WASHINGTON Cheap Nike Huarache , July 3 (Xinhua) -- Most of the frogs alive today may owe a "big thank you" to the mass extinction that wiped out dinosaurs 66 million years ago.

A new study by Chinese and American biologists showed that 88 percent of today's frog species have descended from just three lineages that survived the calamity, likely caused by an asteroid or comet striking the Earth.

"Frogs have been around for well over 200 million years, but this study shows it wasn't until the extinction of the dinosaurs that we had this burst of frog diversity that resulted in the vast majority of frogs we see today," said study co-author David Blackburn, associate curator of amphibians and reptiles at the Florida Museum of Natural History on the University of Florida campus.

This finding, published Monday in the U.S. journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Nike Huarache All Red , "was totally unexpected," Blackburn said.

The swift rise of frogs after the massive die-off was likely due to the fact that so many environmental niches were available after the animals occupying them disappeared.

"We think there were massive alterations of ecosystems at that time, including widespread destruction of forests," Blackburn said. "But frogs are pretty good at eking out a living in microhabitats, and as forests and tropical ecosystems rebounded, they quickly took advantage of those new ecological opportunities."

Today Nike Huarache All Black , there are more than 6,700 known frog species, representing 55 families and living in a wide range of habitats from trees to aquatic environments to underground.

For this study, Blackburn joined researchers from Sun Yat-Sen University in China, the University of Texas at Austin and the University of California, Berkeley in the U.S. to tackle the mystery of frog evolution with a dataset seven times larger than that used in prior research.

The team sampled a core set of 95 nuclear genes from 156 frog species Nike Huarache All White , combining this with previously published genetic data on an additional 145 species to build the most complete frog family tree yet.

When the analyses pointed to a simultaneous evolution of the three major frog clades -- Hyloidea, Microhylidae and Natatanura -- the researchers initially eyed the finding with skepticism, said Peng Zhang, a corresponding study author and professor in the department of biochemistry and molecular biology at Sun Yat-Sen University.

"Nobody had seen this result before," he said. "We redid the analysis using different parameter settings, but the result remained the same. I realized the signal was very strong in our data. What I saw could not be a false thing."

While the extinction event opened new opportunities for frogs Nike Huarache Gold , notably leading to the evolution of tree frogs worldwide, it snuffed out many frog lineages, particularly in North America, the team said.

The study also indicated that global frog distribution tracks the breakup of the supercontinents, beginning with Pangea about 200 million years ago and then, Gondwana Nike Huarache Pink , which split into South America and Africa.

The data suggested frogs likely used Antarctica, not yet encased in ice sheets, as a stepping stone from South America to Australia.

While the survival and subsequent comeback of frogs testifies to their resilience, Zhang said, their current vulnerability to disease, habitat loss and degradation is cause for concern.

"I think the most exciting thing about our study is that we show that frogs are such a strong animal group. They survived from the mass extinction that completely erased dinosaurs and boomed back quickly Nike Huarache Red ," he said.

"However, frog species are declining nowadays because humans are destroying their habitats. Does that mean humans are making a huge extinction event even stronger than this one? We need to think about it."

WUXI, East China Nike Huarache White , April 16 (Xinhua) -- Defending champion Fan Zhendong terminated Jeong Sang Eun's giant killing run here on Sunday, beating the Chinese-born Korean 3-0 for the men's singles glory of the Asian table tennis championships.

The world No. 2, just 20 years old, denied a late comeback from the 27-year-old Jeong and rounded up the final 11-5, 11-5, 11-8 Nike Huarache Black , though the latter played some real brilliant table tennis with powerful forehand in the third set.

It has been the eighth trophy in a row of men's singles for the all-time leading China, who has pocketed 20 titles of the event out of 23 editions of the continental tourney.

Fan came to the last hurdle of his defending campaign after racing against the loud crowd to beat local favorite Zhang Jike 3-1, while Jeong beat off another dark horse Koki Niwa 3-2 to reach final.

In the previous round of the men's singles play, the Korean ousted top seed Ma Long in the round of 32 and the Japanese Niwa showed the door out for China's best pen-hold player Xu Xin in the quarterfinals.
