The social code: Deciphering the genetic basis of hymenopteran social behavior

Since Darwin, biologists have been fascinated by the evolution of sociality. In its most extreme form, eusocial species exhibit a division of labor in which certain individuals perform reproductive tasks such as egg laying, while others play non-repr.....»»

Starry tail tells the tale of dwarf galaxy evolution

A giant diffuse tail of stars has been discovered emanating from a large, faint dwarf galaxy. The presence of a tail indicates that the galaxy has experienced recent interaction with another galaxy. This is an important clue for understanding how so.....»»

Rapid plant evolution may make coastal regions more susceptible to flooding and sea level rise, study shows

Evolution has occurred more rapidly than previously thought in the Chesapeake Bay wetlands, which may decrease the chance that coastal marshes can withstand future sea level rise. Researchers at the University of Notre Dame and collaborators have dem.....»»

Fossil teeth reveal how brains developed in utero over millions of years of human evolution

Fossilized bones help tell the story of what human beings and our predecessors were doing hundreds of thousands of years ago. But how can you learn about important parts of our ancestors' life cycle—like pregnancy or gestation—that leave no obvio.....»»

Large mammals shaped the evolution of humans in Africa, says ecologist

That humans originated in Africa is widely accepted. But it's not generally recognized how unique features of Africa's ecology were responsible for the crucial evolutionary transitions from forest-inhabiting fruit-eater to savanna-dwelling hunter. Th.....»»

What crocodile DNA reveals about the Ice Age

What drives crocodile evolution? Is climate a major factor or changes in sea levels? Determined to find answers to these questions, researchers from McGill University discovered that while changing temperatures and rainfall had little impact on the c.....»»

Study of bryophytes reveals evolution of genetic pathways governing plant branching

Non-vascular bryophytes live in colonies that cover the ground and resemble tiny forests. In a real forest, plants compete for light in different layers of the canopy. If a plant does not receive enough sunlight, it stops lateral branching and instea.....»»

Researchers derive a unified topological speed limit for the evolution of physical states

Physical systems evolve at a particular speed, which depends on various factors including the system's so-called topological structure (i.e., spatial properties that are preserved over time despite any physical changes that occur). Existing methods f.....»»

Could feral animals in Australia become distinct species? Some early signs that it"s possible

You might think evolution is glacially slow. At a species level, that's true. But evolution happens every time organisms produce offspring. The everyday mixing of genes—combined with mutations—throws up new generations upon which "selection press.....»»

Baboons "crouch and sprint" to take standing up in their stride

At some point in our evolution, humans gave up walking on four limbs, yet all of our ape cousins continue sauntering on four, resorting occasionally to two. Peter Aerts from the University of Antwerp, Belgium, is curious about how primates walk. When.....»»

Sympatric or micro-allopatric speciation in glacial lake? Genomic islands support neither

Speciation is one of the core issues in evolutionary biology. Sympatric speciation is the evolution of reproductive isolation without geographic barriers in which new species arise from a single ancestral population. However, bidirectional gene flow.....»»
