HOEs and redheads
Not to be too picky. O.K., I will be picky--shouldn`t it be 'Hypothesisers Of Evolution'?

Meanwhile, back at the ranch:
'Redheads to be extinct in 100 years'. The coppertop mutation seems to be receding in the human population. Or it may become dormant.


Do retained mutations give us clues to past environmental conditions? The redhead gene supposedly provided increased amounts of vitamin D from sunlight. Did it arise from a post-impact climate with reduced light?
