Editor’s Selections: Milk, Urine, and Plant DNA – the stuff of life

Editor's Selections 8 Comments
By Jarrett Byrnes

Jarrett ByrnesCiao. I’m Jarrett Byrnes, of I’m a chordata, urochordata!, and I’m one of the editors for Biology here at researchblogging.org. As you may be able to tell from my blog, I’ll be focusing on ecology, environmental sciences, and evolution.

For this week

  • Jeremey of Denim and Tweed reviews recent evidence showing that the human ability to drink milk after weaning evolved independently in different regions for different reasons. In Africa, it was for calories and protein. In pasty white northern Europe, it was due to a need to use lactose to assimilate calcium in the absence of sunlight’s Vitamin D.
  • Karen James discusses recent work by The Consortium for the Barcode Of Life Plant Working Group to create DNA barcodes for plants and her firsthand experiences with the working group.

    I do not know whether it’s just me or if everybody else experiencing
    problems with your blog. It appears as though some of the written text on your content are running off the screen.
    Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know
    if this is happening to them as well? This might be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Appreciate it
