How do you make a bird? Shrink a dinosaur for 50 million years

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Large flesh-eating dinosaurs evolved into small flying birds, but it did not happen overnight. An international team of scientists on Thursday described an extraordinary evolutionary process that unfolded over a period of 50 million years in which a lineage of carnivorous dinosaurs shrank steadily and acquired numerous traits that led to the first appearance of birds. The researchers, using techniques developed by molecular biologists to reconstruct virus evolution, examined 1,500 anatomical traits in 120 different dinosaurs from the theropod group. #facebook #China #Business #Japan #Brazil #Technology #Argentina #United Kingdom #Entertainment #Mexico #opinion #university
