Researchers found similar or identical genetic mutations can emerge in separate populations of E. coli evolving in different environments for over 1000 generations, leading the team to conclude that evolution can be fairly predictable.
Species facing widespread and rapid environmental changes can sometimes evolve quickly enough to dodge the extinction bullet.
A genetically mosaic Eucalyptus tree is able to control which leaves are saved from predation because of alterations in its genes.
In a new study, evolutionary psychologist Justin Rhodes challenges the standard explanation for the evolution of men's superior spatial skills, suggesting instead that it may have been mere chance.
A biologist at Emory University says evolutionary biologists need to shift their focus from present-day molecules to synthesized, ancestral ones.
New light has been shed on a genetic variation that may have played a key role in human evolution by two studies published by an international group of researchers this week in the journal Cell.
Beneficial Mutations have still not been found in the wild, though their existence was confidently predicted in the 1940s.
The scientists, from Imperial College London, say their research brings them another step closer to a new kind of industrial revolution, where parts for these biological factories could be mass-produced.
new research from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York has found that biological networks grow in a modular manner because it’s more efficient and, in a sense, more cost effective.
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...
