Groundbreaking assessment of all life on Earth reveals humanity’s surprisingly tiny part in it as well as our disproportionate impact.

Researchers have found evidence that regular changes in the Earth’s orbit and axis of rotation caused significant changes in both the evolution and extinction rates of an extinct type of plankton.
When animals are isolated on islands, they can evolve into strange new species found nowhere else on Earth. A family of worm-eating mice from a tiny island in the Philippines have set a new lower limit for island size and evolution.
Scientists believe the largest of these dinosaurs arranged their eggs around a central gap in the nest. This bore the parent’s weight, while allowing them to potentially provide body heat or protection to their developing young, without crushing the delicate eggs.
UCLA neuroscientists have reported that they have transferred a memory from one animal to another via injections of RNA.
Pleistocene Park is an epic experiment in the Siberian Arctic that has been underway since 1996. It is this park to which the Harvard team hope to deliver the first resurrected mammoth hybrid within the next decade.
