GET UPDATES FROM Dr. John R. Hutchinson
Dr. John R. Hutchinson is a Professor of Evolutionary Biomechanics at the Royal Veterinary College, in the Structure & Motion Laboratory and Department of Comparative Biomedical Sciences. He leads a research team studying how animal anatomy, size and function in locomotion have evolved in different groups. In particular, he has studied how giant land animals evolved and how their size influenced their athletic abilities, including key studies of tyrannosaurs and elephants. His work has helped show how elephants evolved peculiar aspects of their anatomy and gait, how birds evolved their unusual bipedal locomotion, and how bony animals first moved onto land.
