Japanese ricefish ... in the rift valley lakes ...[edit]

Hi, I was amused to find that with this edit back in 2013 you suggested that the rift valley cichlids diversified from the Japanese ricefish... an IP spotted it just now and ripped out the sentence. Since it's all true apart from the name of the species, I'll put most of it back. I had somewhat naughtily hoped it would prove to be a hoax, but I don't think that's the case here... All the best, Chiswick Chap (talk) 19:39, 6 February 2017 (UTC)

So good of you to have noticed that. My statement was, "All the species have diversified from a common ancestral fish (Oryzias latipes) about 113 million years ago." But If I had stated "...a common ancestral fish with that of [just for emphasis] Oryzias latipes..." it would have made perfect sense. The original source did say, "Further, [cichlids] being approximately 113 ± 11 Myr diverged from medaka (Oryzias latipes)." (Fan et al. 2012) It does create the impression that cichlids evolved from medaka, while it only means that they shared a common ancestor. In fact, it is now known that the ancestral lineage is the Nile Tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) from which they diverged around ~15 mya. It is not a hoax, or a fatal mistake for that matter.

Indeed. I think it might be best if you felt like saying something like that in the article. Many thanks, Chiswick Chap (talk) 09:14, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

Thank you very much. I am grateful to Evolution and evolvability for the edits, and particularly for an excellent suggestion. I have added the image accordingly. Chhandama (talk) 09:42, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
Great! Please also reference to the image in the text too; probably either in the structure or function section. Mikael Häggström (talk) 20:15, 9 March 2017 (UTC)
It was already cited in the function. Chhandama (talk) 03:09, 10 March 2017 (UTC)
Great. I can now announce that your article is published! Its entry on the main page includes some of the abstract: Wikiversity:WikiJournal of Medicine/Volume 4 Issue 1. Let me know if you want a different image or format there. Mikael Häggström (talk) 09:00, 11 March 2017 (UTC)
Thank you very much indeed. Chhandama (talk) 09:57, 11 March 2017 (UTC)
You're welcome. Also, the version in Wikipedia looks really nice! Mikael Häggström (talk) 12:33, 11 March 2017 (UTC)

Endosymbiosis[edit]

Symbiogenesis deals just with a couple instances of endosymbiosis, wherease the article on endosymbionts is the main article for endosymbiosis a general concept. The original article on endosymbiosis was merged with the one on endosymbionts for similar reasons that symbiont and symbiosis are one and the same article (currently located at symbiosis). --Njardarlogar (talk) 09:43, 12 March 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for clarifying. However, I would argue that symbiogenesis and endosymbiosis are used to imply the same meaning in evolutionary biology; they both explain both the theory and the process (see some recent literature [2], [3], [4], etc. I cannot trace who first used endosymbiosis or endosymbiotic theory, but the better terminology (historically and technically, to my opinion) is symbiogenesis. It is precisely for this reason that I helped merging the page. Chhandama (talk) 03:14, 13 March 2017 (UTC)

He has contributed extensively to the article about Rosalind Franklin, a noted English chemist. Chhandama has rollback and page reviewer rights and is a pending changes reviewer.

Thanks again for your efforts! Lepricavark (talk) 17:26, 26 March 2017 (UTC)

Thank you so much for appreciating my Wikiholicisms! Like any other Wiki honour/award, this (rather useless one in a practical sense) is gratifying, and I hope it serves to gee up our editing enthusiasm. Let's make Wikipedia the best source of wholesome knowledge. Chhandama (talk) 02:42, 27 March 2017 (UTC)
