Extinction of the woolly mammoth in Beringia has long been subject to research and speculation. Here we use a new geo-referenced database of radiocarbon-dated evidence to show that mammoths were abundant in the open-habitat of Marine Isotope Stage 3 (∼45-30 ka). During the Last Glacial Maximum (∼25-20 ka), northern populations declined while those in(More)
The five predominant types of rDNA repeats in D. melanogaster were analyzed with respect to their DNase I sensitivity. Only the insert-free repeats showed a generalized DNase I sensitivity pattern whereas the major type I, both minor type I and type II repeats were not as extensively degraded by the nuclease. For XX and XY embryonic nuclei, where there is(More)
