Molecular methods are not sufficient in systematics and evolution

  • PDF
1000pa (June 7, 2010) — Modern evolutionary systematists often use molecular methods, such like mitochondrial DNA analysis, to differentiate between species and subspecies. These molecular methods are a flashy symbol of modern science cleverly exploited by media to draw interest of public and by laboratory scientists to draw attention of government funding agencies.

However, current research indicates that the picture painted by these...

X-rays reveal chemical link between birds and dinosaurs

  • PDF
1000pa (May 11, 2010) — Researchers have found that a 150-million-year-old "dinobird" fossil, long thought to contain nothing but fossilized bone and rock, has been hiding remnants of the animal's original chemistry. Using the bright X-ray beam of the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource, located at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, an international team of paleontologists, geochemists and physicists...

Researchers use entire islands in the Bahamas to test survival of the fittest

  • PDF
1000pa (May 12, 2010) — By using entire islands as experimental laboratories, two Dartmouth biologists have performed one of the largest manipulations of natural selection ever conducted in a wild animal population. Their results, published online on May 9 by the journal Nature, show that competition among lizards is more important than predation by birds and snakes when it comes to survival of the fittest lizard.

Plumage-color traits more extreme over time

  • PDF
1000pa (May 17, 2010) — Ever since Darwin, researchers have tried to explain the enormous diversity of plumage colour traits in birds. Now researchers at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, are adding something new to this particular field of research, which is so rich in tradition, by demonstrating how a bird can become red instead of yellow.

Sixteen years ago, Malte Andersson, a professor at the University of Gothenburg, published the...

Darwin's finch and the evolution of smell

  • PDF
1000pa (Apr. 6, 2010) — Darwin's finches -- some 14 related species of songbirds found on the Galapagos and Cocos Islands -- will forever be enshrined in history for having planted the seeds of the theory of evolution through natural selection. Today, exactly 150 years after Darwin's famous book, finches can still teach us a lesson about evolution. A large, international group of researchers, among them Prof. Doron Lancet and Dr. Tsviya...
