    Links zwei offene Blattporen auf der Oberfläche eines Farnblattes, umgeben von zwei nierenförmigen Schließzellen. Rechts wichtige Momente in der Evolution der Stomata. Diese haben sich schon in einer frühen Landpflanze entwickelt, von der alle heutigen Arten abstammen, und gingen wahrscheinlich in Lebermoosen erneut verloren. Einige Gene, die die Bewegung der Stomata in Blütenpflanzen kontrollieren, sind vermutlich erst in Samenpflanzen aus alten Genfamilien entstanden, die bereits in Algen vorkamen. Signalgene mit spezifischen Rollen in Schließzellen traten wahrscheinlich erst nach der Abspaltung der Moose von einem gemeinsamen Vorfahren auf.

    Die meisten Betrachter glauben, dass die Person etwa an Position A zeigt. Tatsächlich wurde sie instruiert, an Position B zu zeigen. Die Linien verdeutlichen wie Zeigegesten interpretiert und produziert werden.

    Everyone probably knows the following situation: You point your finger at something to show it to someone else. But the other person does not get it, sees neither the hedgehog by the road, nor a certain constellation in the sky. Psychologists from the University of Würzburg have found out why pointing gestures are frequently misunderstood.
