The Amazon rainforest may be in trouble. Scientists have created future simulations of the climate in these biodiverse forests and have found that not only will there be a longer dry season, but this dry season will lead to more droughts and fires.
A team of Canadian researchers discovered four new species of killer sponges that dwell in the lightless deep seafloor.
A new study strongly claims that camels are not to be blamed for warming of Earth as these camelids release less methane, a potent greenhouse gas, when compared to ruminants like cattle, sheep and goats.
A recent analysis of rare leafcutter-bee fossils excavated from the Rancho La Brea Tar Pits in Southern California provides a glimpse into the environment of the Ice Age.
Don't be fooled. Big things really do come in small packages, especially when it comes to the parasitic worm Amakusaplana acroporae.
The countries and cities who are at the front lines of climate change are looking to adapt in the immediate future, and the United Nations believe that those at risk hold the answers for others, especially developing countries across the world.
Millions of years ago, a massive asteroid slammed into Earth, setting off a chain of events that changed life forever. Now, scientists have reconstructed that impact, revealing how catastrophic event this truly was.
Fruit flies can zip around a room, zooming past obstacles as they slow down and speed up. Now, though, researchers have uncovered the mechanism for how fruit flies use their "cruise control" in flight.
Using high speed cameras, scientists at an international university found that fruit flies successfully evade danger by using fighter jet tactics of quick banked turns.
Modern-day daddy longlegs are certainly terrifying, dwindling on eight willowy gams. Yet a 305-million-year-old fossil shows that their ancestors may have been more eye-catching.
A tiny crustacean makes its debut as one of the world's smallest crayfish species.
