Survey of American scientists proves the rule Cope, according to which the animals ultimately increase in size. Paleontologist Edward Cope came to this conclusion at the end of 1800, noting a tendency to enlarge the size of land animals, such as horses.
Amusingly, the trend of increasing size are subject not all animals. So dinosaurs grew, and birds and insects – no. The process of increasing perhaps was the effect of random evolution that occurred not through natural selection – a process known as neutral drift.

For their normal operation needs a stable supply of phosphorus, potassium and many other nutrients, Continue reading “How much sand from Sahara reaches Amazon Scientists discovered?”
Cities in a certain way influenced the ecosystem and even changed the track of evolution. Scientists have found that evolutionary changes began to occur quicker than previously thought. The ecosystem is changing before our eyes. Spiders in the cities become larger and salmon in the rivers – less. This fish is capable to live in both salt and fresh waters.
Urban birds bolder. A new study by Marina Alberti, University of Washington shows that the pressure of human civilization on the ecosystem can have important consequences for the environment and eventually the man himself. Continue reading “Cities are changing track of evolution”

About the new creation reports The Telegraph.
Lycotec company claims that chocolate bar Esthechoc weighing seven and a half grams contains as much antioxidant astaxanthin as a salmon fillet, and not less cocoa polyphenols than a hundred grams of dark chocolate. Later than daily intake slows the aging of chocolate for a month volunteers increased blood flow to the skin. Continue reading “Researchers have formed chocolate to fight wrinkles”
