Abstract/Summary

The Falkland Islands hit the headlines at the beginning of November 2009, and for a rather unusual reason. The DNA of the warrah, the extinct Falklands wolf, had been sequenced and the results published in the scientific journal Current Biology. The story clearly appealed to the UK Media and most newspapers ran it; typical was ‘How scientists cracked puzzle of the Falklands wolf’ in The Independent for November 2nd.
