Researchers have made a key discovery in helping to understand the longevity and endurance of Roman architectural concrete that was made during international and interdisciplinary collaboration with help from beams of X-rays at the Advanced Light Source (ALS) of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)'s...
Beavers may have once been on the verge of extinction, but they're making a comeback--and causing some unseen side effects.
The way you play may say a bit about you. Scientists have found that the way in which toys are handled and combined with one another during object play can tell them a lot about the cognitive underpinnings of the species playing with them.
Scientists have found that wolves are actually able to discriminate between different quantities better than their domesticated cousins.
When it comes to cooling off the planet, clouds have the potential to play a huge role. Now, scientists have identified the most energy-efficient way to make clouds more reflective to the sun, which could help combat climate change.
Most people are aware that the Greenland Ice Sheet is melting. Yet exactly how fast that melting is occurring has been up for debate.
Most people know that the horses of today are different from the wild horses that they once were. Now, though, researchers are learning a bit more about how horses first became domesticated.
Climate change may actually impact the lighting of major cities. Although most people in hurricane-prone areas are familiar with power outages caused by these storms, scientists have found that changing conditions may also impact other major metro areas.
It turns out that Greenland's ice loss and its impact on rising sea levels may have been greatly underestimated. Scientists have found that migrating, supraglacial lakes could trigger future ice loss which, in turn, may add to rising sea levels.
Did you know that cows speak? Scientists have been eavesdropping on "conversations" between calves and their mothers, using detailed acoustic analysis to figure out exactly how cows manage to communicate.
Scientists have now found that microbes living within oil reserves are actually social creatures that have exchanged genes for eons.
