Ice Age extinction claimed highly carnivorous Alaskan wolves

...e researchers extracted mitochondrial DNA from the fossil wolf bones preserved in permafrost and compared the sequences, called haplotypes, with those of modern-day wolves in Alaska and throughout the world. The fossils showed a wide range of haplotypes—greater in fact than their modern counterpart—but ther...

Lessons from the orangutans: Upright walking may have begun in the trees

...es. But, this distinction is complicated by recent fossil evidence that some early hominins, including Lucy ( Australopithecus afarensis ), lived in woodland environments, while even earlier forms such as Millennium Man ( Orrorin ) appear to have lived in the forest canopy and moved on two legs. "Our fin...

Genome sequencing reveals key to viable ethanol production

...s the promise of a clean, renewable alternative to fossil fuels, but deriving it from plants is difficult. Producing it from corn is the easiest method, but doing so on a large scale would drive up the price of corn, corn starch, and even tangential foods like beef, since cows are fed on corn—not to mention...
