Mass extinction led to many new species of bony fish (12/6/2014)

Mass extinction led to many new species of bony fishWith over 30,000 species worldwide, the ray fins are currently the largest group of fish. These bony fish were not always as numerous, however. Losses of other fish species, such as cartilaginous fish, helped them to spread successfully. As paleontologists from the University of Zurich together with international researchers reveal, a series of serious extinction events between 300 to 200 million years ago played a central role in the development of today's fish fauna. ...> Full Article

Seed dormancy, a property that prevents germination, already existed 360 million years ago (12/1/2014)

Seed dormancy, a property that prevents germination, already existed 360 million years agoAn international team of scientists, coordinated by a researcher from the U. of Granada, has found that seed dormancy (a property that prevents germination under non-favourable conditions) was a feature already present in the first seeds, 360 million years ago.Seed dormancy is a phenomenon that has intrigued naturalists for decades, since it conditions the dynamics of natural vegetation and agricultural cycles. There are several types of dormancy, and some of them are modulated by environmental conditions in more subtle ways than others. ...> Full Article
