    DNA regions may evolve differently
    The  adaptive  history  of  coding  and  noncoding  sequences seems to be decoupled. Ref. Art.: Santpere G, Carnero-Montoro E, [7 authors], Navarro A, and Bosch E (2015). Analysis of Five Gene Sets in Chimpanzees Suggests Decoupling between the Action of Selection on Protein-Coding and on Noncoding Elements. Genome Biol Evol

    Chasing butterflies in Southern Italy
    Last week, Roger Vila and colleagues from IBE (CSIC-UPF), travelled across gorgeous italian landscapes to study and collect butterflies, in order to discover and describe their still largely unknown diversity. The trip was part of the Butterfly Week, a research initiative that involves researchers and citizens.

    Origin and evolution of lysyl oxidases
    New study provides a taxon-wide evolutionary analysis of LOX, a key enzyme in for the extracellular matrix. Scientists show that LOXs have a pre-animal ancestry, being present already in archaea and bacteria. Ref. Art.: Grau-Bové, X., Ruiz-Trillo, I., Rodriguez-Pascual, E. (2015). Origin and evolution of lysyl oxidases. Scientific Reports.

    Robots that have evolved their own language
    Luc Steels conducted the first large-scale experiment that entailed communication between humans and robots. Now, publishes The Talking Heads Experiment: origins of words and meanings, the book that describes in detail the results of the experiment.

    When Red Natura it is not enough
    Scientists found no differences in the levels of representation between protected species and those which are not. Ref.Art.: Lison F, Sanchez-Fernandez D, and Calvo JF (2015). Are species listed in the Annex II of the Habitats Directive better represented in Natura 2000 network than the remaining species? A test using Spanish bats. Biodiversity and Conservation
