Behind us is a giant volcanic crater called Haleakal?. Along with Kilauea and Mauna Loa, they're the stuff that Hawai'i is made of. The word here is vulcanism, and in these islands, it's as much a threat to human life as are tsunamis and typhoons.

As a boy sitting in Mr. Coy Mabe's 8th grade earth science class, I was bored by...[Read More]

The fossil record offers a surprising image: that of evolutionary radiations characterized by intense increases in cash or by the sudden diversification of a single species group, while others stagnate or die out.

In 1936 a German chemist identified certain organic molecules that he had extracted from ancient rocks and oils as the fossil remains of chlorophyll--presumably from plants that had lived and died millions of years in the past. It was another twenty-five years before this insight was developed and the term "biomarker" coined to describe fossil molecules whose molecu...[Read More]
