Abstract: Discusses a study on complete mitochondrial genome sequences of two extinct moas, focusing on how these clarify the evolution of ratites. Ratites as large, flightless birds from the Southern Hemisphere; Importance of understanding these birds origins, in connection with the role of plate tectonics in distributing modern birds and animals. Studies determination of the moas' genome sequences, along with a 1,000-base-pair sequence from an extinct Madagascan elephant-bird.
