Darwin, Galileo, Mayr, Copernicus, Edelman, Newton, and Hayek all rethought the very fundamentals of their sciences, from the problems and explanatory strategies of their disciplines, to the logical status and conceptual role of the elements of their activities.

Coate examine the effects of genome doubling on cell biology and the generation of novelty in plants. Polyploidy, or the presence of more than two chromosomes in a cell, is common across many plant.

Creativity is the novelty-generating component of cultural evolution. As in any kind of evolutionary process, novelty must be balanced by preservation. In biological evolution, the novelty-generating.

Throughout the late 19th century, and well into the 1950′s, Africans and in some cases Native Americans, were kept as exhibits in zoos. Far from a relic from an unenlightened past, remnants of such exhibits have continued in Europe as late as the 2000′s.

Your physical reality will be filled with AI holograms, living toys, virtual teachers. It is an appeal back to our.

INTRODUCTORY. Systematics is a profoundly historical discipline, and we forget this at our peril. Only with a phylogeny can we begin to understand diversification, regularities in patterns of evolution, or simply suggest individual evolutionary changes within a clade.

Adaptation is the evolutionary process where an organism becomes better suited to its habitat. This process takes place over many generations. It is one of the basic phenomena of biology. When people speak about adaptation, they often mean a ‘feature’ (a trait) which helps an animal or plant survive.An example is the adaptation of horses’ teeth to grinding grass.

Atomic 50/50 Power Amp Dec 5, 2016. I want to stick to a solid state power amp, but do I go Rocktron. I got really lucky recently and bought an Atomic Reactor 50/50 for about $300. Understanding the effect of near-field materials, such as iron corrosion products, on the alteration of vitreous nuclear waste is essential for modeling long-term
A Neuroscientist Explains Why Evangelicals “There is frequently a relapse of the original fear, but we knew very little about the mechanisms,” said Michael Drew, Academia.edu is a platform for academics to share research papers. Curious as to what exactly was going on in my brain during these listening sessions, I reached out to Daniel Levitin, a cognitive neuroscientist and

The name Homo sapiens was applied in 1758 by the father of modern biological classification (see taxonomy), Carolus Linnaeus.It had long been known that human beings physically resemble the primates more closely than any other known living organisms, but at the time it was a daring act to classify human beings within the same framework used for the rest of nature.

Two Brassicaceae novelties are reported from Iran. Erysimum hezarense (Erysimeae) is described and illustrated as a newly discovered species. It resembles E. subulatum, E. laxiflorum and E. iraqense but can be readily distinguished by the indumentum of stem, leaves and pedicels; bicolor petals; and number of flowers on the main inflorescence.
