UCLA Egyptologist gives new life to female pharaoh from 15th century BC (10/12/2014)

In a new mainstream biography, University of California Los Angeles Egyptologist Kara Cooney sets out to rehabilitate the image of female pharaoh Hatshepsut, who presided over Ancient Egypt's most peaceful and prosperous period in generations but whose successes were later erased or reassigned to male forbearers. To find a female ruler with as impressive a track record one has to look to third century BC China, Catherine the Great or Elizabeth I. ...> Full Article

52-million-year-old amber preserves 'ant-loving' beetle (10/10/2014)

52-million-year-old amber preserves 'ant-loving' beetleScientists have uncovered the fossil of a 52-million-year old beetle that likely was able to live alongside ants --preying on their eggs and usurping resources -- within the comfort of their nest. The fossil, encased in a piece of amber from India, is the oldest-known example of this kind of social parasitism, known as 'myrmecophily.' The research also shows that the diversification of these stealth beetles, which infiltrate ant nests world-wide today, correlates with the ecological rise of modern ants. ...> Full Article


How dinosaur arms turned into bird wings (10/9/2014)

Although we now appreciate that birds evolved from a branch of the dinosaur family tree, a crucial adaptation for flight has continued to puzzle evolutionary biologists. During the millions of years that elapsed, wrists went from straight to bent and hyperflexible, allowing birds to fold their wings neatly against their bodies when not flying. A resolution to this impasse is now provided by an exciting new study publishing on Sept. 30 in PLOS Biology. ...> Full Article


Tooth serves as evidence of 220 million-year-old attack (10/8/2014)

Tooth serves as evidence of 220 million-year-old attackAt the beginning of the age of dinosaurs, gigantic reptiles -- distant relatives of modern crocodiles -- ruled the earth. Some lived on land and others in water and it was thought they didn't much interact. But a tooth found by a University of Tennessee, Knoxville, researcher in the thigh of one of these ancient animals is challenging this belief. ...> Full Article
