Investigating the case of human nose shape and climate adaptation

The case of human nose shape & climate adaptation

“To address the question of whether local adaptation to climate is responsible for nose shape divergence across populations, we use Qst–Fst comparisons to show that nares width and alar base width are more differentiated across populations than expected under genetic drift alone. To test whether this differentiation is due to climate adaptation, we compared the spatial distribution of these variables with the global distribution of temperature, absolute humidity, and relative humidity. We find that width of the nares is correlated with temperature and absolute humidity, but not with relative humidity. We conclude that some aspects of nose shape may indeed have been driven by local adaptation to climate. However, we think that this is a simplified explanation of a very complex evolutionary history, which possibly also involved other non-neutral forces such as sexual selection.”

2 Ways to Use a Custom Domain with Dropbox – fredericiana

Option 2: CNAME

There’s another option that doesn’t require any changes to your server. However, you’ll need access to your provider’s DNS settings.

If you do have such access, you can create a DNS CNAME record. A CNAME record is essentially a domain alias, forwarding one domain name to another.

It’s pretty simple:

  1. Access your provider’s DNS settings menu. Providers should have a help file about how to do this, like this one from Hover.
  2. Add a new DNS record, type: CNAME.
  3. Choose a domain name (such as i.example.com) and point it to dl.dropbox.com.

Once the changes have been picked up by the DNS system, you’re done! Your screenshots will be available under a URL like: http://i.example.com/u/XYZ/Screenshots/abcd.png.

While certainly elegant, one (big) caveat of this solution is that the resulting URLs still contain the portion /u/XYZ/Screenshots. Because the CNAME record works purely on a domain level, there is no way for us to hide this portion of the URLs with this method.
