Researchers have detected something like REM (rapid eye movement) sleep — which is associated with dreaming in humans — in jumping spiders.
Ewert’s model represents a valuable tool in the developing theory of biological design, which should eventually supplant phylogenetic analyses.
Schermerhorn Hall at Columbia University was the scene of many strange experiments.
This is a case of evolutionary biology trying to explain away the data that otherwise was not directly expected under their model.
The mechanism of Darwinian evolution absolutely works — by breaking genes, when that provides a selective advantage, or turning them off.
