Il Tuatara è un  rettile raro, di medie dimensioni (gli adulti hanno un peso che varia da circa  300 g a 1000 g e possono raggiungere una lunghezza di 60 cm) presenti esclusivamente in Nuova Zelanda; in particolare  sopravvive a fatica in trenta isolotti fra lo Stretto di Cook, la Baia di Planty e il Golfo di Hauraki.

E’  l’unico membro della famiglia Sphenodontidae, ordine Rhynchocephalia ben  rappresentato  da numerose  specie circa 200 milioni di anni fa. Attualmente si conoscono due specie:

  • Climate Change: Dwindling wind may tip predator-prey balance
    Rising temperatures and shifting precipitation patterns may get the lion’s share of our climate change attention, but predators may want to give some thought to wind, according to a zoologist’s study, which is among the first to demonstrate the way “global stilling” may alter predator-prey relationships.
  • Using genetic screening to improve Korean white wheat
    Korean white winter wheat is particularly susceptible to preharvest sprouting, according to researchers. Researchers have identified proteins that are differentially expressed in tolerant cultivars, with the goal of breeding more resistant varieties that can help increase wheat production in Korea.
  • Genetically driven gut feelings help female flies choose a mate
    Even among flies, mating is a complicated ritual. Their elaborate, and entirely innate, courtship dance combines multiple motor skills with advanced sensory cues. Now, researchers have determined that the Abdominal-B (Abd-B) gene, previously known as the gene that sculpts the posterior parts of the developing fly, is also important for this complex behavior, […]
  • A refined approach to proteins at low resolution
    Crystals of membrane proteins and protein complexes often diffract to low resolution owing to their intrinsic molecular flexibility, heterogeneity or the mosaic spread of micro-domains. At low resolution, the building and refinement of atomic models is a more challenging task. The deformable elastic network refinement method developed previously has been ins […]
  • Hadrosaur with huge nose discovered: Function of dinosaur's unusual trait a mystery
    Call it the Jimmy Durante of dinosaurs -- a newly discovered hadrosaur with a truly distinctive nasal profile. The new dinosaur, named Rhinorex condrupus by paleontologists, lived in what is now Utah approximately 75 million years ago during the Late Cretaceous period.
