Ravens Are Evolving, and Not in the Way You'd Expect National Geographic Instead of branching into new species, raven groups experienced something called "speciation reversal." Thanks to my student, Lori, for sharing this!

Link A brand new species by sympatric speciation!
A brand new species by sympatric speciation has been reported at the beginning of 2018! The New York Times article I've posted explains the history and importance of this event in non-scientific language, but I recommend that you take a look at the actual research paper published in Nature Ecology and Evolution at the link shown here------- This is a magnificent example of speciation by sympatric means, and is the best example I know of demonstrating the almost instantaneous appearance of a new species by a whole genome nondisjunction event. I would hesitate to characterize this event as a mutation, as you see in The Times article, since much work still needs to be done concerning the actual DNA sequences involved. It most certainly appears to be a stunning example of gene duplication in an animal species, and seems to have happened recently in a completely natural environment. Please also look at the "Evolution of Wheat" paper I've posted in this section for another example of speciation by ploidy. This event was of incalculable importance to humans in the Fertile Crescent!----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Nature Ecology and Evolution is an offshoot of the journal Nature, one of the most important and prestigious scientific journals in the world. Papers published in Nature have been subjected to peer review, and demonstrate a high degree of scientific rigor and confidence. In 1953, Nature published James Watson's and Francis Crick's landmark paper which first outlined the structure of DNA, for which they both received the Nobel Prize in 1962.---------------------------------------------------------------
