Utah State study shows evolution can be predictable 22.5.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
A new study from Utah State University could help scientists forecast how and whether creatures can adapt to habitat shifts like climate change. “As we change the landscape, change the environment, it would be nice to know how populations can evolve or not,” said USU scientist Zachariah Gompert. “It seems like there are components that are predictable.” While chance has a large hand in genetic mutations, Gompert’s new study of insect genomes published in the journal Science shows there are some...
