Which came first, the moth or the cactus?
HOUSTON, Aug. 13, 2007 It's not
a good idea to put all your eggs in one basket unless you're a senita moth. Found in the parched Sonoran desert of southern Arizona and northern Mexico, the senita moth depends on a single plant species -- the senita cactus -- both for its food and...

Does the desire to consume alcohol and tobacco come from our genetic makeup?
Austin, TX Alcohol and smoking can be harmful, if not
deadly. While the desire for these substances can be due to environmental cues, genomic factors also play an important role. The etiology of these desires is multifactorial and a result of complex interactions with the environment. Adoption and twin ...
