Latest Evolution Stories
Scientists have puzzled for centuries over how and why multicellular organisms evolved the almost universal trait of using single cells, such as eggs and sperm, to reproduce.
A new study of butterflies found that it’s genetically easier to spin off into a new species than it may have once been thought, even if the two species remain close and interbreed with one another.
A range of examples suggests a lack of information about their fellows can favor cooperation and prevent conflict among animals — and even among genes
An international team of researchers has discovered that the Earth’s oxygen content 2.1 billion years ago was the same as it was during the so-called Cambrian explosion that occurred approximately 542 years ago and resulted in the appearance of most major animal phyla.
Highlighting an important but unexplored area of evolution, scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have found evidence that, over hundreds of millions of years, an essential protein has evolved chiefly by changing how it moves, rather than by changing its basic molecular structure.

The story of evolution sometimes circles back to its roots as biologists announced they have recently discovered a new species in the very location that gave birth to what we now know as the Theory of Evolution.
A new study explores one supposed flaw in Darwin’s theory – the so-called ‘big bang’ of evolution that took place during the so-called Cambrian explosion 540 to 520 million years ago.
Convergent evolution – the evolution of similar traits in drastically different types of creatures – is widespread not just at the physical level but also at the genetic level, according to new research published in this week’s edition of the journal Nature.
Paleontology or Palaeontology is the scientific study of prehistoric life, including the study of fossils to determine the organisms evolution and interactions with each other and their environments. Paleontological observations have been documented as far back as 5th century BC. The science became established in the 18th century as a result of Georges Cuvier’s work on comparative anatomy, and it developed quickly within the 19th century. The term itself comes from Greek palaios, meaning...
