Artist's Description

Illustration showing the rough lineage leading from basal/primitive coelurosaurian theropods to advanced carinated and modern birds, drawn for A Field Guide to Mesozoic Birds and Other Winged Dinosaurs.

Obviously inspired by the famous “Descent of Man”, this necessarily includes the same caveat that evolution is not a straight line (as is plain from the rest of the book!). However, each species can trace an unbroken lineage back through time via successive common ancestors, and this is an attempt to approximate that using species as basal as possible along each step of bird evolution (also inspired by the “view lineage” feature of PhyloPic).

Coloration inspired by similar, older illustration of the same idea…
