Rise of the Birds: 200 Million Years of Avian Evolution Class
Since birds first arose in the Jurassic Period, they have become incredibly diverse and successful, spreading to every part of the planet. In this class, Dr. Ivan Phillipsen will take you on a tour of bird evolution from their dinosaur origins to the present-day processes of hybridization and genetic divergence among populations. Topics introduced will include the origin of feathers, anatomical and physiological adaptations for flight, adaptive radiations, beak adaptations, flightlessness, phylogeny, and population genetics.
