How to use salamander in a sentence?

  1. Virginia Byers Kraus:

    We believe that an understanding of this' salamander-like' regenerative capacity in humans, and the critically missing components of this regulatory circuit, could provide the foundation for new approaches to repair joint tissues and possibly whole human limbs.

  2. Professor Auke Ijspeert:

    It's a key animal from an evolutionary point of view, it's older than crocodiles and dinosaurs; it's an amphibian. So if you look at the modern salamander, its morphology and body shape is very close to the fossils of the first terrestrial vertebrates. So by studying the modern salamander we have a time window to the ancestors of all terrestrial vertebrates, including humans.

  3. Samuel Turvey:

    Our analysis reveals that Chinese giant salamander species diverged between 3.1 and 2.4 million years ago, these dates correspond to a period of mountain formation in South China as the Tibetan Plateau rose rapidly, which could have isolated giant salamander populations and led to the evolution of distinct species in different landscapes.

  4. Samuel Turvey:

    The decline in wild Chinese giant salamander numbers has been catastrophic, mainly due to recent overexploitation for food, we hope that this new understanding of their species diversity has arrived in time to support their successful conservation, but urgent measures are required to protect any viable giant salamander populations that might remain.

  5. Samuel Turvey:

    Conservation plans must now be updated to recognize the existence of multiple giant salamander species, and movement of these animals should be prohibited to reduce the risk of disease transfer, competition and genetic hybridization.
