Xmas comes very early for us this year, with a tremendous guide to all our ancestors and their evolution into modern forms. You will need a subscription to Nature to read the details but we have the lowdown on the nitty-gritty of fishies and birdies too!

The polyploids among the animals are the focus of the latest research, given the vast number of plant polyploids and the potential of species that have such enhanced genetic capability!

If we take a group of islands that suffer from regular volcanic creation and then erosion back into the sea, can we gather invaluable information about how life evolves generally to fill available habitats in other biomes---- ? The answer seems to be YES we can.

Blue whales' calls give ID of new populations

Whether we want to find rare populations of crickets, bats or whales, acoustic signs are worth recording. Instead of sometimes-impossible genetic ID, call signs give often-deeper analysis of how populations differ in so-called cultures. In the case of this blue whale study, new discoveries are inevitable as the long-lived, long-generation and simply just “long” animal recovers from hunting that could easily have occurred within their lifetime!

It's a great group of animals to study when you have hundreds of different species in almost every habitat on earth. Here is a largely successful attempt to associate the crow wing shape with species dispersals and any consequent speciations.

Cancer, the edible crab, can equal the coconut crab in the force applied by its claw, but the use to which Birgus latro puts its magnificent weapon goes way beyond the opening up of coconuts.
