The finding in the Baetic Cordillera, in Jaén, of the remains of a supposed new species of turtle, Hispaniachelys prebetica - considered the oldest in southern Europe - brought new clues six years ago. However, it was still not clear what group the primitive turtle belonged to. To resolve the matter, researchers studied the as-yet-unanalyzed fossils of the specimen, reinterpreted some of its features and

Squid enrich their DNA 'blueprint' through prolific RNA editing | marine biology | Scoop.it
RNA editing of genomic information was thought to be sparingly used, based on a limited number of studies in mammals and flies. But recently, investigators discovered the most prolific usage yet of RNA editing in the common squid, Doryteuthis pealeii, a behaviorally sophisticated marine organism that has long been prized for studies of the nervous system.

Scientists reconstruct evolutionary history of whale hearing with rare museum collection | marine biology | Scoop.it
Scientists CT scanned fetal whale specimens from the museum's marine mammal collection to trace the development of fetal ear bones in 56 specimens from 10 different whale families. Their findings confirmed that changes in the development of ear bones in the womb paralleled changes observed throughout whale evolution, providing new insight about how whales made the dramatic evolutionary shift from land to sea and adapted to hearing underwater.
