Predicting the distribution of creatures great and small
In studying how animals change size as they evolve, biologists have unearthed several interesting patterns. For instance, most species are small, but the largest members of a taxonomic group — such as the great white shark, the Komodo dragon, or the African elephant — are often thousands or millions of times bigger than the typical species. Now for the first time two SFI researchers explain these patterns within an elegant statistical framework.

This trend may be limiting the creation of new ideas and theories.
