RESEARCH AT CHICAGO
SURVIVING A MASS EXTINCTION DOESN'T ENSURE...SURVIVAL
A significant number of organisms that survived Earth's five greatest mass extinctions went on to lose the evolutionary game. So says a new study by Chicago's David Jablonski, citing evidence from paleontological literature and his own work on the aftermath of mass extinction at the end of the Mesozoic Era.

UPDATE FROM THE GENETIC TWILIGHT ZONE
What is the genetic basis for evolutionary change? What forces cause different species to evolve? Chicago evolutionary biologist Chung-i Wu believes that natural selection plays a major role even at the genetic level and, in competitive environments, actually speeds up.
