미국 연구진이 진화론을 증명했다는 논문을 내놓았다고한다.

Island tameness: living on islands reduces flight initiation distance
(William E. Cooper Jr, R. Alexander Pyron and Theodore Garland Jr.)

Abstract:
One of Darwin's most widely known conjectures is that prey are tame on remote islands, where mammalian predators are absent. Many species appear to permit close approach on such islands, but no comparative studies have demonstrated reduced wariness quantified as flight initiation distance (FID; i.e. predator–prey distance when the prey begins to flee) in comparison with mainland relatives. We used the phylogenetic comparative method to assess influence of distance from the mainland and island area on FID of 66 lizard species. Because body size and predator approach speed affect predation risk, we included these as independent variables. Multiple regression showed that FID decreases as distance from mainland increases and is shorter in island than mainland populations. Although FID increased as area increased in some models, collinearity made it difficult to separate effects of area from distance and island occupancy. FID increases as SVL increases and approach speed increases; these effects are statistically independent of effects of distance to mainland and island occupancy. Ordinary least-squares models fit the data better than phylogenetic regressions, indicating little or no phylogenetic signal in residual FID after accounting for the independent variables. Our results demonstrate that island tameness is a real phenomenon in lizards.

연합뉴스 보도인데 좀 더 정확히 쓴 기사같다.


여긴 댓글 안달리는걸 보니, 확실히 사람들은 제목만 보고 댓글을 다는 것으로 보인다.

    우리나라는 황우석 사건때는 전국민이 유전공학 전문가가 되고 월드컵때는 축구 전문가가 되는 신기한 나라죠.

      그러나 그중에 제대로 된 전문가가 별로 없지.
