Genetic Distinctness To Guide Global Bird Conservation
2014-04-11 12:08:15

Cell Press In the midst of today's global extinction crisis, decisions about conservation should include prioritizing how best to preserve as much of the tree of life as possible. So say researchers who report in the Cell Press journal Current Biology on the first application of an approach to identify the most evolutionarily distinct of the world's 9,993 bird species. At the very top of their list of the most evolutionary distinct birds is the South American oilbird, which represents...

Carnivore size and range, but not conservation status matters to researchers Scientists tend to study larger carnivores with larger geographic ranges than those with greater adaptability and broader diets, according to results published April 2, 2014, in the open access journal PLOS ONE by Zoe Brooke and colleagues from Zoological Society of London. Scientists need to evaluate research efforts and their effectiveness in order to meet the conservation needs of a wider range of species...

2014-03-31 08:41:24

Wildlife Conservation Society A pair of new studies from the Wildlife Conservation Society, Idaho State University, and the University of Nevada Reno look at the surprising variety of factors that prevent two closely related species of woodrats from becoming a single hybrid species despite the existence of hybrid individuals where the two species come into contact. After finding that two closely related species, the desert and Bryant's woodrats, could interbreed and produce hybrid...

Sea Anemone genetics

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers lead by evolutionary and developmental biologist Ulrich Technau at the University of Vienna say that a sea anemone has a genomic landscape that is half animal, half plant. Developmental biologists found that the genetic landscape of sea anemones features complex regulatory elements similar to that of fruit flies or other animal model systems. However, they also discovered that sea anemones are more similar to plants rather...
