Genetic study of ‘co-evolution’ could provide clues to better food production

22 junio 2015

In 1964, renowned biologists Peter Raven and Paul Erhlich published a landmark study that introduced the concept of co-evolution. Now, an international team of researchers has used genomics to analyze the co-evolution theory and identified the mechanisms responsible for this phenomenon. Scientists believe that understanding how co-evolution works could help provide clues for producing heartier plants and food for a growing global population.
