This book explores the bio-molecular aspects of avian biology as well as the anatomy of dinosaurs. It bridges the gap between those who study bird fossils and those who study the living animals. The first section reviews the early ancestry of birds and the conditions under which they and their nearest relatives diversified in the Cretaceous.
