Scientists Have Discovered An Animal That Doesn’t Need Oxygen To Live

Atkinson co-authored a paper on the groundbreaking, less than 10-called Henneguya Salminicola that appeared in the journal PNAS this week. "When we think of 'animals,' we picture multicellular creatures that need oxygen to survive, unlike many single-celled organisms including protists and bacteria. In our work, we have shown that there is at least one multicellular animal that does not have the genetic toolkit to use oxygen." The H. salminicola is a myxozoan cnidarian, a type of animal related to jellyfish and coral. It lives inside salmon and "steals ready-made nutrients from it, instead of consuming oxygen directly" Atkinson said. The team's findings, he said, expand the definition of what an "animal" can be. It's pretty epic stuff for such a diminutive creature. It Does...

‘Ghost’ Human Ancestor Discovered In West Africa. Linked To Yoruba, Esan People

A mysterious "ghost population" of now-extinct ancient human-like creatures may have interbred with early humans living in West Africa, scientists say. Researchers suggest DNA from this group makes up between 2% and 19% of modern West Africans' genetic ancestry. They believe the interbreeding occurred about 43,000 years ago. Scientists found links to the Mende people of Sierra Leone, Yoruba as well as Esan people in Nigeria, plus other groups in western areas of The Gambia. The new study was published in Science Advances this week. It suggests that ancestors of modern West Africans interbred with a yet-undiscovered species of archaic human, similar to how ancient Europeans mated with Neanderthals, and Oceanic populations with Denisovans.

7,000-Year-Old Well In Eastern Europe Is The Oldest Wooden Structure Ever Discovered

Archaeologists have discovered a 7,000-year-old Neolithic well in eastern Europe, which they believe is the oldest wooden structure in the world. The square well was built with oak by farmers around 5256 B.C., according to researchers who pinpointed its origin after analyzing the tree rings in the wood, which is the scientific method known as dendrochronology. The well's age makes it the oldest dendrochronologically dated archaeological wooden construction worldwide, according to the researchers in the Czech Republic. "The well was only preserved because it had been underwater for centuries. Now we cannot let it dry out, or the well would be destroyed," Karol Bayer of the University of Pardubice's Department of Restoration said in a press release. Researchers are developing a pr...

‘Ghost’ Population Of Humans Discovered In Ancient Africa

During the Stone Age in what is now western Cameroon, four children who perished before their prime were buried in a natural rock shelter.
