    What art thou, LittLe Bird? Developmental Mechanisms for the Origin and Evolution of Birds.

    Lecture by Arkhat Abzhanov, Associate Professor of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard

    We might think robins are simply a common backyard bird, but actually they represent one of the most unusual, successful, and abundant animals (the order Aves) in Earth’s history. The new science of evolutionary developmental biology (“evo-devo”) sheds fascinating light on the evolution of birds’ highly distinct skulls with toothless beaks, and on how modern birds can generate an endless array of beak shapes.
