How do chimps acquire sufficient food during lean times? Scientists may have found out just that. It turns out that chimps make their sleeping nests en route to breakfast sites containing fruits that are more competed for by other daytime fruit-eaters than other fruits.
The 2010 Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico was one of the worst spills in history. Yet there's an unsolved puzzle when it comes to this spill: the location of the two million barrels of submerged oil thought to be trapped in the deep ocean.
Scientists have taken a closer look at the circulation of the ocean and have examined what role it plays in regulating Earth's climate.
Scientists working on islands have found that native lizard species evolved in as little as 15 years as a result of pressure from an invading lizard species.
When it comes to tropical deforestation, global consumption may be largely to blame. Scientists have found that more than a third of recent deforestation can be tied to the production of beef, soy, palm oil and timber.
Scientists have spent six years testing coatings to control the reattachment of invasive mussels to water and power facilities.
When did we first begin being able to drink milk? That's a good question--and you may be surprised by the answer. Scientists have found that ancient Europeans remained intolerant to lactose for 5,000 years after they adopted agricultural practices.
Scientists may have managed to solve the "Karakoram anomaly," a phenomenon that has long puzzled climate change researchers.
Wild chimps may be developing innovative strategies in order to cope with living in disturbed habitat.
Jumping spiders are known for their ability to spring high into the air. Now, scientists have managed to make recordings of neurons associated with the visual perception of a jumping spider.
Scientists have long wondered how male moths locate females flying hundreds of meters away. Now, they may have their answer. It all has to do with air flow.
