Ingenious Ants Can't Prevent Stupid Evolution Quotes

After praising the wisdom of the ant, a science writer reveals little of his own.

Weightlifters No Match for Insects

For Olympic season, here are more comparisons between human and animal capabilities.

More Olympic Creatures

Plants and animals continue to amaze us with their Olympic-level abilities. New observations promote some to the award stand.

Birdifying Dinosaurs

Birds and dinosaurs have oval eggs and big eyes. Does this necessarily mean they evolved from a common ancestor?

Animalympics

As summer Olympics season approaches, we should remember that we humans are not the only ones with some amazing physical abilities.

Dinosaur Feather Story Gets Hairy

Another "feathered dinosaur" story has caused a flap and flurry of news reports. But are they really feathers, and do they help evolutionary theory?

Mating Turtles Fossilized Instantly

Evolutionary paleontologists have a mystery on their hands: how did turtles in the act of mating become fossilized?

South Korea "Creationism" Means War

Give just one side of a controversy the press, and you will get a one-sided presentation of the issues. That happened this week in the journal Nature.

Some animals commit cruel or disgusting acts humans would consider immoral. What does this mean?

Beak Careful: Variation May Be Non-Darwinian

Finch beaks loom large in classical Darwinian theory, but two examples of mouth parts in very different animals show that dramatic variations can be achieved quickly without the slow and gradual accumulation of small changes Darwin envisaged.

Animals Have Biological GPS

Global Positioning System (GPS): that's a function. Maintaining a suite of satellites is one method for achieving the function. But there are other ways to figure out where in the world you are, and two very different animals show the way – naturally – using Earth's global magnetic field.

Questioning the Dino-Bird Hypothesis

The scientific consensus has pretty much declared it a fact of natural history that birds evolved from dinosaurs. One evolutionary professor remains a gadfly, though. He contests the evidence on which the hypothesis is based, and also believes his maverick position is growing.

Small Animals Show Even More Design

Your smart phone is a triumph of miniaturization. The first computers were room-filling monstrosities; now, you can hold more computing power than a Univac in the palm of your hand. In the living world, we should't despise small creatures. They can pack a lot of technology into a small space. Here are some record-setting examples of living miniatures reported recently.
