Read the whole story at Pharyngula. A lizzard species introduced on a small island evolved a completely new organ to adapt to a rather radical diet change in only about thirty generations (introduction dates from 1971). Really cool evolution story to store. On their way they became shorter on leggs, have a bigger mouth though they don’t shout at each other since they also turned from territorial creatures into more communal neighbours.
Nothing to do with lizzards, something I thought to blog about but a colleague did it just better than I would have done. The experiment described above is (sort of) not cool, or at least unethical, because it hurts plainfully “plant dignity” (’cause those creepy lizzards have gone veggan). Yep, somewhere on earth there will be committees to investigate if planned experiments are not going to be damaging plant dignity. What is the next swearword?
