Nutrient-dependent / pheromone-controlled social structure

Wang et al (2013) make it clearer that epigenetic modifications of genes found in social chromosomes entered continuum of adaptive evolution before the sex chromosomes.

Random mutations: nothing adaptive in 3 billion years

This is an open access article. Any advocate of adaptive evolution via random mutations can attempt to find evidence that I could not find by scanning it.

Hormones effect sensitivity to androsterone

Our [androstenol/androsterone] mixture characterizes species-specific human pheromones, their epigenetic effects on physiology, and their affect on behavior.

Evolved development of olfactory systems

how much longer it will be until the “bird watchers” realize that the molecular mechanisms of how olfactory/pheromonal input epigenetically effects adaptively evolved behaviors are the same in species from microbes to man, and species of birds are included.

A “new” view of evolution sans mutations

Is there a simpler “proof” that makes those who think that random mutations cause adaptive evolution appear even more ridiculous?

Epigenetics and metabolism converge with pheromone production

Shall we attribute to him the inability to see that metabolism and epigenetics converge with food odors and the metabolism of nutrient chemicals to pheromones that act on precisely the same molecular mechanisms of adaptive evolution found in species from microbes to man?

Epigenetic maintenance of transcription / neuronal migration

I think what they’ve just shown us exemplifies the molecular biology of epigenetically driven adaptive evolution.

Non-random evolution of a “molecular handshake”

glucose is a conserved energy source for yeasts and it also regulates gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) neurosecretory cells of brain tissue

Adaptive evolution: Genetic selection against some disorders

a model for adaptive evolution, for example, that is not nutrient chemical-dependent and pheromone-controlled?
