The wonder of bird migration takes a long while to sink in. Perhaps it’s the payload, but tiny birds still seem able to amaze us with their ability to fly thousands of kilometres (or even miles.)

To find evidence of how speciation can happen when there is an obvious bio-geographical boundary should be simple. This represents a first, however, for a group colonising New Guinea and evolving a greater size in several instances. The ancestry of these New Guinea geckos, large and small, has been well-traced.

The evolutionary relationships between organisms are endless, while some stand out as truly incredible. For 10 million years, mountains have moved and bills have been “paid” as pollination was accomplished by bat, bee and bird

How do males pay for their dedication to antlers, plumage or dance? In this case the effort to escape a predator is not affected by the peacock’s extravagant tail, or train. Pity the experiment involved removing it- they must have been lost without it.
