An International group of scientists figured out the exact time and pattern of evolution of insects.
100 scientists from 16 different countries gathered at one platform to determine the timings and pattern of insects. They performed the difficult task in order to form the most comprehensive insect family tree. They utilized the skills of almost every field such as computational biology, statistics, and paleontology, molecular, taxonomic. They named this project as the “1000 Insect Transcriptome Evolution” which signifies the evolutionary history of insects.
Experts analyzed approximately 1,659,420 animals to accomplish the family tree. Among all of these species 80 percent were arthropods and insects which indicates that insects rule the world from the beginning of everything.
The complex study revealed significant information regarding the insects of Earth. It unveiled that the first insect emerged on Planet Earth nearly 500 million years ago. Moreover, the study disclosed that all the precise birth period of the entire major insects group.
Furthermore, the report divulges that insects play a vital role in the economic and medical arena of any country. They have the power to influence our lives in both negative and positive manner. They can pollinate our crops and spread deadly diseases like malaria.
