Researchers at at Technische Universität München (TUM) have thoroughly examined the map that these creatures use to guide themselves, along with their adaptation to certain external factors.
It turns out that freshwater may be in short supply for Sierra Nevada in the future. Scientists have found that freshwater runoff in the region could decrease by as much as 26 percent by 2100 due to climate warming on higher slopes.
Want your workers to be more productive? Plants may be the key. Scientists have found that "green" offices with plants actually make staff happier and more productive than offices without any traces of greenery.
Bats zoom through the night sky with the help of echolocation. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at spatial orientation in bats in order to find out exactly how they manage to navigate their dark world.
Scientists have found that if current trends continue, food production alone will reach, if not exceed, global targets for total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 2050.
Scientists have taken a new look at the satellite data from the last 19 years and have found that fresh water from melting glaciers has caused the sea-level around the coast of Antarctica to rise by 2 cm more than the global average of 6 cm.
A recent study conducted by researchers at Inbio-University of Porto found that several genes played distinct roles in the domestication of rabbits. As humans began domesticating animals as early as nine thousand to 15 thousand years ago, the rabbit joined this process much later-with a domesticatio...
The Tulsa Zoo is delighted to announce the arrival of three Malayan tiger cubs, that were born early this month.
Scientists have found that some species of marine phytoplankton can grow without consuming vitamin B1 (thiamine), which contradicts the common view that many eukaryotic microbes depend on scarce supplies of this vitamin in the ocean to survive.
You'd think that a warming world would cause milder winters. But that isn't the case, according to new research. Scientists have found that even though average snowfall will decrease, extreme snowfall events will likely still occur in the Northern Hemisphere.
Believe it or not, right now, there might be some mites making a home on your face.
As our climate changes and sea levels rise, coastal regions are at risk of erosion. Now, scientists have announced that coastal regions need to tackle the more immediate threats of human-led and non-climatic changes.
