Science & Tech  (tags: archaeology, research, study, discovery, carnivors, mammals, ancestors, lions, tigers, bears, interesting )

- 355 days ago -
Lions, tigers, bears and even loyal pups and playful kitties all come from the same line of carnivorous mammals, a lineage whose origins are lost in time. Scientists have discovered one of the earliest ancestors of all modern carnivores.
Super-Snake Ahead! Warming Makes Mammals Smaller, Reptiles Bigger
Science & Tech  (tags: paleontology, mammals, science, environment, climate change, global warming, interesting )

- 416 days ago -
Tens of millions of years ago, snakes were as big as horses. Horses were almost as small as snakes. And in a warmer world, it could get that way again.

- 507 days ago -
An extremely well-preserved rodentlike fossil recently discovered in China provides some of the best evidence yet for how the earliest human ancestors lived.
Dolphins 'Call Each Other By Name'
Science & Tech  (tags: scientists, research, animals, marine, mammals, Dolphins )

- 523 days ago -
Scientists have found further evidence that dolphins call each other by "name". Research has revealed that the marine mammals use a unique whistle to identify each other.

- 686 days ago -
Scientists have unveiled a detailed portrait of the earliest ancestor of dogs, horses, humans and all other mammals that don't lay eggs or carry their young in a pouch -- even though it hasn't yet been found in the fossil record.
Where the Beaked Whales Are

- 859 days ago -
I often think that finding a needle in a haystack would be relatively comfortable work compared with finding dolphins in offshore waters. If the dolphins do not approach the boat to ride the bow, the only sighting cue is the dorsal fin or the occasional
Creature Redefines Mammal History
Science & Tech  (tags: palaeontology, discovery, fossil, mammals, placental mammals, eutherians, Juramaia sinensis )

- 1219 days ago -
A small, 160-million-year-old Chinese fossil has something big to say about the emergence of mammals on Earth. The shrew-like creature is the earliest known example of an animal that used a placenta to provide nourishment to their unborn young.
Simple Marine Worms Distantly Related to Humans
Science & Tech  (tags: Marine Worms, Humans, Mammals, Species, Life )

- 1414 days ago -
Two groups of lowly marine worms are related to complex species including vertebrates (such as humans) and starfish, according to new research. Previously thought to be an evolutionary link between simple animals such as jellyfish and the rest of animal
Scientists Map All Mammalian Gene Interactions
Science & Tech  (tags: Mammals, Gene, UCLA researcher, human maps, genome )

- 1601 days ago -
In one of the first efforts of its kind, UCLA researchers have taken mammalian genome maps, including human maps, one step further by showing not just the order in which genes fall in the genome but which genes actually interact.
Creationist Students Take Trip to Evolution Headquarters: The Smithsonian
Science & Tech  (tags: science, humans, society, humans, religion, creationism, beliefs, dinosaurs, T-rex, Noah, Flood, Adam, Eve, Eden, Darwin, Paleozoic, mammals, museum )

- 2117 days ago -
Creationists, who take their view of natural history straight from the book of Genesis, believe that scientific data can be interpreted to support their idea that God made the first human, Adam, in an essentially modern form 6,000 to 10,000 years ago.
Whales Mourn If a Family Member Is Taken
Science & Tech  (tags: research, mammals, endangered-and-protected-species, science-and-technology, research, study, scientists )

- 2331 days ago -
Tasmanian scientists are examining the teeth of 100 whales and believe their research shows whaling impacts the mental health of other whales in the pod.
Sex, Sharks & Cancer
Science & Tech  (tags: research, science, discovery, mammals, Parthenogenesis, biology, zoology, health, tumors, investigation )

- 2468 days ago -
Parthenogenesis phenomenon is females of a certain species giving birth without sexual contact with males.These events in mammals lead to abnormal growths & tumors.Studying these events may shed light on the mechanisms of gonad-related tumors in humans.
Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow:Researchers Investigate Why Some Animals Regrow Hearing Cells,But People Don't
Science & Tech  (tags: neurology, research, science, study, genetics, hearing, hair cells, mammals, anatomy, study )

- 2472 days ago -
When birds,reptiles,fish,& amphibians lose cells that enable them to hear,they have the enviable capacity to regenerate those cells & regain their hearing. A neurobiologist is studying genetic mutations in zebrafish that have the same hair cells as humans
For Mammals, Loss of Yolk & Gain of Milk Went Hand in Hand
Science & Tech  (tags: research, science, study, mammals, therian, eutherian (placental) and metatherian (m, placenta )

- 2472 days ago -
The major egg yolk genes,those that express vitellogenins appear to have progressively lost their functionality during mammalian evolution,probably due to the emergence of the mammalian-specific developmental nourishment resources,lactation,& placentation
