BIRD EVOLUTION POSTER
This delightful, colorful poster tells the story of how birds evolved in the context of the evolution of all living things. Produced for the National Aviary for Darwin 2009, this piece shows our current understanding of bird, and all of Life’s, evolution. Appearing around 100 mya, birds are the most recent animal class to evolve! Although scientists are still struggling with how each bird order relates to each other, birds have taught us, and continue to teach us, a lot about evolution!
The Spiral of Life is an innovative image that showcases the cutting edge of evolution science in an accessible and exciting way, while emphasizing the common origin and equality of all living things. The Spiral became a series of murals in several Pittsburgh cultural institutions, each piece focusing on a different aspect of the field.
