Birds are shrinking as the climate warms

Field Museum

Every day in the spring and fall since 1978, scientists and volunteers at Chicago's Field Museum have gotten up as early as 3:30 in the morning to collect fallen birds that have crashed into nearby buildings' windows.

Inbreeding, Small Populations, and Demographic Fluctuations Alone Could Have Led to Neanderthal Extinction

PLOS

Small populations, inbreeding, and random demographic fluctuations could have been enough to cause Neanderthal extinction, according to a study published November 27, 2019 in the open-access journal PLOS ONE by Krist Vaesen from Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands, and colleagues.

Fossils Reveal Swimming Patterns of Long Extinct Cephalopod

American Physical Society's Division of Fluid Dynamics

Computational fluid dynamics can be used to study how extinct animals used to swim. Scientists studied 65 million-year-old cephalopod fossils to gain deeper understanding of modern-day cephalopod ecosystems.

Fossil suggests apes, old world monkeys moved in opposite directions from shared ancestor

American Museum of Natural History

In terms of their body plan, Old World monkeys--a group that includes primates like baboons and macaques--are generally considered more similar to ancestral species than apes are. But a new study that analyzes the first well-preserved femur of Aegyptopithecus zeuxis
