Each summer, Greenland's ice sheet begins to melt. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at these lakes to see if they could worsen the ice sheet's contribution to sea level rise.
The box jellyfish is one of the most poisonous species in the world and now, researchers have found a little bit more about how they hunt.
Scientists may have discovered why massive glacial lakes atop the Greenland Ice Sheet drain suddenly. They've found a surprising mechanism that triggers cracks where the water drains.
How does elevation impact evolution? That's exactly what scientists have asked themselves as they've examined the mammals of the ancient past.
It turns out that tiny birds may be able to warn others of an approaching predator in order to avoid being preyed upon themselves.
Scientists may have discovered the deepest high-temperature hydrothermal vents in the Pacific.
Chimps, apparently, would cook if given the choice. Scientists have conducted a series of experiments that reveal that not only do chimps have a taste for cooked food, but also have the cognitive abilities to actually cook.
Researchers may have uncovered two new species of sexually suicidal carnivorous marsupials. They've found rodent-like creatures that engage in a frenzy of sex that eventually kills them.
Seals are helping scientists plumb the depths of the world's remotest oceans. After hooking up seals with sensors, researchers have collected data that builds a detailed picture of areas that are currently difficult for humans to visit.
Wolf spiders, which are known for their unusual courtship behaviors, may serenade potential mates in order to woo them. However, new research shows that this only works if females can feel these vibrations.
It turns out that the redwoods of Muir Woods may not be as old as researchers once thought. Scientists have dated the trees and found that the tallest trees may just be 777 years old.
