The sources have revealed that this new species looks almost identical to the scalloped hammerhead. But this species is very different genetically as it consists of about 10 fewer vertebrae, which are also known as the segments of backbone.

Palaeontologists have uncovered new confirmation that species have a tendency to therapist throughout times of arresting warming. A hotter planet could be a more modest planet if the confirmation of the past is any aide.

Specialists have more than once watched that tribal primates, stallions and deer dwindled throughout a hot spell called the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum, 55 million years prior.

Link between Pacific Ocean’s Changing Temperatures and Tornado Occurrence in US Found

Link between Pacific Ocean’s Changing Temperatures and Tornado Occurrence in US Found

A research has been carried out by a group of researchers from the University of Missouri (MU). As per which, they have found a connection between changing temperatures of Pacific Ocean and locations, where tornadoes take place in the United States.

In order to reach at the above given result, study researchers have assessed 56,457 tornado-like events that has taken place from 1950 to 2011. After assessing the same, the study researchers were able to reach at the above given result that when Pacific Ocean temperatures were warmer then the US has experienced 20.3% more tornadoes.
