Quotes

"So, there's a clear signature that reproductive strategies change throughout vertebrate evolution internal-external, flipping back and forth more than might commonly be considered" says Michael Coates, an evolutionary biologist from the University of Chicago in the USA
And lastly: don't take it too seriously! As Te Manu says: "Just have fun in the water, that's what it's all about."
Their broad hips also allowed for another important modification: large buttocks, a feature shared with other walking species. "These muscles are larger in humans than in (other) apes, and among other things they prevent us from toppling over when we stand on one leg" she says
The take-home message is that even species-rich systems can be vulnerable. "In essence, it is the quality of biodiversity that is important not just the quantity" David says
