New research into the evolution of jawed animals by Dr Philip Anderson in the School of Earth Sciences, was reported in The New York Times, Scientific American and The Australian.

New research which found that with the evolution of jaws some 420 million years ago, jawed animals diversified rapidly into a range of niches that remained stable for the following 80 million years, was covered by The New York Times, Scientific American, The Australian and a number of science websites.  

The study was carried out by Dr Philip Anderson of Bristol’s School of Earth Sciences with colleagues from the Universities of Oxford and Leiden.  Their findings were published  in the leading scientific journal Nature.
