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.

  • CDC and Texas Health Department confirm first Ebola case diagnosed in the U.S.
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed today, through laboratory tests, the first case of Ebola to be diagnosed in the United States in a person who had traveled to Dallas, Texas from Liberia. The patient did not have symptoms when leaving West Africa, but developed symptoms approximately four days after arriving in the U.S. on Sept. […]
  • Blades of grass inspire advance in organic solar cells
    Using a bio-mimicking analog of one of nature's most efficient light-harvesting structures, blades of grass, an international research team has taken a major step in developing long-sought polymer architecture to boost power-conversion efficiency of light to electricity for use in electronic devices.
  • Study shows how chimpanzees share skills: Evidence of new behavior being transmitted socially
    Biologists have found evidence of new behavior being adopted and transmitted socially from one individual to another within a wild chimpanzee community. This is the first instance of social learning recorded in the wild.
  • How dinosaur arms turned into bird wings
    Although we now appreciate that birds evolved from a branch of the dinosaur family tree, a crucial adaptation for flight has continued to puzzle evolutionary biologists. During the millions of years that elapsed, wrists went from straight to bent and hyperflexible, allowing birds to fold their wings neatly against their bodies when not flying. A resolution t […]
  • High-speed drug screen developed
    Engineers have devised a way to rapidly test hundreds of different drug-delivery vehicles in living animals, making it easier to discover promising new ways to deliver a class of drugs called biologics, which includes antibodies, peptides, RNA, and DNA, to human patients.
