Embryos of Living Dinosaurs: Interpreting and Resoliving Developmental Evidence (Hardback)

Awaiting publication


The dinosaur-bird transition has been intensively studied using both fossil and embryological evidence. In recent years, the notion that birds are living dinosaurs has become the mainstream opinion in paleontology. But some embryologists and ornithologists remain skeptical and accuse paleontologists of ignoring conflicting evidence. This book resolves these conflicts. Careful re-evaluation of those features in seeming contradiction reveal that such characteristics actually support and corroborate the mainstream view that birds are in fact members of a dinosaurian lineage - they are living dinosaurs.

Key Selling features:

Explores the evidence supporting the dinosaur ancestry of birds

Illustrates how fossil and developmental evidence can be integrated

Reviews the specific nature of putative conflicting evidence

Synthesizes and resolves different sources of evidence

Alexander Omar Vargas Milne was born 1977 in Auckland, New Zealand, but has lived most of his life in Santiago, Chile. He studied biology at the University of Chile, where he became interested in evolutionary developmental biology. For his PhD, he decided to study embryos of birds as a key to understand their evolution from dinosaurs. He carried out postdoctoral research at University of Wisconsin and Yale before founding in 2008 the Ontogeny and Phylogeny Lab at the University of Chile. Along with students and collaborators, he has made several contributions on the nascent topic of dinosaur-bird evo-devo. He has also contributed to the re-foundation of vertebrate paleontology in Chile.
