An interesting discovery re: evolution

A few of you who contribute to discussions re: evolution may remember that I have mentioned my brilliant (he’d blush to hear me say that) and extremely Catholic evolutionary biologist son-in-law. Those of you with an interest in such things might enjoy these links discussing a newly discovered “living fossil”:

My SIL is co-author of the PNAS article published today (9/15), is quoted in the first piece, and is the computational phylogeneticist who did the DNA analysis of the ant.

Just something fun, evolutionarily speaking :slight_smile:
