Four undergraduate researchers are currently assisting with a project examining macroevolutionary patterns of neck and spine evolution in mammals: Maya Bharatiya, Nikki Chati, Sydney MacGregor, and Michaela Winkeler. The goal of the project is to use a comparative approach to learn more about the evolution of bipedalism in the human lineage. These researchers process micro-CT scans using Amira software so that we can study the vertebral anatomy of very small mammals.
