The latest results suggest we might have been wrong about one of the fundamental aspects of how species evolve.   Traditionally, researchers predicted that the

For a long while it wasn’t clear whether the island’s native population originated in Polynesia or South America. And how can we explain its apparent paradox: the design, construction and transport of giant “moai” stone statues, a remarkable cultural achievement yet one carried out on a virtually barren island, which seemingly lacked both the resources
