Tamara Franz-Odendaal

Understanding animal diversity; specifically the development and evolution of the craniofacial skeleton. My research combines the study of fossils (paleontology) with the study of body shape (morphology) and development in living organisms, called Evolutionary Developmental Biology. View full bio
