I recommend you dive straight in to carnivory cold turkey (or hot beef). If you are going to get benefits, you might as well find out right away. Ultimately, it will save time and agony, and give you more information. Get as many confounds out of the way as you can. The faster you can determine if carnivory is right for you, the faster you can get the benefits and get on with the rest of your life. There are far more interesting things to focus on than what you are having for dinner. One of the great beauties of carnivory is that the process of eating becomes so simple, it opens up time to think about other things.. Carnivory is not typically difficult. What difficulties there are are primarily psychological and social. So you need to commit and prepare. Commit by knowing why you want to try it. Thats what will get you through. Dont do it if youre not really sure, because breaking your word to yourself is damaging to self-esteem. For this reason, it helps to make it a short-term commitment; ...

Many families of vascular plants have representatives which exhibit either parasitism and carnivory and, given the wide taxonomic separation between such species, various forms of these remark-able adaptive features must have evolved independently, and on numerous occasions over their evolutionary history. Two examples will be considered.

Carnivorous plants are plants that derive some or most of their nutrients (but not energy) from trapping and consuming animals or protozoans, typically insects and other arthropods. Carnivorous plants have adapted to grow in places where the soil is thin or poor in nutrients, especially nitrogen, such as acidic bogs and rock outcroppings. Charles Darwin wrote Insectivorous Plants, the first well-known treatise on carnivorous plants, in 1875. True carnivory is thought to have evolved independently nine times in five different orders of flowering plants, and is represented by more than a dozen genera. This classification includes at least 583 species that attract, trap and kill prey, absorbing the resulting available nutrients. Additionally, over 300 protocarnivorous plant species in several genera show some but not all of these characteristics. Five basic trapping mechanisms are found in carnivorous plants. Pitfall traps (pitcher plants) trap prey in a rolled leaf that contains a pool of ...

Our fascination with the Venus fly trap (Dionaea muscipula) is undeniable. Whats not to love about a plant that eats animals? Our obsession with this species has led to a long history of investigation (as well as deplorable practices like poaching). However, despite our familiarity with the Venus fly trap, we still have much to learn about its biology. For instance, little is known about the origins of the molecular machinery involved in its carnivorous lifestyle. Thanks to a 2016 paper published in Genome Research, we now have some insights.. As you can probably imagine, the Venus fly trap genome has been of interest to science for quite some time. After all, it is likely to harbor the keys to this carnivorous curiosity. However, despite looking, no carnivory-specific genes have ever been found. Its as if this wonder of evolution has no genetic basis. Of course, things are not that simple. A breakthrough was made when a team of researchers based out of Germany and Saudi Arabia decided to take ...
How to become a pitcher plant: a narrow evolutionary road. Pitcher plants capture insects by luring them into a pitfall trap - a cupped leaf with a waxy, slippery interior that makes it difficult to climb out. A soup of digestive fluids sits at the bottom of this chamber and breaks down the flesh and exoskeletons of prey.. Australian, Asian and American pitcher plants possess these features despite having evolved independently to become carnivores, as Albert and colleagues discovered in a 1992 study published in the journal Science.. The new paper builds on this older work, conducting a deeper investigation into how unrelated pitcher plants came to share so much in common.. As it turns out, the path to carnivory was remarkably similar for the three species examined - Cephalotus follicularis (the Australian pitcher plant, related to starfruit), Nepenthes alata (an Asian pitcher plant related to buckweat) and Sarracenia purpurea (an American pitcher plant related to kiwifruit). A genetic analysis, ...
Carnivory in plants is a very specialized form of foliar feeding, and is an adaptation found in several plants that grow in nutrient-poor soil. Carnivorous traps were naturally selected to allow these organisms to compensate for the nutrient deficiencies of their harsh environments by supplementing ordinary photosynthate with animal proteins.[25]. The "snap trap" mechanism characteristic of Dionaea is shared with only one other carnivorous plant genus, Aldrovanda. For most of the 20th century, this relationship was thought to be coincidental, more precisely an example of convergent evolution. Some phylogenetic studies even suggested that the closest living relatives of Aldrovanda were the sundews.[26] It was not until 2002 that a molecular evolutionary study, by analyzing combined nuclear and chloroplast DNA sequences, indicated that Dionaea and Aldrovanda were closely related and that the snap trap mechanism evolved only once in a common ancestor of the two genera.[27][28]. A 2009 study[26] ...

Im sitting here, in the call room, deep in the bowels of the hospital, where all the shit collects, getting ready to try and get an hour of sleep. I doubt it will happen. The Center has been alive on this full moon night, writhing around like some tortured monster. There has been a steady stream of comatose overdose patients, jacked up on the first friday night of the month, getting high on our money, and being bailed out with our money when they push it too far. There was the cocaine man, our fucked up version of the rainman. All he would say was "I take Xanax TID," "I need you to give me my Xanax." "TID." "Xanax TID." Then came the hip fractures. There have been more little old ladies with hip fractures tonight than I have seen in two months. The bulk of them were the result of a head on motor vehicle accident, several miles from The Center. Six passengers were involved, one was life flighted directly here, the others rolled in slowly with less serious injuries. However, two of these "less ...

Mead says that "the learned Kirckringius" relates the following story:-He knew a young gentlewoman whose beauty depended upon the lunar force, insomuch that at full moon she was very handsome, but in the decrease of the moon became so wan and ill-favoured that she was ashamed to go abroad till the return of the new moon gave fullness to her face and attraction to her charms. If this wore indeed the case, we can fully credit a later assertion of Mead, that the powerful action of the moon is observed not only by philosophers and students of natural history, but "even by common people, who have been fully persuaded of it time out of mind." True it is that Cornishmen believe that a child born in the interval between an old moon and the first appearance of a new one will never live to attain puberty; old people of extreme age are said to die at new or full moon. Galen is cited to the effect that animals born at full moon are strong and healthy. Bacon is said to have fallen invariably into a syncope ...
I found him over the paper and folded it. "Well, for one, the darkness can shelter us, protect us in our sleep, but it can also let all the bad things hide." A frown etched onto my face instead of the smile I wished to share. When I realized my failure, I searched the sky. A white light pushed against the back of the murky overcast, bright enough for me to predict. Itd be a full moon in a week. "The full moon can be romantic, light up paths for us, but it can also scare people into believing in monsters." Bad bloods were the monsters now. "All of my moms stories proved that," I said. "She used to tell me that a full moon is when mysterious things happen and wishes come true." I stared at the little paper in my hands. "Do you think she tells my sister those stories?" ...
Reliable and abundant resources are likely to favour specialisation, while unpredictable environmental variation should favour a generalist strategy. The rodent population cycles of northern latitudes can be seen as both predictable and unpredictable, depending on the scale in time and space. The arctic fox (Alopex lagopus) is an opportunistic carnivore, but paradoxically, it seems to function as a specialist on fluctuating rodent (Arvicolinae) populations in most inland areas. We have studied the dietary response of arctic foxes in Sweden during five years of varying abundance of Norwegian lemming (Lemmus lemmus), and how these changes influenced reproductive success of the foxes. The arctic fox population on mainland Fennoscandia is threatened by extinction and the situation has deteriorated during the 1980´s and 90´s, due to an absence of lemming peaks. Our results showed that in all years, lemming was the main prey for arctic foxes, with in total 85% frequency of occurrence in summer ...

Gray is stumped as to what has gone down and doesnt really see a pattern of victim yet as both were subdued, I suppose would be the word, in different manners. As with victim number one though, a knock on the head, how Martin Askew was, isnt as obvious. Stranger even is the strange irritated patch of skin on his arm and his weird ways that Gray knows of so far. ...

And we have a pretty powerful Full Moon this week (Weds/Thurs depending on which country you are in). So I do hope that you are listening to your body and emotions and being gentle with yourself and others. This Full Moon in Libra asks us to find balance despite being pushed hard by Aries to change what needs changing. If youve been stuck in a comfortable rut or desperately clinging onto something or someone when you know you should have let go a long time ago, prepare to be kicked into touch! Change is happening and there is nothing you can do about it. Resist and it will be so much harder on you. Accept and go with the flow, you must be flexible like a Snake and move gracefully with the energies. Snake years as I mentioned last time, will throw up unexpected curve balls and mess up plans time and time again, the test is how you will cope with it all. We are all being pushed forward now, you cannot stop it, so accept it and look ahead as we are being guided towards something (or someone) so ...

It brought back sharp memories of this time last year. Most evenings, at about 7pm, as soon as I had finished teaching, we would leap into the car and rush the twenty miles to the hospital in order to snatch an hour with my mother.

This was our routine until she was able to go back home in February this year ...

I have been paying attention to and practicing aligning my life with these phases for almost a year now. I have found that it really makes a difference when I move with the flow of the moon rather than against it. For example, I try to plan my mindless type errands, business housekeeping and networking events during the week of the full moon. That way Im not wasting energy trying to get things done at that time. on the other hand, I rarely schedule meetings or "outside" events during the new moon - that is my inner-looking time. Finding the difference between the other two phases is a little harder but my point is that paying attention to these has helped my personal productivity and engagement with life. THANK YOU for this oh so helpful information!. ...
Well it seems that there is no solid solution to this problem but I do believe that it could also be due to our regular lunar phases. We have the small lunar phases here on earth that we experience such as a half. quarter, and full moon. While we move through the universe, following our sun, the moon does the same. We sometimes get closer and farther from the sun, as does the moon. Therefore it seems reasonable to think that we are in some sort of alignment that would throw off the rotation of earth for a period of time, if you recall sometime around 1988 there was a similar story that stated the earth was slowing down around 1.6 miliseconds a year. I guess its time for it to catch up ...

On February 20, 2008, sky gazers from the central Pacific to Africa saw the full Moon turn a striking red as it passed into Earth’s shadow. From space, the lunar eclipse deepened the darkness of the night. The Defense Meteorological Satellite Program’s (DMSP) F16 satellite captured this view of the eclipse as the satellite flew over the nighttime side of the Earth in a series of overpasses.

Go out on the evening of the 10th, and if you didnt know in advance, youd be hard pressed to tell whether this was a supermoon or the ordinary meh kind. It will appear just under 8% larger than the average full Moon, and about 15% larger than the "minimoon" at apogee. The difference is discernable in a side-by-side comparison like the one at right, but a glance up at the night sky isnt going to bowl anyone over ...

... DECREASES SLEEP. Folklore has it that a full moon brings on strange happenings. Indeed, the terms "lunatic" and "lunacy" are derived from the Latin word luna which, in turn, refers to the moon. Among the many claims that have been made regarding the power of the full moon to affect human behavior is the claim that it interferes with sleep. However, this assertion has never before been tested by objective scientific study. (On the other hand, many marine animals have been shown to respond to the various phases of the lunar cycle.) Now, a newly published study suggests that humans may also respond to the moons phases, and that sleep may actually be significantly impaired when the moon is full. This new study appears in this current issue of the journal Current Biology.. The data for this clinical research study was collected from a prior sleep study that included 33 adult volunteers. Because this sleep study was conducted in a sleep laboratory where exposure to light (including ...
A pitcher plant is a carnivorous plant (also called as Insectivorous plant). Carnivorous plants are plants that eat insects and other small animals. Carnivorous plants grow in soil that has little nitrogen. All living things must have nitrogen. Carnivorous plants get nitrogen from the insects they eat.. Pitcher of the pitcher plant is actually a modified leaf. The apex of the leaf is the lid.. Pitcher plants catch (get) insects in a cup of liquid. The walls of the cup make nectar (sweet liquid) . The nectar attracts insects. When an insect lands on the wall, it falls down into the liquid. The insect cannot get out of the cup because the walls are smooth and slippery and the walls have hairs pointing down. After the insect is dead, its body rots. Rotting releases (lets loose) the nitrogen from the insects body. The nitrogen then goes into the liquid and the plant takes in the nitrogen from the liquid.. ...

I love full moons. Not just as a way of marking the months, though thats great; not that I actually might have a moon-shadow even in the City though I like that, but that it lifts my gaze and thoughts upward - metaphorically and literally. The full moon, on the evening of 24 January…
The transition from carnivory to omnivory is poorly understood. The ability to feed at more than one trophic level theoretically increases an animals fitness in a novel environment. Because of the absence of light and photosynthesis, most subterranean ecosystems are characterized by very few trophic levels, such that food scarcity is a challenge in many subterranean habitats. One strategy against starvation is to expand diet breadth. Grotto Salamanders (Eurycea spelaea (Stejneger, 1892)) are known to ingest bat guano deliberately, challenging the general understanding that salamanders are strictly carnivorous. Here we tested the hypothesis that grotto salamanders have broadened their diet related to cave adaptation and found that, although coprophagous behavior is present, salamanders are unable to acquire sufficient nutrition from bat guano alone. Our results suggest that the coprophagic behavior has emerged prior to physiological or gut biome adaptations.
Historically, throughout the years, there has been belief that the full moon caused people and animals to act quite bizarrely. The term lunatic derives from the word luna the Latin term for moon, and is used to depict a person affected by periodic insanity, as if affected by the phases of the moon.
Hi Jay,. Sure, its always possible that these anecdotes are based on an entirely new field of physics, one that will win someone a Nobel Prize. But lets be honest: thats what they say about every pseudoscience. The problem is that *if* these "forces" existed generally, they would have been detected by people doing experiments for other purposes. (E.g., as I said before, with other liquids at the full moon).. So we have a choice: either there is some different physical law that effects wine in barrels and no other liquids, or people get very superstitious about the full moon. Recall that people have been making false statements about the full moon for a very long time (e.g., that there are more admissions to emergency rooms, etc., which has been proven false in statistical analysis).. Id put it this way: the full moon has a definite effect. Its psychological.. The problem with these "repeated observations" is that they are like the repeated observations of people who claim to get better from ...
Once in a Full Moon by Ellen Schreiber starts strong, with the mystery and intrigue surrounding the ethereal witch doctor and her bizarre prediction. Yet, the characters that populate this world are far too cookie cutter and stereotypical to truly come to life for the reader, or to be compelling. All of Celestes friends -- from her best girl friends Abby and Ivy, to her boyfriend Nash -- are pretty and popular, but also shallow and cruel. Celeste sets herself apart by her compassion and her willingness to look past exteriors, and yet she is still utterly caught up in what her terrible friends think of her, and constantly shows a sad lack of self-esteem. While I really wanted to root for Celeste, I ultimately couldnt because she refused to recognize that she was putting too much stock by her superficial, "popular" friends, all while trying to appear as though she was morally superior to them all. This novel does have several truly mystical moments that are mesmerizing, and the drama is ...

Local resource for ferret adoptions in Santa Fe, NM. Here you will find local listings for animal shelters in your area that may have cat, dog, bird, rodent and ferret adoptions. Ferrets are elongated carnivorous mammals that are commonly kept as pets. Some are still used for hunting rabbits. Adoption is the process of the process when a new owner takes guardianship and responsibility for a pet that the previous owner abandoned.
A small, carnivorous mammal, the domestic cat is valued as a human companion and as a rodent predator. Calicoes are particularly valued for their striking coats, though they have a reputation for being temperamental. Unlike dogs, domestic cats are not much different from their wild ancestors. A healthy calico keeps itself clean, has excellent vision and hearing, and communicates through vocalizations and body language, sometimes including purring, hissing, meowing, grunting, and clicking. Cats are naturally more active at night, though a house cats schedule usually revolves around human activity. Many cat owners choose to sterilize their pets, but breeders who want to produce calico cats mate female calicoes with orange or black males. The result is almost always a mixed litter that may or may not contain one female calico. Like all cats, calicoes are protective of their kittens, which are born blind and deaf. A kitten nurses for up to seven weeks, and should stay with its mother for at least ...

Background The largest living lizard species, Varanus komodoensis Ouwens 1912, is vulnerable to extinction, being restricted to a few isolated islands in eastern Indonesia, between Java and Australia, where it is the dominant terrestrial carnivore. Understanding how large-bodied varanids responded to past environmental change underpins long-term management of V. komodoensis populations. Methodology/Principal Findings We reconstruct the palaeobiogeography of Neogene giant varanids and identify a new (unnamed) species from the island of Timor. Our data reject the long-held perception that V. komodoensis became a giant because of insular evolution or as a specialist hunter of pygmy Stegodon. Phyletic giantism, coupled with a westward dispersal from mainland Australia, provides the most parsimonious explanation for the palaeodistribution of V. komodoensis and the newly identified species of giant varanid from Timor. Pliocene giant varanid fossils from Australia are morphologically referable to V.

The pitchers of this carnivorous plant are leaves adapted to catch animal prey. Prey are attracted with nectar secreted on the inside of the hood. Downward pointing hairs cause prey to fall into the pitcher where they are decomposed by a community of microscopic organisms. These particular plants are from a bog in the Peak District National Park. The plants are not native to the UK; their native range is in North America.. I have been studying carnivorous plants for over 15 years. They are a fascinating group of plants because they have a variety of adaptations for the capture of prey, from which they extract nutrients. I study these plants to find out about how plants use nutrients, the impacts of pollution and climate change on ecosystems, and how invasive alien species affect ecosystems.. ...
Normally, if I promise you something, you can release me from my promise. But suppose that I promise to fire you if you are once again inexcusably late to a meeting with upper management. And you are inexcusably late. It would have been a pointless promise if you could release me now!. So, either that wasnt a promise or not all promises allow for release by the promisee. I want to explore the second option. So it was a promise but I cant be released.. Consider another case. I promise you that if it rains during a full moon, I will fire you. My intuition is that in the lateness case, the promise takes-I am bound. But the full moon case is not a case of a successful promise (at least under normal circumstances where there is no benefit to you of being fired; we can imagine circumstances in which you expectantly await the full moon and pray for rain)-I have no obligation to fire you, even if your contract allows me to fire you for no cause.. Why the difference? My best explanation is that in the ...

Check out how much fun this fox is having with its caretaker. Cuteness overload! Arctic foxes change the color of their fur with the seasons. In winter they are white to blend in with the snow, while in the summer they change to brown! The Arctic fox lives in some of the most frigid extremes on the planet but does not start to shiver until the temperature drops to −94 °F. The fur of the Arctic fox provides the best insulation of any mammal. The Arctic fox also has such keen hearing, it can determine exactly where a small animal is moving under the snow.
1. The plants reflector is situated just above the pitchers opening. To the bat, the reflector sounds very loud, but the opening below absorbs sound. The bats easily pick out this distinct contrast.. 2. The area containing the reflector is larger than related pitcher plants that attract insects, increasing its sonic signal. 3. It reflects distinct sonic patterns on either side so that the bats can detect it from many angles.. The plant reflectors size and side-reflecting patterns only work when a certain range of sound frequencies strike it. Of course, these exactly match the vocal range of these local bats, which happen to hold the record for highest frequencies of all bats so far measured. For more about animal sonar, watch our short video here.. How did all this interdependent fine-tuning happen? For a pitcher plant to construct the right size and shape reflector in the right place, it needs just the right building instructions in its DNA. And no number of high-pitched bat calls can ...

Hi forum! Im kinda new here, but have been lurking around for awhile. Sorry for a really long first post, haha! I recently aquiered 7 cephs from a gentlemen who seem to have taken good care of them, they were all in good shape upon arrival. My problems started the following morning when i saw a colour change in the largest specimen. It had gone a dull-ish colour and the back of the pitchers looked purplish!? From there the plant went to brown and i eventually cut away all wilted pitchers and a portion of the stem to where i could see white inside, instead of dead tissue. I have since just let it mind its own business thinking it may just have been stressed from the journey here from England (i live in Sweden). Though, the same thing have continued happening with the others aswell over the last month since their arrival. It starts of with the larger pitchers withering then the whole plant follows rather quickly. Even though it was happily putting out newgrowth up until right before the collapse. ...
Animal studies show that physical activity, metabolism, aggression, and sexual behavior are dramatically increased in many species at the time of the new and full moons.. To deny that the moon affects the human species as well is shortsighted; however, many people around the world still feel compelled to debate and research the topic.. One Italian study (Ghiandoni et al, European Journal of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology, March 1998, vol. 77, pp. 47-50) found a correlation between spontaneous full-term deliveries and the lunar month, with delivery day being correlated with the first or second day after the full moon.. Most importantly, fertility cycles are synchronized with the moon; thus, couples wishing to conceive have the best results when they observe the moons cycles rather than solar cycles.. A Russian study (Lucatelli and Pane, Biofizika, Sept.-Oct. 1995) has found that in some cases of manic-depressive illness, "planetary locations in relation to the lunar month could ...
First and foremost, that means being mindful of the March 19 full moon 28° 48 Virgo. Its arguably the years most extreme SuperMoon, for a couple of reasons: its the closest SuperMoon of the year, occurring within an hour of lunar perigee (the Moons closest approach to Earth): the Moon will look huge when it rises at sunset. And being so close to the vernal equinox, this SuperMoon occurs within hours of the moment the full moon crosses the celestial equator from north to south, just as the Sun crosses in the opposite direction. That makes this a major geophysical stress window, centered on the actual alignment date but in effect from the 16th through the 22nd. Of course you can expect the usual: a surge in extreme tides along the coasts, a rash of moderate-to-severe seismic activity (including magnitude 5+ earthquakes, tsunami and volcanic eruptions), and most especially in this case a dramatic spike in powerful storms with heavy precipitation, damaging winds and extreme electrical ...

The 28.53 day long Sunrise to Sunrise Cycle on the Moon will affect everything from Agriculture to Production Schedules to the Culture of the Lunan Pioneers. By Peter Kokh. We call the 28.53 cycle from one Full Moon to the next a [lunar] "month", and that makes sense - from our perspective. But what about for someone living on the Moon?. Might they instead not measure the same time period from Full Earth to Full Earth? But recall that the Moon always keeps the same face turned toward the Earth, so that calling this period an "earth" wouldnt make much sense for someone settling or working on the "Farside" where Earth is never visible above the horizon. There is a word astronomers use, the "lunation", but again, that is a geocentric term. So actually, there is no existing term that would suit future Lunan pioneer needs; one needs to be invented. And the choice is logical. From their future viewpoint, we are talking about the Sunrise to Sunrise period, or the Sunset to Sunset period. So why not ...

In her excellent Moon Watching series[1] Dana Gerhardt introduced readers of the TMA to this monthly cycle.

At this point, Id like to throw out some descriptors bandied about by the cruising guides and fellow cruisers regarding this particular beach landing… "gentle surf," "generally quite benign," "easy-peasy," and my personal favorite, "youll have no problems." Notice a pattern here? One of the reasons we stopped in Santiago was so that we could practice our dinghy landings-and according to the charts, this should have been the optimal time to come ashore. But what we hadnt taken into account was a full moon and king tides, which seemed to negate the whole concept of "generally quite benign" in favor of an especially large swell aka larger waves than usual. We timed the surf for about 40 minutes and there seemed to be a ten-minute window between the larger waves. So we readied the dinghy-waiting for our window-but Otter wouldnt stay in the boat. We decided that he should stay on shore while we drug the dinghy out, then Id go back and get him, he and I would wade/swim out to the boat, and wed ...

New Tel Aviv University research investigates anti-fungal agents in the sticky "pitchers" of carnivorous plants. In the tropics, carnivorous plants trap unsuspecting prey in a cavity filled with liquid known as a "pitcher.". The moment insects like flies, ants and beetles fall into a pitcher, the plants enzymes are activated and begin dissolving their new meal, obtaining nutrients such as carbon and nitrogen which are difficult to extract from certain soils. Carnivorous plants also possess a highly developed set of compounds and secondary metabolites to aid in their survival.. These compounds could serve as a new class of anti-fungal drugs for use in human medicine, says Prof. Aviah Zilberstein of Tel Aviv Universitys Department of Plant Sciences. In a study conducted together with Dr. Haviva Eilenberg from her lab, Prof. Esther Segal from the Sackler Faculty of Medicine and Prof. Shmuel Carmeli from the School of Chemistry, the unusual components from the plants pitchers were found effective ...
The twitchy tentacles of a sundew can catapult prey into the carnivorous plants sticky traps in a fraction of a second, researchers say.
Abstract: Together with the islands of Sumatra (Indonesia) and Borneo (Indonesia, Malaysia), the Philippines are the main center of diversity for carnivorous pitcher plants of the genus, Nepenthes L. Nepenthes are the largest of all carnivorous plants, and the species with the biggest pitchers are capable of trapping and digesting small amphibians and even mammals. The central cordillera of Mindanao Island in the south of the Philippines is mostly covered with old, primary forest and is the largest remaining cohesive, untouched area of wilderness in the Philippines. In a recent field exploration of two areas of the central cordillera, namely Mount Sumagaya and a section of the Pantaron range, four new taxa of Nepenthes were discovered. These four remarkable new species, N. pantaronensis, N. cornuta, N. talaandig and N. amabilis, are described, illustrated and assessed.. ...

Previous studies have suggested that the presence of sea ice is an important factor in facilitating migration and determining the degree of genetic isolation among contemporary arctic fox populations. Because the extent of sea ice is dependent upon global temperatures, periods of significant cooling would have had a major impact on fox population connectivity and genetic variation. We tested this hypothesis by extracting and sequencing mitochondrial control region sequences from 17 arctic foxes excavated from two late-ninth-century to twelfth-century AD archaeological sites in northeast Iceland, both of which predate the Little Ice Age (approx. sixteenth to nineteenth century). Despite the fact that five haplotypes have been observed in modern Icelandic foxes, a single haplotype was shared among all of the ancient individuals. Results from simulations within an approximate Bayesian computation framework suggest that the rapid increase in Icelandic arctic fox haplotype diversity can only be ...
