A ‘social network’ may have associated stable sea animals

Stationary populaces of Earth’s soonest creatures may have been associated with long filaments in a 500 million-year-old example of a social network, researchers say. The filaments were found in fossils of marine animals called rangeomorphs in eastern Newfoundland, as indicated by a report published in the journal Current Biology. Rangeomorphs lived somewhere in the range…

A heat-wave in Antarctica’s northern tip melted 20% of an island’s snow in 9 days

A nine-day heat wave burned Antarctica’s northern tip prior this month. New NASA pictures uncover that about a fourth of an Antarctic island’s snow spread melted in that time – an undeniably common symptom of the atmosphere emergency. The pictures show Eagle Island on the northeastern landmass of the cold mainland toward the beginning and…

Researchers discover oldest-known fossilized digestive tract at 550 million years of age

A 550 million-year-old fossilized digestive tract found in the Nevada desert could be a key find in understanding the early history of creatures on Earth. Over a half-billion years prior, life on Earth was involved in simple ocean organisms unlike anything living in the present oceans. At that point, starting around 540 million years prior,…

Research unwinds puzzle of how early creatures endure ice age

A McGill University-led research group has discovered the first direct proof that glacial meltwater gave a vital lifeline to eukaryotes during Snowball Earth, when the oceans were cut off from life-giving oxygen, responding to an inquiry confounding researchers for years. In a new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of…
