 Feathers Make  the Bird, but what Makes the Feathers
 
Feathers are an  integral feature of birds that distinguishes them from other creatures.  Feathers are used for a variety of functions, such as flight, controlling  body temperature, and mating display.  Jacob Musser, a Ph.D candidate in  Yale's Deptof Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, will discuss how his research on the  genetic instructions for growing feathers have shed new light on their  early evolution.
