Ducklings understand complex concept of ‘same’ and ‘different’: Study

It was considered that abstract relational thinking is unique to humans only, but it is not true, unveils a new study. Researchers from Oxford University have found that newborn ducklings understand complex concepts like same and different, abstractions considered beyond capacity for most animals.

Multiple farmer groups spread farming in Eurasia

Multiple farmer groups spread farming in Eurasia

Research findings published in the journal Science has indicated that farming has resulted from a single source. In fact, multiple farmer groups have been responsible to spread farming across Eurasia. The researchers said that these farmers were genetically different from each other.

Study researchers have unveiled the same after assessing ancient DNA from the remains of four individuals who lived around 10,000 years back on the eastern side of the Fertile Crescent.

Massive black hole growing on sun’s surface, but not a cause of concern: NASA

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory has unveiled about a giant-sized dark spot that has been spreading across the sun’s surface. Known as coronal hole, this spot as per experts would not cause any harm.

Discovery of new population of farmers unveils agriculture techniques developed more than once

Discovery of new population of farmers unveils agriculture techniques developed more than once

Bones and teeth from four ancient human skeletons discovered in the Zagros Mountains of present-day Iran suggest that farming was invented more than one time. The fossils show that these people used eat domesticated crops at least 9,000 years back.

When DNA assessment was carried out, the researchers came to know that none of them belonged to Europe’s first farmers known as the Aegeans. These four individuals belong to a different genetic group that researchers were not aware of.
