A team of four undergraduate researchers have worked on a project examining macroevolutionary patterns of neck and spine evolution in mammals. The project goals are to learn more about the evolution of bipedalism in the human lineage by studying a comparative sample of mammalian species. The team of undergraduate researchers process micro-CT scans using Amira software in order to study the vertebral anatomy of small mammals.
