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.
What might cause global warming to increase in the next few decades? It could be water vapor.
Scientists have identified 101 distinct geysers erupting on Saturn's icy moon Enceladus.
A team of scientists on the International Space Station have made a surprising discovery. They've found a new type of cool burning flames that could lead to cleaner and more efficient engines for cars in the future.
Scientists have created a new tool that could potentially help create "fuel" crops for clean, renewable bioenergy--an assay that allows scientists to identify and characterize the function of nucleotide sugar transporters.
Scientists have taken a look at ice cores in the South Pole and have found that lead pollution may have actually arrived in these southern reaches before the first explorers did.
Scientists have identified areas of the Earth that are high priorities for conservation in the face of climate change, and have discovered that Europe may be particularly vulnerable.
Scientists found that the planet faces a small but substantially increased risk over the next two decades of a major slowdown in the growth of global crop yields due to changing weather patterns.
How important are trees? They apparently save lives. Scientists found that trees save more than 850 human lives per year and prevent about 670,000 incidents of acute respiratory systems.
