Rock Layers: Timeline of Life on EarthEvolution is a complicated subject. While everybody understands that black bears are related to grizzly bears and we can even figure they are related to extinct bears, lots of people wonder how scientists can be so sure that bears are related to salmon as well.    One evidence is rock layers—specifically, what is called the geologic column. Basically, scientists have learned that rocks are stacked in layers containing fossils with the oldest fossils at…

Triceratops and Torosaurus dinosaurs 'two species, not one' ... A study has rejected claims that Triceratops and the lesser-known Torosaurus are one and the same type of dinosaur. Research published in 2010 suggested the two-horned animals represented merely different growth stages, with Torosaurus the adult and Triceratops the youngster. But researchers at Yale University say the fossils do not support the theory. More here... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-17192624
