lol, read the article, they put together stuff they found in a whole bunch of different places, then as is typical, filled in the gaps with plaster, which is most of the made up creature.

A book instructing children the get into paleontology by mixing and matching chicken bones to make dinosaurs!!


Just like real paleontologists, mix and match shit to make made-up creatures!!!

Yes, Jerome, that is exactly what paleontologists do! Think how much fun they have, making up one outrageous beast after another. I bet they have secret contests!

Have you read the 'Lucy' documents? Dude found those bones all over the place .. and right before his grant ran out.


Yea, literally dude found a number of bones in a bunch of different places, put them together and 'made' Lucy.


Those bones were not from the same creature.


Might as well have a Lego set and just make up anything you want, lol

Quote:
There are several cases of insular animal species exhibiting dramatic differences in body size when compared with mainland counterparts. Such pronounced morphological changes can arise from divergent selection via differing resource availability, competition or predation pressure. Past studies have not been able to demonstrate a reversal of these morphological changes when populations are removed from their island situation. This study examines the body size response of populations of the Barrow Island ‘dwarf’ subspecies of golden bandicoot (Isoodon auratus barrowensis: Ramsay, 1887) following translocation to an island and mainland site within their former range. Skeletal and mass measurements, body condition and fecundity of released animals and their offspring were compared to data from the source population. When comparing bandicoots born at translocation sites to source populations, males were significantly larger in skeletal size and mass, females were also significantly larger and exhibited higher reproductive output (number, frequency and average mass of pouch young). These effects occurred in a gradient according to environmental conditions, where animals were smallest and least productive at the densely populated source site, larger and more productive on a nearby island, and largest and most productive at a mainland site with some nutritional supplementation. These changes in skeletal size, mass and fecundity took place in the first 1–4 generations (18 months post‐release), suggesting that the response is not explained by natural selection. We posit that the small size of golden bandicoots on Barrow Island (315.8 4.2 g, this study, cf 569.4 19.3 g, mainland) is not a genotypic response to selective pressures, but rather a reversible phenotypic response to more favourable environmental conditions. A reduction in competitive pressures appeared to allow bandicoots to grow to a larger size and mass, and allow greater reproductive output. Ecological processes relating to resource limitation appear to drive ‘island dwarfism’ in I. auratus, and may apply to other insular species with morphological differentiation.

Pacific coast sea stars recovering well after the massive die offs a few years ago:



Quote:
Sea stars, also known colloquially as starfish, have rebounded on Oregon's coast from a wasting disease that wiped out great numbers. Scientists still aren't sure what caused the disease. Visitors may see any of these 10 most common varieties found on Oregon beaches.

Pisaster ochraceus
This purple or ochre star is commonly found in rocky tidal areas of the Oregon coast. After the mass mortality in 2014, baby sea stars migrated to rocky shores in exceptionally high numbers.

Uh.. natural selection ftw in this instance.

Yes, but Holmes has taught us the ashes of the cigar are very important in sorting the true facts from the too easy question.

Quote:
They found both yellow and red patches contained the same type of psittacofulvin pigment molecule — one that usually bestows a yellow hue.

What differed, though, was how the molecules were arranged.

In the yellow patch, pigment molecules appeared to be separated. But in the red, they were snuggled up close.

So how does the closer arrangement of yellow pigment molecules turn a feather red?

Here we enter the gnarly world of quantum physics. If you move molecules closer or further apart, what's called the "energy gap" also changes.

This gap affects what wavelengths of light are absorbed and reflected or transmitted — and changes the colour we see.

Science is essentially about explaining things is such a way that knowledge can be shared and improved. No one can explain quantum physics, so as far as being scientific goes, it falls at the first hurdle.

Spiders use electricity to fly. Prettymuch any time they want to.

ready for take off:



Quote:
Ballooning spiders operate within this planetary electric field. When their silk leaves their bodies, it typically picks up a negative charge. This repels the similar negative charges on the surfaces on which the spiders sit, creating enough force to lift them into the air. And spiders can increase those forces by climbing onto twigs, leaves, or blades of grass. Plants, being earthed, have the same negative charge as the ground that they grow upon, but they protrude into the positively charged air. This creates substantial electric fields between the air around them and the tips of their leaves and branches—and the spiders ballooning from those tips.
