    • 1998 April 10, John Ruben, “Almost All Things Dinosaurian[1], Science, volume 280, number 5361, DOI:10.1126/science.280.5361.224: 
      For example, in the chapter "Feathered Dinosaurs," we are told that some dinosaurs may have been endothermic because the Chinese theropod Sinosauropteryx possessed nonaerodynamic "feathers," each of which, like modern bird feathers, seems to have been composed of "a central rhachis and branching barbs" (p. 241).
