Evolution – 2 billion years late ?!

Recently, the University of California, Riverside provided some materials that shocked me, to say the least. According to that research, scientists from all around the world have reconstructed changes in Earth’s ancient ocean chemistry during a broad sweep of geological time, from about 2.5 to 0.5 billion years ago. What they found was that the lack of oxygen and molybdenum (a heavy

Language Feature Unique To Human Brain Identified

There’s always been a lot of effort put into understanding what (if something) makes humans superior to other man-like mammals. The science world seems to be split into two camps, which can’t agree with each other. Now, researchers at the Yerkes National Primate Research Center, Emory University, have identified a language feature unique to the human brain which gives some

First ‘rule’ of evolution suggests life will become more and more complex

Scientists from the University of Bath have revealed what may very well be the first law of evolution, which has a huge importance. The study was published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and it shows the fact that evolution drives animals to become increasingly more complex. They analyzed fossils from the crustacean family tree and drawed conclusions

Cities Force Plants to Evolve

Mankind alteres the balance that nature has and often forces species to evolve quickly to the abrupt changes it brings. A clear and very actual example of this is represented by plants. As concrete slabs chop up more and more of our urban landscapes, plants are forced to evolve in ways that may not benefit them in the long run,

Their history has also been connected with the hospice at
