Link Between Global Warming And Evolution Revealed

While the effects of climate change on species’ geographic range and population dynamics are increasingly understood, scientists know little about how species respond to climate change at the genetic level. Now, a new study by Elizabeth Hadly from Stanford University appearing in PLoS BIOLOGY, suggests that climate change can shape genetic diversity. The researchers have […]

Evolution Itself Subject To Natural Selection




Life has evolved to evolve. That’s the conclusion drawn by two Rice University scientists who have designed a computer simulation to test the idea that evolvability – the likelihood of genetic mutation – is a trait that can itself be favored or disfavored through the process of natural selection. The study appears in the Proceedings […]
