It turns out that some animals may be able to steal toxins in order to fight off bacteria. Scientists have found that ticks, mites and other animals have "stolen" microbe toxin genes in order to battle otherwise harmful bacteria.
Ecosystems across the globe are in danger--from coral reefs to prairie grasslands. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at these collapses in an effort to prevent them.
When it comes to climate change and global warming, extreme weather can play a major role in proving its existence-or can it? Scientists have found that climate change skeptics are unmoved by droughts, floods, heat waves and other weather events.
Does having a boy or a girl determine how social a mother chimp is? That may just be the case.
A robot is giving scientists a new look on Antarctic sea ice. The underwater robot, called SeaBED, has now helped create the first detailed, high-resolution 3D maps of Antarctic sea ice, revealing accurate ice thickness from areas that were previously too difficult to access.
A team of scientists has managed to reconstruct a detailed "tree of life" for turtles that may tell researchers a bit more about their evolutionary origins.
A team of UK researchers has shed some new light on the climate on the Little Ice Age. They've discovered that the most extreme episodes of the Little Ice Age were global as opposed to just in Europe and North America.
Primates may be key when it comes to revitalizing tropical forests. Scientists have taken a closer look at seed dispersal and have discovered that primates are crucial when it comes to spreading seeds and ensuring that they grow.
It turns out that Archaea may actually be a rich and untapped source of antibacterial drugs. Scientists have taken a closer look at this family of single-celled organisms and have found that they may just hold unknown applications.
Carbon deep beneath Earth's surface may have influenced the history of life on our world. Scientists have taken a closer look at this carbon and have learned a bit more about the vital role that this element played in the planet's formation.
How do hummingbirds manage to zip through the air, hover in place and perform acrobatic aerial feats? That's a good question and now, scientists may have their answer.
