Animals aren’t the only organisms capable of incredible evolutionary adaptations. Plants have developed multiple types of mimicry to protect themselves and reproduce.
What classifies a mammal? Let’s take a deep dive into this final installment of the New Beginnings series and discover what primary traits distinguish mammals from all others in Kingdom Animalia.
The Animal Kingdom is absolutely incredible. Full of taxa that are distinguished by characteristics that would otherwise be unimaginable had evolution not brought them into existence. In Part 3 of the New Beginnings series, we’ll take a look at all the different evolutionary groups bunched under Phylum Chordata, our last stop before Class Mammalia.
Hot or not? In this short overview of what it means to be a “sexy son,” we explore the power of cryptic female choice in evolution, and non-sexy males’ contribution to evolution and ecology.
How do different species of animals come into existence? What makes organisms evolve? Here we take a quick look at the term “speciation” and how it works in the context of evolutionary sciences.
Even in this day in age there are a lot of misconceptions surrounding evolution and what it truly is. This is a brief introduction to the topic of macro- vs. micro-evolution! Stick around for more science education articles on evolutionary biology.
