  • behavior
  • are there any newsgroups or mailing lists devoted to behavioral ecology, evolved behavior and evolutionary ecology in general? (bio.net)
  • Selection experiments have provided examples of rapid life history evolution and, more importantly, that fishery-induced selection pressures cause simultaneous divergence of not one but a cluster of genetically and phenotypically correlated traits that include physiology, behavior, reproduction, and other life history characters. (wiley.com)
  • Paradox
  • Comparative studies of linguistic faculties in animals pose an evolutionary paradox: language involves certain perceptual and motor abilities, but it is not clear that this serves as more than an input-output channel for the externalization of language proper. (frontiersin.org)
  • Theory
  • Workshop discussions therefore pointed to key areas where theory and observations should aim to converge as we refine our understanding of evolution. (wiley.com)
  • This book provides a profounder (conformable to the biological theory of evolution) explanatory basis not only for anthropology and history of law but also for juristic methodology. (springer.com)
  • Whatever lip service is paid to taking into account other factors than those traditionally accepted, we find that the theory, as presented in extant writings, concentrates on a limited set of evolutionary explananda, excluding the majority of those mentioned among the explanatory goals above. (evolutionnews.org)
  • A rising number of publications argue for a major revision or even a replacement of the standard theory of evolution [2- indicating that this cannot be dismissed as a minority view but rather is a widespread feeling among scientists and philosophers alike. (evolutionnews.org)
  • He draws a line between superstition and religion, recognizing that atheism is not the inevitable conclusion of evolutionary theory. (cambridge.org)
  • He carefully distinguishes between cause and agent, explaining that evolutionary theory treats the "how" but appropriately leaves the question of "why" to the philosophers and theologians. (cambridge.org)
  • Along the way he provides an up-to-date primer of the current state of evolutionary theorizing sprinkled with tactful demolitions of the standard arguments against Darwin's Theory. (cambridge.org)
  • vertebrates
  • Built on the basic assumption that protein pairs with similar substitution rates are likely to interact with each other, the CD method converts the evolutionary information from 14 species of vertebrates into likelihood ratios and combined them together to infer PPI. (ovid.com)
  • empirical
  • None of these contentions are unscientific , all rest firmly on evolutionary principles and all are backed by substantial empirical evidence. (evolutionnews.org)
  • Despite these limitations, experiments have contributed greatly to our understanding of fishery-induced evolution on both empirical and theoretical levels. (wiley.com)
  • demonstrate
  • Then I demonstrate that this effect can result in the evolution of a particular, genetically controlled psychology causing individuals to interfere in a bully-victim conflict on the side of the victim. (utk.edu)
  • We demonstrate that the newly developed SM model of protein evolution may provide a basis for exploring genomic evolution and correlations. (genetics.org)
  • Of course, even if the classic story were true, it would not demonstrate Darwinian evolution. (evolutionnews.org)
  • molecular
  • We're pretty sure that the ancestral seahorse was straight, and then evolution turned it into a horsey form, for molecular and morphologically-based phylogenies show that the "outgroup" for seahorses are pipefishes. (wordpress.com)
  • largely
  • On the one hand, common descent has been important in the evolution of the brain, such that avian and mammalian brains may be largely homologous, particularly in the case of brain regions involved in auditory perception, vocalization, and auditory memory. (frontiersin.org)
  • Basically, the evolutionary fate of a mutant is largely determined by the prespecified fitness value (the coefficient of selection) and the effective population size. (genetics.org)
  • Müller concedes that conventional evolutionary thinking "largely avoids" this "big question. (evolutionnews.org)
  • The evolution of the TEM β-lactamases has occurred largely in response to selection imposed by the clinical use of β-lactam antibiotics. (genetics.org)
  • novel
  • The authors' work is particularly significant since it demonstrates that no evolutionary process could achieve novel outcomes which correspond to generating significant amounts of new information. (evolutionnews.org)
  • It is desirable to develop a novel framework that can provide an integrated view of protein evolution, but an unsolved key problem is how to deal with the sophisticated relationship between protein sequence and organismal fitness. (genetics.org)
  • THERE is a long history of using microbial systems as models to study the evolution of novel enzyme functions ( M ortlock 1984 ). (genetics.org)
  • Bioinformatics
  • Bioinformatics analysis revealed that during evolution, the chromosomes are rearranged by breaking typically in specific locations, rather than in a random fashion, as had been widely thought. (blogspot.com)
  • Author
  • In her chapter (Bentley, 2016) introducing the just published book, "Evolutionary Thinking in Medicine: from Research to Policy and Practice," the author acknowledges activity that can be considered evolutionary medicine in the years prior to 1991 but confines it to before roughly 1940. (evmedreview.com)
  • study
  • The Science Daily news service quotes one of the scientists involved in the study to the effect that "this discovery fills a fundamental gap in the peppered moth story," which Science Daily calls the "iconic textbook example of evolution by natural selection. (evolutionnews.org)
  • The evolution of resistance has also provided an invaluable opportunity to study natural evolution in a short time frame. (genetics.org)
  • protein evolution
  • Alternatively, researchers have to use the partial-correlation or principle-component methods to analyze major determinants governing protein evolution ( e.g . (genetics.org)
  • Protein evolution and protein classification are usually inferred by comparing protein cores in their conserved aligned parts. (biomedcentral.com)
  • We show that by considering "dissimilar" loop regions rather than only conserved core regions it is possible to improve our understanding of protein evolution. (biomedcentral.com)
  • content
  • Today, I will discuss his critique of the content of the TE book that draws from Introduction to Evolutionary Informatics by Robert Marks, Bill Dembski, and Winston Ewert (MDE). (evolutionnews.org)
  • mammals
  • The main thing, though, is that this is a really good book on evolution, particularly the evolution of mammals, with many wonderful insights that will be new to readers. (cambridge.org)
  • Written from a theistic perspective, Asher's account is a richly detailed and authoritative source book on the evolution of mammals. (cambridge.org)
