During the early s, the game — which had been around since the s — gained notoriety with WWF-sponsored events that featured wrestlers like Andre the Giant and the Junkyard Dog. Around the same time, a competing wrestling federation emerged with its own behind-the-scenes storylines began stealing marquee names from the WWF — including its star attraction, Hulk Hogan. The move was not seamless. Today, with wrestling spread across three cable networks and poised to jump back onto network TV Thursdays this fall on UPN — not to mention 24 pay-per-view events a year — the game is drawing a redord number of viewers.
Last Monday during primetime, about 7. And I think part of the reason is that they put too much of it on TV. At least one of those storylines took a novel turn last week. Critics of the game note that the staged qualities and scripted outcomes lend themselves more to a silent-movie melodrama than a sport. Anything that is successful on television we can have our show. Her allegations are chilling. The suit claim unsafe working conditions, sexual harassment and steroid use. Appearance is just one. Delmore wanted to know how hybrids might behave differently than their parents. Over time, this species has split into subspecies.
These are groups of animals from the same species that live in different areas. However, when they do encounter each other, they can still breed and produce fertile young.

One subspecies is the russet-backed thrush, which lives on the west coast of the United States and Canada. As its name implies, it has reddish feathers. The olive-backed thrush has greenish-brown feathers and lives farther inland. But these subspecies overlap along the Coast Mountains in western North America.
There, they can mate and produce hybrids.

One difference between the two subspecies is their migration behavior. Both groups of birds breed in North America, then fly south in winter. But russet-backed thrushes migrate down the west coast to land in Mexico and Central America. Olive-backed thrushes fly over the central and eastern United States to settle in South America.
Which directions do hybrids get? To investigate, Delmore trapped hybrid birds in western Canada. She placed tiny backpacks on them. A light sensor in each backpack helped record where the birds went. The birds flew south to their wintering grounds, carrying the backpacks on their journey.
The next summer, Delmore re-captured some of those birds back in Canada. The length of the day and timing of midday differs depending on location. They flew somewhere down the middle. These treks, though, took the birds over rougher terrain, such as deserts and mountains. That could be a problem because those environments might offer less food to survive the long journey. But that strategy might also cause problems. Normally, birds learn cues on their way south to help them navigate back home. They might notice landmarks such as mountains. But if they return by a different path, those landmarks will be absent.
One result: The birds migration might take longer to complete. These new data might explain why the subspecies have remained separate, Delmore says. Following a different path may mean that hybrid birds tend to be weaker when they reach the mating grounds — or have a lower chance of surviving their yearly journeys. If hybrids survived as well as their parents, DNA from the two subspecies would mix more often.

Eventually these subspecies would fuse into one group. Sometimes, hybrids are shaped differently than their parents. And that can affect how well they avoid predators. Anders Nilsson recently stumbled onto this finding. He is a biologist at Lund University in Sweden. In , his team was studying two fish species named common bream and roach not to be confused with the insect. Both fish live in a lake in Denmark and migrate into streams during winter.
To study their behavior, Nilsson and his colleagues implanted tiny electronic tags in the fish. The team used a device that broadcast a radio signal.

Tags that received the signal sent back one of their own that the team could detect. But the researchers noticed other fish that looked like something in between. The main difference was their body shape. Viewed from the side, the bream appears diamond-shaped with a taller middle than its ends. The roach is more streamlined. Roach and bream must have mated to produce those in-between fish, the scientists thought. That would make those fish hybrids.
And so the team began tagging those fish, too. Fish-eating birds called great cormorants live in the same area as the fish. Cormorants gobble fish whole. Afterward, they spit out unwanted parts — including electronic tags. And the hybrids appeared to fare the worst. For their efforts, the team found 9 percent of the bream tags and 14 percent of the roach tags. But perhaps their shape makes them easier targets. Its diamond-like shape makes bream hard to swallow.
Since the hybrid is in between, it may not have either advantage. Marjorie Matocq studied this question in rodents called woodrats. Matocq is a biologist at the University of Nevada, Reno. Matocq found these creatures interesting because they were very common, but scientists knew so little about them. Both live in the western United States.

But desert woodrats are smaller and inhabit dry areas. At a site in California, the two species overlapped. To find out, the researchers brought woodrats to their lab. They set up tubes shaped like a T. The males were restrained with harnesses.
