Ultra-low oxygen could have triggered die-offs, spurred bird breathing system

...at high altitude. Now, a University of Washington paleontologist theorizes that low oxygen and repeated short but substantial temperature increases because of greenhouse warming sparked two major mass-extinction events, one of which eradicated 90 percent of all species on Earth. In addition, Peter Ward, a UW prof...

Scientists believe ancient arachnids may have spun silk like modern spiders

... around for a long time, said Conrad Labandeira, a paleontologist at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., and an adjunct professor of geological sciences at Ohio State.

Two dinosaurs from Africa give clues to continents' split

... discovered by a team led by University of Chicago paleontologist Paul Sereno. The find provides fresh information about how and when the ancient southern continents of Africa, South America and India separated.

'Fossil genes' reveal how life sheds form and function

MADISON - Reading the fossil record, a paleontologist can peer into evolutionary history and see the surface features that plants and animals and, occasionally, microbes have left behind. Now, scouring the genome of a Japanese yeast, scientists have found a trackway of fossil genes in the making, provid...
