Indoor Program – Theresa Feo – Feather Development and Differentiation

October 9, 2014 @ 7:30 pm

Clothes may make the man, but feathers make the bird. Birds sport thousands of feathers that come in myriad shapes and sizes for various uses including flying, attracting a mate, and even carrying water. The diversity of feathers is stunning but it is not always clear how the different feather shapes are produced. Teresa Feo will present her ongoing research to uncover how feathers grow into different shapes. She is a 4th year Ph.D. candidate in Richard Prum’s Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at Yale. Through her focus on feather development she has worked extensively with Chris Clark (a previous speaker for the NHBC) on a project to document hummingbird courtship displays and feather sounds
