Submission + - Time Magazine: Wild Sheep Defying Evolution (time.com)

JumperCable writes: From Time magazine, "On Soay Island, off the western coast of Scotland, wild sheep are apparently defying the theory of evolution and progressively getting smaller." The article attributes the shrinking to global warming as the mild winters provide more food for these evolutionary unfit smaller sheep to survive, young mothers as the sheep can give birth at one year of age. I wish the author of the article had put forth a little more information on insular dwarfism and how this has occurred in the past.
