First Clone of Endangered Przewalski ’s Horse Born in Conservation Effort to Save the Species
The first successfully cloned endangered Przewalski’s horse was born on Aug. 6 in a veterinary facility in Texas, San Diego Zoo Global announced on Friday.

A discovery in the Isle of Wight should remind us that we are living in a golden age of palaeontologyIt could be said that we live in the age of the dinosaurs. It is, of course, 66m years since agreat extinction wiped out three-quarters of the animals on Earth, including non-avian dinosaurs.

Jurassic fossils from northeastern China reveal morphological stasis in the catkin-yew
(Science China Press) Dong and colleagues studied well-preserved plant fossils from the Middle-Late Jurassic Daohugou Bed in eastern Inner Mongolia, northeastern China. These fossils closely resemble the extant catkin-yews Amentotaxus. They provide unequivocal evidence that the catkin-yews have undergone little morphological change over at least ~160 million years. Like ginkgo, the catkin-yews are living fossils that provide an important new example of evolutionary stasis. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)
