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.
Coronaviruses originate in animals and when transmitted to humans, cause severe respiratory complications. Scientists are looking to uncover the link between the SARS-CoV-2 virus and humans.
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.
Ever wondered about the biology, ecology, or evolution of some of video games’ popular allies and enemies? Wonder no more! Let’s dive into the true sciences of fantasy in SciComm Video Games!
Keystone species are a critical element to many habitats around the world. Without them, entire ecological systems would collapse. Let’s take a look at some of the world’s most-recognized keystone species.
Hunting is not always bad. Regulated pursuit and take of wild animals can actually be an effective wildlife management tool. We discuss this matter with Kika Worldwide’s founder, Jake Franklin.
Coyotes are one of the most persecuted species in North America. This feud goes back several hundred years, and shows no signs of slowing now. We must demand changes in the behavior of federal wildlife managers to make a difference in the welfare of America’s wildlife.
People tend to believe that they can interact with wild animals however they want and don’t believe there should be consequences. This video is a clear demonstration of what NOT to do when you’ve spotted a coyote.
The reality of human-wildlife conflict does not consider the animal’s best interests. Some animals await death after being trafficked for their body parts and fur, while others lack mental stimulation in cages.
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.
