By merging fossil evidence with a range of new technologies and methods, Julia Clarke and her colleagues are piecing together the story of how dinosaurs went through the adaptations and evolutionary tradeoffs that produced the vast diversity seen today in their living descendants, the 10,000 species of birds on earth. Clarke will share new insights from the fossil record and describe how the brains, bodies and behavior of birds help reveal how their dinosaur ancestors looked, sounded and moved in the real Jurassic world.
