"Avelution" Birds in the Development of Darwin's Theory of Evolution  (Exhibits (Museum, Gardens, ...))

Naturalist Charles Darwin was strongly influenced by avian examples while he was developing the Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection. Birds are vertebrates in Class Aves, so the coined term "avelution" in this exhibition captures the idea of this influence. The exhibition will showcase examples of birds from MSU Museum collections, including many species that Darwin encountered in Patagonia; the domestic pigeon and chicken breeds that he studied while he was investigating artificial selection, and a Michigan example of adaptive radiation among finches.
