      Giant Lizards Learnt to Fly Over Millions of Years

      Most detailed every study into how animals evolve to better suit their environments shows that pterosaurs become more efficient at flying over millions of years before going extinct with the ...

      Models for Potential Precursors of Cells Endure Simulated Early-Earth Conditions

      Membraneless compartments -- models for a potential step in the early evolution of cells -- have been shown to persist or form, disappear, and reform in predictable ways through multiple cycles of ...

      Scientists Discover New Organic Compounds That Could Have Helped Form the First Cells

      Chemists studying how life started often focus on biopolymers like peptides and nucleic acids, but modern biopolymers don't form easily without help from living organisms. A possible solution to ...
