More than 300 years after its extinction, an international team of researchers has published the first three-dimensional online atlas of the skeleton of this flightless bird, an icon among extinct species in recent human history.

Part of the research has been conducted at the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont (ICP) by the dutch paleontologist Hanneke Meijer .
