The females leave the nest after finishing laying to let the males incubate the eggs and take care of the young.
By Jessica Ruvinsky November 6, 1: Instead, says the hermit scientist, she is the future: The rest of us? Our anthropologist supposes that hypersociality has created a poisonous overgrowth of society curable only by turning inward, and that autism the diagnosis of which has increased tenfold arose to accomplish that.
Even so, the basic idea is great. It IS possible that autism could be the next stage in evolution. Lucy, the current offering from the E.
Just look at online dating! I have been undergoing a profound change in my experience of the world in the last few months, which has been diagnosed as fibromyalgia. This is actually a huge advantage economically. Anonymous User I find the comment questioning the rise in the number of autism cases to be quite offensive.
The author needs to do more research. My son is autistic and believe me, I wish more than anything in this world that he did not have it.
Why is this happening to our kids? What can be done about stopping it? It does spin it in a more sinister fashion, though. Anna This causes me to entertain an amusing notion. The effects of overpopulation could possibly destroy the earth and the existence of humans altogether.
The uncertain part maybe necessarily uncertain is to what extent it has gone undiagnosed in the past. Luckily, tracking down the history is not the only way to track down the cause.
The presence of the compound has but to reach a threshhold, and the brain develops in such a way as to limit the organisms reproduction while still allowing it to be fairly survivable.
This could be a long present adaptation meant to allow a population to self-limit. The conclusion would be that the rise in autism is the result of more pregnant women living in densely populated areas, orthat the presence of that environmental factor has reached that threshhold by some other cause.
Anonymous User No, I am not sure. It was simply another theory. Thank you for doing me the honor of entertaining my little idea intelligently, though, unlike some people.
Anonymous User Yes, but what would that strange, as-yet unidentified chemical BE? Before we search for hypotheses that support the claim made in this loosely-based-on-fact play, we need to find out more about autism itself. And — is it really viable that there would be a special chemical that triggered it based on population density?
But, if we are to do so, we need to first look at all the other, inglorious, theories that are much more realistic.
And being mildy paranoid. Anonymous User We live in an increasingly knowledge based society, it no longer matters if you are an asocial 98 pound weakling instead of a caveman when it comes to daily survival. Look at Bill Gates.In British waters the sea orange, also known as the sulphur sponge, is the classic example of a sponge.
It forms a fairly large rounded mass with an even, but slightly rough, surface in which there are a vast number of tiny pores through which water is drawn in. Garter snakes are generalist predators although they seem to have a liking for anurans (frogs). Several attributes compensates the garter snake for its mellow nature and lack of focus when choosing prey.

They have two strategies when foraging for prey; active and passive. Active predation means hunting by seeking out or searching for their prey. Set your Twitter account name in your settings to use the TwitterBar Section.
