Tree of Life refutes Darwin's theory - VIDEO PDF Print E-mail

A team of researchers from Temple University in Philadelphia, USA, conducted a large-scale analysis of biological data to determine patterns of development of biodiversity in the world. Compiled by scientists tree of life (TimeTree of Life), adjusted for the time showed that the appearance of new species and the extension of intraspecific populations always proceeded at a constant speed.

"Constant Speed ​​biological diversification, which we found in the latest study refutes the conventional theory, predicts slowing growth rate of biological diversity and ecological niches to fill existing types" - said the study's lead author, Professor Blair Hedges (Blair Hedges), an evolutionary biologist at Temple University .

The Tree of Life, composed team Hedges, is in fact a growth pattern Earth's biological diversity over time. Unlike similar standard models of new focuses not so much on the origin of the different species, as in the time of their appearance. Biologists from Temple University made a temporary spiral, including events Branch 50 thoUSAnd species from their ancestors.

To make such a scheme, the researchers painstakingly collected data in 2274 molecular studies, 96% of which were published in the form of scientific articles in the past decade - from 2005 to 2015. Specifically for the meta-analysis team created special computer algorithms and informatics tools that allow them to create the largest tree-adjusted life-time, based on the results of previous studies in the field of evolutionary biology.

The results of this study have shaken the foundations of the foundation - the importance of natural selection described by Charles Darwin more. According to the scheme drawn up, the main driving force behind the diversification of species adaptation was not so much as the appearance of random genetic events, and geographic isolation.

"Our study shows that the speciation and biological diversification stand apart from the adaptation. However, these findings do not contradict the principles of Darwinism, because we believe that the process of adaptation plays a role. Another issue is that our scheme is contrary to the popular hypothesis, which states, what adaptation leads to speciation "- explains Professor Hedges, whose many articles about the opening of the new principles of life can be found in the journal Molecular Biology and Evolution.

According to the study authors, their technique, on which work has been going on for about 20 years, will identify new patterns and to make discoveries and other scientific fields, for example, in the study of diseases or climatological factors influencing the biology of the Earth.

The scientists noted in a press release that their work is not finished yet. If at this stage able to identify new patterns of speciation and development of biological diversification, further Hedges and his colleagues hope to "determine the time frame of life on Earth."

This means that in the near future, biologists want to determine when there was every appearance, at which point he was separated from the parent, and what was the biodiversity of our planet four billion years ago. information about the patterns of life on Earth will also make different predictions for the future.
