How and Why Single Cell Organisms Evolved into Multicellular Life

April 25, 2016 2:32 pm | by University of the Witwatersrand | News | Comments

Throughout the history of life on Earth, multicellular life evolved from single cells numerous times, but explaining how this happened is one of the major evolutionary puzzles of our time. However, scientists have now completed a study of the complete DNA of one of the most important model organisms, Gonium pectorale, a simple green algae that comprises only 16 cells.


Do Fish Survive in Streams in Winter?

April 25, 2016 2:26 pm | by Umea University | News | Comments

Most stream-resident fish stay throughout winter despite the ice. This has been shown by researchers by tagging trout and sculpins with transponders to follow fish migration. Fish's general state of health is the single most important factor for surviving winter.
