Long-term evolution is 'surprisingly predictable,' experiment shows
(Phys.org) —A protein-folding simulation shows that the debated theory of long-term evolution is not only possible, but that the outcomes are predictable. The Stanford experiment provides a framework for ...
Developmental biologist proposes new theory of early animal evolution, challenges basic assumptions
A New York Medical College developmental biologist whose life's work has supported the theory of evolution has developed a concept that dramatically alters one of its basic assumptions—that survival is based on a change's ...
Genomics analysis demonstrates natural selection at work

Polar bear evolution tracked climate change, new DNA study suggests
A whole-genome analysis suggests that polar bear numbers waxed and waned with climate change, and that the animals may have interbred with brown bears since becoming a distinct species millions of years ago.
UCLA biologists reveal potential 'fatal flaw' in iconic sexual selection study
(Phys.org) -- A classic study from more than 60 years ago suggesting that males are more promiscuous and females more choosy in selecting mates may, in fact, be wrong, say life scientists who are the ...
