Avian development duration study

Postby Pajarita » Sat May 16, 2020 8:29 am

They studied 20 species but none are parrots... you have penguins, emus, ducks, geese, pigeons, swans, etc but not a single parrot! And this would have been a wonderful study for us to learn more about them because is about what can predict the length of the species development duration (the period of time that goes from when the baby is born until it's an adult) which, for parrots, is unusually long compared to other species of the same size (which I would propose is because of their large and super smart brain). Note: allometry means the change different parts of the body go through as they grown from babyhood to adulthood and how the body proportions change as this happens)
