The capabilities of flying animals continue to amaze scientists, and explanations challenge their best efforts. Does evolutionary theory help?
A millimeter-sized beetle flies efficiently with feathery wings and a beat mode not seen before. Did it evolve by natural selection?
How can a trigonometric mathematical computation be programmed into the brain of an ant through a neo-Darwinian process of genetic mutation and natural selection?
Giberson and Collins point to the feather as a prime example of a novel feature arising via blind evolution.
Despite their sometimes-nonchalant attitudes as they try to act cool, children do care what their parents think.
