Researchers are examining proteins that could potentially degrade the toxic chemicals that frequently surround those in war zones.
It turns out that some of the most toxic contaminants from the Deepwater Horizon spill still remain within the Gulf of Mexico.
Not all flowers are created equal and now, it turns out that bumblebees can tell the difference.
Scientists have found that storms have the potential to create Arctic swell due to these newly open spaces and that these huge waves could add another unpredictable element to the region.
Scientists have managed to overturn a 40-year-old theory about the Antarctic glaciation that occurred 34 million years ago. It turns out that this increase in ice was caused by decreased carbon dioxide levels, which could shed a bit more light on current climate shifts.
Birds and salmon brood their eggs for just a few weeks, so it's hard to imagine any animal brooding its eggs for four-and-a-half years. But that's exactly what one deep-sea octopus has done in the depths of Monterey Canyon off of the coast of California.
The world's oceans are seemingly endless as they stretch to extreme depths. And yet rapidly advancing technology is putting these deep seas at risk as they're exploited.
A massive collection of 20-million-year-old amber may have revealed a whole new world to scientists. Researchers have uncovered fresh insights into ancient tropical insects and the Earth that they inhabited.
Scientists have taken a closer look at seed collection to save rare plants and have found that a more careful tailoring of seed collections may be crucial to preserving them for the future.
A continuously changing climate threatens some of the world's most rare and ecologically important agriculture, along with other factors that harm the genetic diversity of plant life.
Researchers have discovered that as global temperature increases, climate extremes are also increasing.
