It’s all about the tail.
This means being carnivores must have been an excellent solution for these plants.
Researchers have found a very old and “alien like” insect and they’ve decided it doesn’t fit anywhere in the current tree of life.
Real-time evolution, what more proof do you need?
Our beloved hands are coded by the same genes that make fish fins.
Kinda looks like an end-boss in an RPG.
Looks like happy hour isn’t just a human thing.
The discovery highlights how trait functions can change with evolution.
University of Rochester researchers developed a new evolutionary model that suggests human intelligence developed to meet the demands of our infants, in a self-reinforcing cycle: bigger brains led to shorter pregnancies, requiring parents to have even bigger brains.
A deep, low pitch voice is often sought after in a man, but a new study suggests this characteristic might have evolved to intimidate other males, not attract females.
Found in only eight caves on the border of Thailand and Myanmar, this eyeless fish can walk.
What does a weird tendon on your inner wrist have to do with evolution? This video explains.
Researchers have manipulated the genome of chicken embryos so that they develop dinosaur-like bones in their lower legs.
A new study measuring the forces that shape bacterial genomes determined that a difference in efficiency of hundredth of a percent is sufficient to determine the winners and losers in the evolutionary race.
The latest, most complete tree is the result of a three-year effort by researchers from over a dozen institutions from around the world. They combined tens of thousands of diagrams into one single tree, most easily read as a circle.
New research shows that the first vertebrates had a surprisingly easy time adapting from fins to legs.
