Fossils pinpoint tropics as Earth's most fruitful biodiversity spawning ground

... It's both," said Valentine, professor emeritus of integrative biology at UC Berkeley. As the engine of global biodiversity, the tropics are where new species evolve and persist while spreading to higher latitudes, said Roy, a UCSD biology professor. "The world is connected. It's a global village, even for or...

Tropics source of much of world's biodiversity
