Quotes

"If birds develop a simple olfactory preference for their own 'group' odours - probably originally shaped by different ecologies and/or environmental conditions, for example, foraging - this might isolate groups of phylogenetically-close subjects and lead to speciation"
"They were larger when living in areas with human structures, less leaf litter and less vegetation" says lead author Dr Elizabeth Lowe from the University of Sydney
...Tom Jefferson, from environmental consulting company, Clymene Enterprises. "We did not see species-level differences until we started looking at the genetic data in the last few years."
"Jellyfish always have tentacles ... that's how they catch their food," she said. "The tentacles are where they concentrate their stinging cells."
