The capabilities of flying animals continue to amaze scientists, and explanations challenge their best efforts. Does evolutionary theory help?
On Monday, I will look at the consistency of the phylogenetically informative sites for the Baum et al. (2016) paper. Spoiler alert: It looks like design.
You’ve heard about salmon, whales, and sea turtles. Now learn what the clumsy-looking elephant seal accomplishes navigation-wise.
It typically takes up to three generations of butterflies to make the complete journey. This means that the navigation information is genetically programmed.
Advances in live data logging show how birds do it: get from here to there. Some surprises were uncovered in recent experiments.
