The genome of Galapagos finches have been sequenced for the first time in an international collaboration between the Genome 10K project and BGI.
From how massive humpbacks glide through the sea with ease to the efficient way fungal spores fly, applied mathematicians at Harvard have excavated the equations behind a variety of complex phenomena.
Unlike Hawaii and other island groups, no native bird has gone extinct in the Galapagos Islands, although some are in danger.
Scientists at Scripps Research make molecules that evolve and compete, mimicking behavior of Darwin's finches.
Finches on the Galapagos Islands that inspired Charles Darwin to develop the concept of evolution are now helping confirm it - by evolving.
