La macrauchenia è un mammifero estinto ‘ultimo  rappresentante dell’ordine dei litopterni, un gruppo di ungulati vissuti in Sudamerica per tutto il Cenozoico (65milioni di anni fa). Si ritiene che la macrauchenia vagava in branchi  nelle sterminate pianure della pampa argentina, brucando le cime degli alberi con l’aiuto della corta proboscide.

UntitledSi estinse al termine del Pleistocene (periodo compreso tra i 2,58 milioni di anni 11.700 anni). L’estinzione non dipese dalle glaciazioni (che non interessarono il Sudamerica) ma da una serie di altri fattori tra i quali l’azione di predatori evoluti provenienti dal nord (come gli Smilodon) e, forse, la caccia dei primi uomini.

  • Supportive moms and sisters boost female baboon's rank
    A study of dominance in female baboons suggests that the route to a higher rank is to maintain close ties with mom, and to have lots of supportive sisters.
  • Saving seeds the right way can save the world's plants
    Exotic pests, shrinking ranges and a changing climate threaten some of the world's most rare and ecologically important plants, and so conservationists establish seed collections to save the seeds in banks or botanical gardens in hopes of preserving some genetic diversity. For decades, these seed collections have been guided by simple models that offer […]
  • Decades-old amber collection offers new views of a lost world: Tiny grasshopper encased in amber
    Scientists are searching through a massive collection of 20-million-year-old amber found in the Dominican Republic more than 50 years ago, and the effort is yielding fresh insights into ancient tropical insects and the world they inhabited. Perhaps the most striking discovery thus far is that of a pygmy locust, a tiny grasshopper the size of a rose thorn tha […]
  • Peru's carbon quantified: Economic and conservation boon
    Today scientists unveiled the first high-resolution map of the carbon stocks stored on land throughout the entire country of Peru. The new and improved methodology used to make the map marks a sea change for future market-based carbon economies. The new carbon map also reveals Peru's extremely high ecological diversity and it provides the critical input […]
  • Chinese mosquitoes on the Baltic Sea: Ancient insect inclusions in East-Asian amber
    The analysis of the roughly 3,000 pieces is still in its infant stage. But it is already evident that the results will be of major significance. The Baltic amber comes from the Baltic Sea region, which is almost 10,000 kilometers from Fushun. Sites rich in finds are, e.g., the coastal regions of Mecklenburg, Poland and Belarus. The pieces from the Baltic reg […]
