Blind Cave Fish for Aquariums.
Natural Selection Or Genetic Drift.
"Regressive evolution," or the reduction of traits over time, is the result of either natural selection or genetic drift, according to a study on cavefish by researchers at New York University's Department of Biology, the University of California at Berkeley's Department of Integrative Biology, and the Harvard Medical School. Previously, scientists could not determine which forces contributed to regressive evolution in cave-adapted species, and many doubt the role of natural selection in this process. Darwin himself, who famously questioned the role of natural selection in eye loss in cave fishes, said, "As it is difficult to imagine that eyes, although useless, could be in any way injurious to animals living in darkness, I attribute their loss wholly to disuse." Click here to read more.
Placoderm eye socket
Australian National University
Fresh Fossil Evidence Of Eye Forerunner.
Ancient armoured fish fossils from Australia present some of the first definite fossil evidence of a forerunner to the human eye, a scientist from The Australian National University says. Dr Gavin Young from the Department of Earth and Marine Sciences at ANU has analysed fossilised remains of 400-million-year-old Devonian placoderms – jawed ancestors of modern fish whose bodies were protected by thick bony armour. “The ancient limestone reefs exposed around Lake Burrinjuck in New South Wales have produced exceptionally well preserved placoderm specimens with the braincase intact,” Dr Young said. Click here to read more.
Two tone Lobster
Nova Scotia
Rare two-toned Lobster Caught off Nova Scotia.
A Nova Scotia fisherman made a rare catch this week when he hauled up a two-toned lobster in St. Mary's Bay. The lobster is divided into two colours straight down the middle of its back -- dull green on one side and bright orange on the other. The fisherman who owns the trap the female lobster was caught in has named it Jay after his son, who hauled it on board their boat on Jan. 8. Jay the lobster has been donated to the Bedford Institute of Oceanography in Dartmouth, N.S., as an educational exhibit. "We got the call [Thursday] about the lobster," Doug Pezzack, a lobster biologist with the institute said Friday. "It's a very uncommon catch. Every year, 20 to 30 million lobsters are trapped [in the area] and we only hear about one or two of these a year." Pezzack said the fisherman had to get special permission from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans to keep the lobster because of its small size. It measures just 83 millimeters from eye to tail, and weighs 0.36 kilograms. Typically, lobsters are a mishmash of greens and blues, but Pezzack said sometimes strange lobsters like Jay are discovered, or even rarer ones that are bright blue, all orange or albino. Pezzack thinks this particular lobster has a genetic mutation. Click here to read more.
Crocodile Dinosaur
University of Bristol, England, UK,

Unusual British Dinosaur had Crocodile Skull.

An unusual British dinosaur has been shown to have a skull that functioned like a fish-eating crocodile, despite looking like a dinosaur. It also possessed two huge hand claws, perhaps used as grappling hooks to lift fish from the water. Dr Emily Rayfield at the University of Bristol used computer modelling techniques – more commonly used to discover how a car bonnet buckles during a crash – to show that while Baryonyx was eating, its skull bent and stretched in the same way as the skull of the Indian fish-eating gharial – a crocodile with long, narrow jaws. Click here to read more.

From Joshua from Okemos, Michigan,
Hello Tom, Nevin, And Fellow Listeners, I am sorry it has been since a long time since my last email. We have been very busy at the store plus I was out of commision with a really nasty cold. Last Saturday I had the chance to go to Grand Rapids MI to hear Karen Randall speak at two meetings. I was blown away by her vast knowledge of aquatic plants and aquascaping. I was also very impressed with how down to earth she is. It is hard to find a true expert who is not compeled to display a god like mentality. Anyway, If you ever get a chance to hear her speak go for it. I know you wont be dissapointed. So on to the news....:)
