Legs that Walk and Wings that Fly: The Evolution of Limb Musculature
Limbs in vertebrate animals evolved 400 million years ago when our ancestors left the water and first ventured on to land. Today birds fly, sea turtles swim, and people play tennis using muscles that first developed in those ancient relatives. How have limbs diversified across all these descendants? Researcher Daniel Smith Paredes discusses what we can learn about the evolutionary history of arm and leg muscles from embryonic development in different species.

This event will include live English captioning.
