MUTANT CHICKENS HAVE TEETH
MUTANT CHICKENS HAVE TEETH, according to reports in ScienceNOW 21 Feb 2006 and Scientific American, 22 Feb 2006. Chicken embryos with a mutation called "talpid2" have been found to grown tiny conical protuberances on their jaws similar in shape to crocodile teeth. The discovery was made by Matthew Harris of the University of Wisconsin when he took a close look at an embryo's beak that had fallen off. The mutation usually causes embryos to die before 12 days of development, before their...   Click here for more...

MUTATION TURNS FRIEND TO FOE
MUTATION TURNS FRIEND TO FOE, as described in ScienceNOW 29 Mar 2006. Many plants and fungi share a symbiotic relationship that enhances the life of both, but some fungi are very destructive of plants. A group of scientists led by Barry Scott, a plant ecologist at Massey University in Palmerston North New Zealand studied a fungus named Epichloe that lives in ryegrass plants. As the ryegrass leaves grow the fungus sends out strands called hyphae which live between the cells in the leaves. When th...   Click here for more...

MUTATIONS ARE US

MUTATIONS ARE US, according to reports in BBC News 2 Sept 2009, and Current Biology 15 Sept 2009. Researchers in China and England have looked at thousands of genes in the Y chromosomes of two Chinese men who were known to have shared a common ancestor who was born in 1805. They looked at the number of differences between the two men, and considering the size of the human genome, the researchers have estimated that each person carries between 100 and 200 new mutations. The BBC article ...   Click here for more...

NATURAL SELECTION IS ORIGINAL SIN

NATURAL SELECTION IS ORIGINAL SIN claims Nobel laureate Christian De Duve in an interview in New Scientist, 26 Feb 2011, p27. De Duve claims natural selection has enabled man to become the most successful species on the planet, but the same processes will lead to our destruction through our depletion of natural resources and destruction of habitat. De Duve’s dire prediction is based on the fact that natural selection has no foresight, and he claims this has become coded into our genes ...   Click here for more...

NEW DISEASE CAUSING GERM FOUND
NEW DISEASE CAUSING GERM FOUND, according to a report in news@nature, 14 April 2006. Scientists at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) have identified a previously unknown bacterium in the lymph nodes of people suffering from a rare immune disorder called chronic granulomatous disease (CGD). So far the bug has only been shown to make people sick if they have CGD, but antibodies to the bacterium have been found in healthy people. This indicates that the bug has invad...   Click here for more...

NEW HUMAN DISEASES RAPIDLY EMERGING
NEW HUMAN DISEASES RAPIDLY EMERGING according to a report in BBC online news 20 Feb 2006. Scientists speaking at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) conference claim that new infectious diseases are emerging at faster rates than ever before. Every year scientists discover one or two new infectious diseases in humans. Many of these such as HIV (AIDS) and avian influenza (bird flu) are coming from animals. Professor Mark Woolhouse, an epidemiologist at the University ...   Click here for more...

NEW ROO SPECIES IN NEW GUINEA
NEW ROO SPECIES IN NEW GUINEA reported The Independent Online Edition, 7 Feb 2006. A group of scientists led by Bruce Beehler of Conservation International have discovered many new species of animals, birds and plants whilst exploring the upper slopes of the Foja Mountains in western New Guinea. The region has not been colonised by local tribes or previously explored by visiting scientists. Among the animals they found a new species of tree kangaroo, named the golden mantled tree kangaroo. T...   Click here for more...

NEW TYPE OF DINO FEATHER FOUND

NEW TYPE OF DINO FEATHER FOUND, according to reports in Science News 12 Jan 2009 and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 20 Jan 2009, p832. Chinese palaeontologists have found two fossils of an early Cretaceous dinosaur named Beipiaosaurus.” They describe their findings as: “Here, we report a feather type in two specimens of the basal therizinosaur Beipiaosaurus, in which each individual feather is represented by a single broad filament.” The filament...   Click here for more...

NO EVOLUTION FOR ALGAE
NO EVOLUTION FOR ALGAE, according to a report in Nature, vol 431, p566, 30 Sep 2004. Sinead Collins and Graham Bell of McGill University believe that as atmospheric carbon dioxide will increase over the next century, and plants may adapt to the changing atmosphere. Therefore "such evolved plant communities of the next century are likely to be genetically different from contemporary communities." To test this theory they grew "Chlamydomonas", a single celled green alga ...   Click here for more...

NON-RANDOM RIPPLE PROBLEM
NON-RANDOM RIPPLE PROBLEM reported in New Scientist, 30 April 2005, p19. The Big Bang theory says the universe was formed by sudden expansion of space which produced hot and cold spots in the cosmic microwave radiation formed from random quantum fluctuations. Therefore, the distribution of these fluctuations should be random. David Larson and Benjamin Wandelt of the university of Illinois, Urbana-Champagne have analysed data from Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) and found "a su...   Click here for more...

NUTCRACKER TEETH CHALLENGE EVOLUTIONARY ADAPTATION
NUTCRACKER TEETH CHALLENGE EVOLUTIONARY ADAPTATION, according to an article in EurekAlert, 29 April 2008 and PLoS ONE 30 April 2008. “Nutcracker Man” is the nickname given to Paranthropus boisei, an extinct ape-like creature, believed to be a relative of human ancestors. The nickname came from its huge robust jaw, extensive area of jaw muscle attachment on the cranium and “the biggest, flattest cheek teeth and the thickest enamel of any known hominin.” These findings led scientists to bel...   Click here for more...

OUTER SPACE, OUT OF LIFE
OUTER SPACE, OUT OF LIFE as most scientists at International Conference on Astrobiology at the NASA's AMES Research Centre last week, dismissed the Martian rock evidence, disclaimed "new" planets as unsuitable for life, and were pessimistic about the evolutionary significance of tiny bugs discovered in harsh environments on earth. British paleontologist Simon Conway Morris, told the conference "I don't think there is anything out there at all except ourselves". University of Pennsylvania astrono...   Click here for more...

PARALLEL EVOLUTION IN AUSSIE PLANTS

PARALLEL EVOLUTION IN AUSSIE PLANTS reported in ScienceShots 5 June 2012 and ABC News in Science 6 June 2012. Flowering plants attract pollinating insects with their bright colours and, according to ScienceShots: “Scientists have even shown that, in the Northern Hemisphere, flowers' coloring patterns evolved specifically to meet the nuances of insect vision”. However, the same scientists also believe Australian plants have been geographically isolated for 34 million years, which they claim is...   Click here for more...

PEOPLE “TIRED” OF CLIMATE CLAIMS

PEOPLE “TIRED” OF CLIMATE CLAIMS, according to a report in BBC News, 10 Sept 2009. Researchers at Cardiff University surveyed 551 people, from a range of ages and backgrounds, between September and November last year (2008) and revealed increasing scepticism about man-made climate change. They found that compared with previous surveys twice as many people now agree that “claims that human activities are changing the climate are exaggerated.” Forty percent of the people surveyed believed that ...   Click here for more...

PINE TREES WIN FROM HIGHER CO2
PINE TREES WIN FROM HIGHER CO2 according to Science Daily, 4 Aug 2009 in an article entitled ‘Higher Carbon Dioxide May Give Pine Trees A Competitive Edge’ with promo blurb: “Pine trees grown for 12 years in air one-and-a-half times richer in carbon dioxide than today's levels, produced twice as many seeds of at least as good a quality as those growing under normal conditions.”

PITCHER PLANTS GO BATTY

PITCHER PLANTS GO BATTY, as described in reports in Biology Letters 26 Jan 2011, doi: 10.1098/rsbl.2010.1141 and ScienceNOW 25 Jan 2011 and BBC Earth News 26 Jan 2011. Pitcher plants are so named because they have elongated goblet shaped leaves that attract insects with aroma and visual patterns and then trap them in fluid in the base of the pitcher. Because the plants get nutrients from digested insects they are able to grow in acid bogs that would not otherwise provide enough nutrie...   Click here for more...

REAL DINO FEATHER PHOTOS

REAL DINO FEATHER PHOTOS claims palaeontologist Mark Norell of the American Museum of Natural History, New York, in a report to Nature Vol 416, p.36, 7th March 2002. Norell and a team of Chinese colleagues describe a dromeosaur fossil collected in the Liaoning Province, China. The report includes two photos, one of which does show imprints of some fibres organised in a symmetrical feather-like pattern. However, some scientists are not impressed. Storrs Olsen, Senior Zoologist at the Na...   Click here for more...

RNA EDITING MAKES US HUMAN
RNA EDITING MAKES US HUMAN, suggests a report in New Scientist, 29 Jan 2005, p13. RNA editing is a process that changes genetic information after it has been copied onto a molecule called messenger RNA, which carries the information to the protein making machinery in the cell. One editing process changes adenosine molecules to inosine. This kind of editing occurs commonly in RNA from regions called Alu sequences, which were thought to be genomic junk. A team of scientists at Tel Aviv Univ...   Click here for more...

SCANNED FOSSILS CONFUSE WATER-LAND TRANSITION
SCANNED FOSSILS CONFUSE WATER-LAND TRANSITION, according to reports from Duke University News 17 April 2009, ScienceDaily 19 April 2009 and Science vol. 324, p341 & p364, 17 April 2009. Researchers from Duke University found some fossils embedded in rocks from Greenland and rather than risk damaging them, they scanned them with a CT scanner and used computer imaging software to construct a three dimensional image of the fossils. The fossils were Acanthostega and Ichthyostega Click here for more...

SCIENTISTS CAMPAIGN POLITICIANS FOR RESPECT

SCIENTISTS CAMPAIGN POLITICIANS FOR RESPECT according to ABC News 20 June 2011. Over 200 scientists from around Australia have gathered in Canberra to meet with politicians and launch a campaign named “Respect the Science.” According to Anna Maria Arabia, CEO of the Federation of Australian Science and Technological Societies, the campaign “is really aimed at looking at the misinformation campaign that's being run against the scientific evidence largely coming from the climate change debate ...   Click here for more...
