Life on Europe

Life on Europe

Posted Sun, 25 Jan 2015 12:29:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

Deeply involved in the past, this insight into how the archipelago of Europe survived the terrible disaster of the K-Pg boundary is essential reading- if you are a North American dinosaur, that is!

There are so many new species out there waiting to be found and it is essential we find them before so many become extinct. Here is a wonderful island that will suffer the fate of the rest of its nation, if we can’t stop the habitat destruction with which Asia has replaced its uniquely biodiverse forests.

We’re having a whale of a time, enjoying a paper that tries to work out how the pygmy right whale became neotenic. The history of whale fossils is one of big gaps and they cause the problems in resolving ancient relationships still.

How will we tell our children about the dangers of life? The gibbons have evolved a language of sounds and songs that possibly resemble those we first used to warn our offspring of the leopard or elephant danger.

Shark self-conservation

Shark self-conservation

The conservation of are animals has many and varied techniques, some of which could be exclusive to one species. The maintenance of living sperm within the female body after mating is a device that is useful to ensure diversity. In this case, it could prove useful when the last living male shark is killed and a mated female still exists.

Whale-watching is varied. You can watch the biggies or find your way north to where most killer whales patrol. Dolphins are probably the easiest to see, if you are lucky to live in the right area, but the orca really ticks boxes for conservation, huge intelligence and quite a glam. appearance (but not in the Aquarium, please!)
