Ingmar Werneburg lab
Welcome & Projects
We are interested in evolutionary vertebrate morphology with a focus on reptiles and mammals. We study, using traditional histological and gross anatomical approaches, the interrelationship of ontogenetic and phylogenetic patterns within a modern conceptual and analytical framework. For that, we follow a holistic organism concept dealing with extant adult, fossil, and embryonic material. Specifically, we observe the sequence of ontogenetic features, variation, and the homology of adult and developmental structures. The latter include the chondrocranium, head and neck musculature, skull anatomy, and postcranial features. Many studies deal with turtles, lizards, and mammals in general.
