The Rise of Mammals

"From scratching around in the dirt to deciphering DNA—how did we get from there to here?"

This line from the National Geographic article The Rise of Mammals is as good an introduction to the article as any. Covering the evolution of such incredible animals ranging from tarsiers to
wombats, as well as topics such as the impacts of technology, the use of DNA analysis, and whether or not humans killed off the giant mammals of the ice age, this fascinating article is a tour de force of mammalian evolution! A lot of what you've heard in past lectures, and will hear in future ones is presented in this entertaining article.
