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.
Did all dinosaurs have feathers? Researchers have found the first ever example of a plant-eating dinosaur with features and scales.
Mothers who give birth in green spaces are more likely to have healthier, higher-weight babies, than those who give birth in more urban environments.
A mass of wealth can be found in the depths of the ocean and now, scientists are drawing attention to the services provided by the deep sea as it's being impacted by climate change.
Evolution is a powerful force, and could allow species to adapt to changing conditions that are brought on by climate change. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at some tropical species and have found that rainforest-restricted flies may actually be able to avoid extinction by evolving.
The Deepwater Horizon oil spill caused devastation in its wake. Even today, ecosystems are still feeling its impacts. Now, scientists have found two additional coral communities showing signs of damage from the oil spill.
The human population is spreading out across the globe. Unfortunately, this spread is destroying habitat and ecosystems for other animals. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at some of the smaller denizens on our planet: invertebrates.
