Bioengineering and The Discovery of New Organisms

Vital for our studies on Mendelian Bioengineering, the Intelligent Design to Generate new Biodiversity, are the reports of the discoveries of new organisms. Without being exhaustive, we present here a list of links with such a recent discoveries in the pursuit of our ID research projects:

The Macro World:

Gaubert, P. (2003) Description of a new species of genet (Carnivora; Viverridae; genus Genetta) and taxonomic revision of forest forms related to the Large-spotted genet complex. Mammalia 67 (1): 85-108.
“…the clarification of their taxonomic status requires further investigations.”

New Areas Of High Biological Diversity Discovered (New Zealand, Southeast Australia and Tasmania)

Ivory-billed woodpecker not extinct. Scientists report sightings of bird in Arkansas. See also: Education: Ivory-billed Woodpecker, and also see: When Extinct Isn't
From the last article: "...the ivory-billed woodpecker will not be the only U.S. species recently returned from oblivion. In May, just a few days after the ivory-bill news, the Nature Conservancy announced the discovery in Alabama of three snails listed as extinct. A few weeks later, botanists at the University of California at Berkeley reported finding the Mount Diablo buckwheat, a tiny pink-flowered plant that had not been seen since 1936. At least 24 species of other presumed or possibly extinct plants, insects and other organisms have been found during natural heritage surveys in North America since 1974, according to Mark Schaefer, president of NatureServe, a nonprofit conservation group based in Arlington, Va. With so many "extinct" creatures reappearing, it is reasonable to wonder if the word has lost its meaning."

Not Just a Nice Idea, Preserving Biodiversity Is a Necessity.

Intelligent Design offers the opportunity to preserve organisms by producing new biodiversity according to the plan of genetic compatibility, which is the interbreeding of compatible organisms (inter-fertile varieties currently misclassified as "different species" by the apostles of evolution and of "speciation"). By stressing the emphasis in the new organisms discovered, Intelligent Design is in sharp contrast with the yellow-tinted "competition and extinction - endangered and struggling for the survival of the fittest" colors of the current biology dominated by evolution and by neoDarwinism.
