Dr. Daniel Ksepka is a vertebrate paleontologist that works at North Carolina State University. Dan has done a lot of research in studying penguin fossils, and we discuss the evolutionary history of penguins as determined from the fossil record. Dan also has a fantastic blog called March of the Fossil Penguins and you can follow him on Twitter @ksepkalab.
There is also a great 50-minute lecture online in which Dan provides a comprehensive overview on penguin evolution. It’s really, really good.
