explain both why birds don't have teeth and
why they underwent such an explosive radiation after the extinction of all
non-avian dinosaurs. The hypothesis needs more work, but it's a paradigm
shift that will trigger a lot of new research.
