Ancient ants arose 140-168 million years ago

... said Pierce. The herbivorous insects that evolved alongside flowering plants provided food for the ants. The researchers found that the poorly known ant subfamily Leptanillinae is the most ancient, followed by two broad groups known as the poneroids (predatory hunting ants) and the formicoids (more familiar s...

Missing fossil link 'Dallasaurus' found

...gists to study. Mosasaurs lived and became extinct alongside dinosaurs, but few paleontologists specialize in them. Later mosasaurs grew as large as their dinosaur brethren, reaching up to 45 feet in length. Until the discovery of Dallasaurus, however, only five primitive forms with land-capable limbs were kno...

Two genetic traits giving Africans malaria protection lose effectiveness when they occur together

....) But Williams said when the sickle trait exists alongside the type found routinely in malaria endemic regions of Africa, "all the good work of these genes is lost and you end up with the same degree of risk as someone who has neither trait." Williams said the finding does not affect treatment decisions but ...

Giant ape lived alongside humans

...t tall and weighing up to 1,200 pounds, co-existed alongside humans, a geochronologist at McMaster University has discovered. Using a high-precision absolute-dating method (techniques involving electron spin resonance and uranium series), Jack Rink, associate professor of geography and earth sciences at McMas...

UF Researcher: Global warming dramatically changed ancient forests

...western Wyoming uncovered fossil leaves and pollen alongside fossilized mammals in rocks that were deposited during this turbulent geologic interval. "Up until this point we have not had a place in which we have mammal and plant remains preserved in the same rocks spanning what we call the Paleocene-Eocene bo...

Genetic cause of speech defect discovered

In striking contrast, this patient could form virtually no complete words but showed normal spatial ability. "For example, if asked to tell us what animal has long ears a...

Newly discovered birdlike dinosaur is oldest raptor ever found in South America

...es, mammals, and lizards that have been discovered alongside Buitreraptor. The remarkable dinosaur was discovered in northwestern Patagonia about 700 miles southwest of Buenos Aires. Although Buitreraptor is rather small, the paleontological team needed 10 days to chisel out the 800-pound slab of rock contain...

Native plant eaters have gourmet palates

...thesis holds that since native plants have evolved alongside their native consumers, they've developed defenses to them. Since the newly introduced plants haven't evolved with the native consumers, they may lack appropriate defenses and may be more prone to being eaten in their new environment. "This is analog...

Fungus helps tall fescue choke out native plants

...plowed and planted with fescue seeds that sprouted alongside native grasses. Half of the seeds were tall fescue, which carries the fungal symbiont, and half did not carry the symbiont. The fungus is not transmitted by insects or wind and is only found in plants that sprout from infected seeds. Half of the test...

Still shellfish after 425 million years: Clam-like creature preserved perfectly in ancient fossil

...Science and Engineering, who discovered the fossil alongside colleagues at the Universities of Yale, Oxford and Leicester, said: "This is a significant discovery because it is something we never dared to dream we might see - an ancient fossil articulate brachiopod with its fleshy parts intact, and preserved in...

Temperature sensing by the circadian clock

This mechanism works alongside a temperature-dependent inhibition of translation by uORFs to effectively modulate FRQ levels and thereby circadian rhythmicity with changes in ambient temperature. Dr. Brunner emphasizes that the "interaction of molecular machinery with non-conse...
