Researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology retrieved Neandertal nuclear DNA from cave deposits in northern Spain and southern Siberia, yielding new clues to the population history of Neandertals.

Neanderthal ancestry identifies oldest modern human genome

In an article published in Nature Ecology & Evolution, researchers analyse the genome of an almost complete skull first discovered in Zlatý K??, Czechia in the early 1950s and now stored in the National Museum in Prague. The segments of Neanderthal DNA in its genome were longer than those of the Ust'-Ishim individual from Siberia, the previous oldest modern human sequenced, suggesting modern humans lived in the heart of Europe more than 45,000 years ago.

Carried with the wind: mass migration of Larch Budmoth to the Russian High Arctic

In the summer of 2020, hundreds of Larch Budmoths were observed on Vize Island, in the Russian High Arctic, likely transported over 1,200 km by air currents from Siberia. This is the first and only terrestrial invertebrate to ever be discovered on the island. This finding could mean that Vize island is less isolated from insect migrants than was commonly thought. The observations were published in the open-access scientific journal Nota Lepidopterologica.
