BOGDANOVICH Igor Aleksandrovich

Senior Research Scientist

In 1978 has ended the Kiev University of T.G. Shevchenko. In Department of Evolutionary Morphology of Vertebrates works since 1976.

Results of functional morphology studies of birds locomotor apparatus were stated in the dissertation and monographic work Terrestrial locomotion apparatus of Tetraonidae and other Galliformes. Morpho-ecologic character. Morphobiological method of research, experience of which accumulated in the study of neontological material used in the annex to the paleontological material. Research interests mainly focuse now on the origin of birds locomotor apparatus, flight and birds as class.
