New findings published in the journal Pediatrics reveal that babies who live at very high elevations may be at an increased risk of SIDS, or sudden infant death syndrome.
Genetic material from fungi collections may have helped researchers better understand the mushroom "tree of life."
Birds are a lot like dinosaurs. Now, scientists have discovered how dinosaur feet, which had back toes that were non-opposable, evolved into the thumb-like opposable toe of birds.
Scientists are learning a bit more about prehistoric climate change with the help of a cave.
Low-ranking, female chimps may bond more strongly with other females than with males.
Bigger brains are only better if they have an evolutionary advantage.
It turns out that a colorful and charismatic reptilian species, which is only found in Madagascar, is actually composed of 11 different species.
It turns out that birds don't like expending unnecessary amounts of effort. Scientists have found that some birds actually detect how good the food inside nuts are by weighing them before cracking them open.
It turns out that ancient birds evolved separate diving techniques. Scientists have taken a closer look at birds from the Cretaceous era and have found that several separate lineages evolved adaptations for diving.
Our connection with dogs may go back as much as 27,000 to 40,000 years. Scientists have uncovered an ancient Taimyr wolf bone that reveals a bit more about our relationship with our canine companions.
Can we limit temperature rise by 2100 to less than 1.5 degrees Celsius?
Last year, researchers examined the genetic diversity of American black bears in a few states. Now, scientists have expanded the study to include black bears throughout North America, which may aid conservation efforts.
