Climate change sparks quickest evolution

AFP: At least one fish species can adapt in just three generations to survive a sharp change in temperature, researchers say in a study on the fastest rate of evolution ever recorded in wild animals. "Our study is the first to experimentally show that certain species in the wild could adapt to climate change very rapidly," lead researcher Rowan Barrett said on Friday. However, the University of British Columbia (UBC) evolutionary geneticist warned, the evolutionary jump carries a ......
