Nature articles[edit]

There are lots of articles covering this topic in Nature. [1] Unfortunately, they are not freely accessible, but someone elligible for an instuitutional license could access them for expansion. Dhaluza 08:18, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Unclear wording[edit]

Maybe its just me, but I don't understand this: "Where different species can interbreed and their gametes compete then conspecific gametes take precedence over heterospecific gametes. This is known as conspecific sperm precedence or conspecific pollen precedence in plants."

Takes precedence? I don't get what this is trying to say. ANyone else? Does this refer to physical processes (which ?) or nomenclature (like conspecific gametes are ranked first or whatever) or what?

Maybe I'm fruity.--Δζ (talk) 23:33, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

I don't see how is this passage relevant: "See the discussion of mirror neuron in which a neuron fires both when the animal performs an action and when the animal sees another animal perform the same action." (talk) 06:00, 3 December 2009 (UTC)Emil
