Blowfly maggot feeding, SEM Featured 8 Jan 2003 Print

Blowfly maggot feeding, SEM

Blowfly maggot feeding. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a Calliphora vicina blowfly maggot (larva) feeding on liver tissue. A blowfly lays its eggs on dead bodies and this behaviour is studied by forensic entomologists. This maggot is buried in its meal, breathing through holes about its anus (yellow). A Calliphora blowfly maggot can grow quickly, developing from egg to pupa in 2-3 weeks. The growth rate depends upon temperature, so the size of a maggot and the temperature can allow the time of death to be estimated. Other clues from blowfly maggots include traces of drugs or poison in the maggots, ingested from the dead body. Magnification unknown

Prepared neanderthal bones for DNA extraction Featured 8 Jan 2003 Print

Prepared neanderthal bones for DNA extraction

MODEL RELEASED. Neanderthal genetics. Technician prepares a sample of bone from a fossil of a Neanderthal human, Homo sapiens neanderthalis, for an analysis of its DNA genetic material. Neanderthals were early humans who lived in Europe and the Middle East from 100, 000 to 30, 000 years ago. Compared to modern humans, Neanderthals had a relatively large face with a sloping forehead, brow ridge and no chin. It has been suggested that Neanderthals were the ancestors of modern Europeans. Comparisons of DNA extracted from Neanderthal fossils with modern DNA have shown that this is unlikely. Photographed in Svante Paabo's laboratory at Munich University, Germany
