Long-moustached short-moustaches: a transitional form between mosquitoes and flies was found in the Triassic
2023-09-15 11:38 The order Diptera includes, as the name implies, insects with only one pair of wings. The body structure of diptera can be reduced to two main types: mosquitoes with multi-lobed antennae and flies with three-lobed antennae. This difference was noticed a long time ago: diptera were divided into long-whiskered Nematocera and short-whiskered Brachycera in the first half of the XIX century. But as often happens...

How Carbon Dioxide Emissions Cause Ocean Acidification
2023-06-09 14:08 For World Oceans Day, which is celebrated on June 8, our colleagues from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have prepared a material explaining how carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere cause acidification of the oceans.Ocean acidification is a consequence of increased carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions causing climate change. The ocean absorbs about a third of all anthropogenic CO2, which lea...
The clams that fell behind, and what they can tell us about evolution and extinction
2023-06-02 09:20 Every so often, life on Earth steps onto a nearly empty playing field and faces a spectacular opportunity. Something major changes—in the atmosphere or in the oceans, or in the organisms themselves —and the existing species begin to branch out into a brand-new world. Scientists are fascinated by this process, because it’s a unique look into evolution at pivotal moments in the history of life. A new study l...
