What are hundreds of skeletons doing at the bottom of a lake in an icy Himalayan wasteland? When the snow melts, it pulls back a frozen curtain, exposing 600-800 skeletons, some 1,200 years old! What spooky secrets does Roopkund Lake in Uttarakhand hold? 1/5 #Archaeology Image
At an elevation of 5,029 m, Roopkund Lake is very remote. One theory is that these are the remains of a King, his family and attendants, who died here while on a pilgrimage 1,000 years ago. Other theories include fallen soldiers during war and victims of an epidemic. 2/5 Image
The mystery deepened recently, when studies revealed some astonishing results. The deceased were from diverse ethnic groups. More incredible, they belonged to different time periods! This means they did not all die from a single catastrophic event. 3/5 Image

@JorgeCBerny @juliosbernal The graphic of @Conabio summarizes current information on the age of #archaeobotany remains of main #Mesoamerica crops. But it does not discuss or qualify these findings. 1/n
@JorgeCBerny @juliosbernal @Conabio 1) There are relatively few #archaeobotany sites in #Mesoamerica compared with. e.g., #FertileCrescent. So, are current finds representative of the #domestication age of the different #crops ? I doubt it. 2/n
@JorgeCBerny @juliosbernal @Conabio Even the oldest remains (squash, maize) are fully domesticated and do not include a transition from wild to domesticated. So, their domestication could be even older. 3/n

Thank you @IWS_Network for giving me the opportunity to share my #story 💜 ! This a part of Voices Without Frontiers program iwsnetwork.ca/voices-without… #IWS #WomenInSTEM #VoicesIWS #ecology #conservation #biodiversity
I was born in #saopaulo, #Brazil’s largest city, very different from the #Amazon Rainforest & Rio! See me and a #samauma, the most famous Amazon tree 🌳
Also me & @IsabelaHissa in front of Sao Paulo’s #MASP (Modern Art Museum) & me and my mom in #Rio! #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Image
I can say I lived in a great #rainforest because Sao Paulo & most of the coast of Brazil are in the Atlantic Forest 🌴🌺🐍. It is one of the 34 world’s #hotspots of #biodiversity, with more than 1500 plant species and 90% of original area loss. #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Source: https://www.e-educa...

As requested by @TamarHaspel here is a brief tweetorial on my latest @NatureRevGenet review on the #genetics 🧬 of #obesity rdcu.be/cyjVV 🧵👇 1/7
While changes in the environment have driven its increased prevalence, obesity results from interaction between environmental & biological factors. Crucially, there is a strong genetic component underlying the large variation in body-weight in today’s ‘obesogenic’ environment 2/7
Classically, we’ve considered obesity in two broad categories; obesity resulting from mutations in single genes, typically rare, starting in childhood & severe; & ‘common’ obesity, a result of hundreds of genetic variants that each have a small effect 3/7

Once #feralpests were removed and undetected on #cameratraps or other surveys in the Taronga Western Plains Zoo sanctuary for some time, it was time to cut the ribbon, and the apron strings, and release the #bilby founders. #ScienceWeek
Of course, all #bilbies underwent thorough health checks with the Taronga Western Plains Zoo veterinary professionals prior to release. #WildlifeHealth
“Allow me to reintroduce myself”… some #bilbies were super keen to get on with the program, digging out of the pre-release yard into the #sanctuary. Fortunately, their radio-transmitters allowed the team to locate, catch and return them, ready for the official release.

Check out our latest preprint: the relevance of pedigrees in the conservation genomics era bit.ly/3wCO7DH. TLDR: it’s not either/or when it comes to #pedigrees & #genomics. Having both helps researchers address more conservation questions than one data set alone. 🧵 1/10
Conservation #genetics 🧬 has developed a substantive toolbox 🔧 to inform species management. While much discussion has been dedicated towards genomic advances, there remains one long-standing tool in #ConGen that is often overlooked: the pedigree. 2/10
Pedigrees have been used to understand and manage diversity in threatened populations for decades. But, caveats like assumed founder relatedness, missing data, and errors can make them tricky to use. See Forsdick et al (ecoevorxiv.org/7bnjw/) for more. 3/10

Você sabia que as plantas nem sempre foram como as encontramos no supermercado? Na thread de hoje explicamos um pouco sobre a domesticação das espécies vegetais. Segue o fio →
Com o surgimento da agricultura surgiu também o processo de domesticação das espécies. Espécies domesticadas são aquelas cujo o homem conduziu seu processo evolutivo, não necessariamente, as adaptando para o que seria mais vantajoso à espécie e sim às necessidades humanas (...)
(...)
Dessa forma, as espécies domesticadas são mais ou menos dependentes do homem de acordo com o seu grau de domesticação. Os principais processos evolutivos envolvidos são:
- mutação;
- hibridação interespecífica;
- poliploidia e
- seleção artificial.
