Scientists from the University of Adelaide and South Australian Museum have uncovered how some sea snakes have developed 'shrunken heads'.
This process can lead to speciation - one species splitting into two. Their research is published today in the journal Molecular Ecology.
The evolution of scientific imagery has been a long and fascinating journey. See early hand-crafted artistic works to modern microscopy photography in this exhibition from Museum Victoria.
The exhibition opens at the South Australian Museum from 30 March to 19 May 2013. Entry is free.
The 10th anniversary of the Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize™ has done exceptionally well with record entries, record visitation and milestone achievements announced at the close of the 2012 exhibition at the South Australian Museum.
