  • The predicted outcomes then guide behavior.26 Antonio Damasio, a neurologist at the University of Southern California, tells us that fruit-eating monkeys who must predict where they can find edible fruit have larger neocortices—and thus more thinking capacity—than their leaf-eating relatives, who have no need to figure out where to find food and predict its location.27

    The Time Paradox

  • Understanding the drivers of the high diversity in tropical forests has been a major question since Darwin and Wallace visited tropical forests and even before, Smithsonian co-author Scott Miller writes, We found that higher tropical tree diversity explains why there are more leaf-eating insects in tropical than in temperate forests.

    The Time Paradox

  • Scientists once universally thought the more primitive horses, which lived from about 55 million to 20 million years ago, were primarily leaf-eating browsers, only becoming grass eaters as the prairie grasslands began to spread rapidly across North America during the Miocene Epoch about 20 million years ago, MacFadden said.
