moose, dragonflies, owls

3 March 2016

At http://phys.org/print376124193.html … a moose living in western Siberia, in the Tomsk region, has been gene mapped in an attempt to form a link with moose living in Siberia until 30 to 40,000 years ago. They appear to have disappeared – or most of them – but so did lots of other animals at this point in time (and no doubt humans too).

At http://phys.org/print376129772.html … the subject here is the Snowy Owl and a bird that was tagged and travelled to the far north and back to Maryland – stopping enroute on top of a skyscraper in Manhattan.

At http://phys.org/print376153722.html … we have an even more remarkable journey, that of a particular breed of dragonflies that crosses oceans, migrating from continent to continent ….

 …. and finally at http://phys.org/print376147943.html … a genetic study of gorillas seems to show they share in common with humans a similarity in Y-chromosomes.
