Why do Hydra end up with just a single head?

Why do Hydra end up with just a single head? | Soggy Science | Scoop.it
Hydra is able to regenerate any part of its body to rebuild an entire individual. The head organizer performs two opposite activities, one activating, which causes the head to differentiate, and the other inhibiting, which prevents the formation of supernumerary heads. Researchers have discovered the identity of the inhibitor, called Sp5, and deciphered the dialogue between these two antagonistic activities, which helps maintain a single-headed adult body and organize an appropriate regenerative response.

Size matters: To livebearer fish, big fins are a big deal: Females love males with big dorsal fins, but the appendages first evolved for males to fight other males

Size matters: To livebearer fish, big fins are a big deal: Females love males with big dorsal fins, but the appendages first evolved for males to fight other males | Soggy Science | Scoop.it
Biologists studied the evolution of 40 molly and Limia species, and concluded dorsal fin displays arose first for males to compete with other males, only later being used in courtship displays to females. These changes in fin function went hand in hand with enlargement of the male dorsal fin. The fins reached extreme sizes in a few species and appear to be associated with rapid evolution, especially in mollies.
