Finding the white wine difference

...es. "Our research suggests that extremely rare and independent mutations in two genes produced a single white grapevine that was the parent of almost all of the world's white grape varieties.

Why do birds migrate?

...i by using a computer analysis called phylogenetic independent contrasts. The technique allowed the scientists to sort out whether a bird was migratory because that's what species on their side of the family tree always did or whether the bird's travel habits had some ecological correlates. Food scarcity was...

New study rewrites evolutionary history of vespid wasps

...four genes across 30 species of vespid wasps. Four independent statistical analyses tested the reliability of the pattern of relationships that emerged from the data.

Why migrate? It's not for the fruit

...s the first time the technique called phylogenetic independent contrasts has been used to identify the causes of bird migration. "It's not just whether you eat insects, fruit, or candy bars, or where you eat them it matters how reliable that food source is from day-to-day," Boyle said. "For example, some really...

Research suggests a significant circadian rhythm in swim performance lasting 2-4 minutes

... that could cause time-of-day differences that are independent of circadian rhythm. For example, worse performance in the morning could be attributed to nutritional status, joint stiffness following bed-rest, sleep inertia upon arising, lower ambient temperature, and a lack of "warm up" in the muscles. Method...
