Quotes

...In contrast, birds that have evolved more recently or have many common relatives have a low evolutionary distinctiveness. Dr Thomas said: "not all species are evolutionarily equal – some have few close relatives that share their dna. these species are irreplaceable. if they are driven to extinction, millions of years or evolutionary history goes with them."
...to now you could only have guessed roughly where the major evolutionary transitions occurred," said Dr Gavin Thomas of the University of Sheffield, "but the new methods pinpoint the size changes. the small size of birds and their long wings originated long before birds themselves did."
Gavin Thomas , Kingsgate's Managing Director and CEO said, "we are delighted by the results of the feasibility study, which support our long held belief in the underlying quality and inherent value of the nueva esperanza project. the final nueva esperanza definitive feasibility study is a result of over three years continuous evaluation and several iterations to determine the optimal process route delivering the most financially robust outcome."
"the decision to begin construction is anticipated in the second half of this year and will put kingsgate back on a growth path and validate the underlying value of the project acquisition" Thomas said
