The same way that evolutionary theory predicts that a group of animals would speciate in a new habitat, I expect the business models in the pharma industry to multiply.
This inconsistency may be due to two reasons: first, the difference in methodology of collecting mosquitoes in the houses compared to collecting them outside and, second, using different classification keys to speciate the mosquitoes collected.
During the early evolution of these groups," Smith said, "there is the development of features that we often recognise to identify these groups visually, but they don't begin to speciate rapidly until after the development of the features.
If the X-autosome centric fusion occurs at a more or less constant rate in the evolutionary history of the Acridoidea, it is expected that earlier fusions gave the involved species enough time to speciate, giving rise to higher taxa.
