• As I've noted before , common descent provides a superior explanation for the extraordinary facts gleaned through comparative genomics (i.e., the examination and comparison of genome structure, overall and in detail, among different types of organisms), and there is no competing scientific explanation.

  • Recently, regions have been found in the brains of birds and turtles that are similar in some ways to the human neocortex levels 4 and 5, but in very different structures (for more on the emotional lives of reptiles please see ). (psychologytoday.com)
  • What Are the Differences Between Plants and Animals? (reference.com)
  • The differences between plants and animals begin at the cellular level and come to include aspects such as mobility. (reference.com)
  • Unusual nucleic-acid structure may have role in regulating some genes. (blogspot.com)
  • It's early days, but if we can map exactly where these G-quadruplex structures pop up in the genome, we may learn how better to control genes or other cellular processes that go awry in diseases like cancer," he says. (blogspot.com)
  • The basic paradigm in these studies involves sleep-depriving animals, such as rodents (or in some studies, cats), and then observing their behavior for signs of anxiety during a lab task. (psychologytoday.com)
  • In addition, hypotheses about the relationship of brain size and structure to stages of evolution, behavior, and cognitive capacities need to be reevaluated in light of new data and new theories. (psychologytoday.com)
  • How can these unexpected observations of complex behavior patterns be explained in terms of brain size structure? (psychologytoday.com)
  • Organisms, or living things, are made of tiny particles that can join together, making larger structures. (slideserve.com)
  • Table 6a-1 lists some of the chemical characteristics for 48 common elements found in the Earth's continental crust . (physicalgeography.net)
  • In a case apparently of masquerade, the red-faced spinetail Cranioleuca erythrops places bits of grass and other material loosely streaming both above and below the nest chamber to break the shape of the nest and to cause it to resemble random debris without any underlying structure. (wikipedia.org)
  • The earliest taxonomists recognized the variability of sponge shape as an impediment to these animals' easy identification and characterization, and it was realized early on that other types of criteria would be necessary to reliably distinguish between sponges. (reefkeeping.com)
  • In endothermic animals, construction of shelters, coupled with behavioural patterns, reduces the quantity and energy cost of thermoregulation, as in the case of the Arctic ground squirrels. (wikipedia.org)
  • By studying lab animals, it's possible to provide more control over the conditions that produce sleep deprivation as well as more controlled ways to measure anxiety. (psychologytoday.com)
  • As a last resort, structures may provide means of escape. (wikipedia.org)
  • At the Discovery Institute (DI) and Reasons To Believe (RTB) , as well as other creationist outlets , you can find ample discussion of "junk DNA" and why it matters to Christians who don't like evolution. (blogspot.com)
