Birds evolution into huge diversity

Postby Pajarita » Mon Aug 24, 2020 10:09 am

A VERY interesting article on a study that showed that birds diversified after the mass extinction event that ended the Mesozoic ear BUT they evolved up to three times slower than dinos had and it has to do with the slow evolution of the skull and the huge changes in the skeleton!
