A carnivorous crustacean that roamed Earth's seas about 435 million years ago once grasped its prey with spiny limbs before devouring it.
It turns out that animals may have more complicated "speech" patterns than once thought. Scientists have found that the calls of many animals, from whales to wolves, may contain more language-like structure than previously thought.
It turns out that a bad neighborhood smells pretty bad--especially when it comes to damaged reefs. Scientists have found that Pacific corals and fish avoid settling in bad regions by sniffing out chemical cues.
The Tucson Zoo staff proudly presented its newly-born African elephant calf - first elephant calf ever born at the zoo.
You might say that pacific corals and fish can actually sniff out danger. These sea creatures use their sense of smell to avoid damaged reefs.
Scientists have discovered that it's not bacteria triggering the process of Arctic permafrost's carbon being converted to carbon dioxide--but sunlight.
Scientists have found out that viruses infecting algae may be driving the life-and-death dynamics of algae blooms, which could have major implications for our climate.
It turns out that some cyanobacteria can grow in near darkness, using a previously unknown process for harvesting energy and producing oxygen from sunlight. The new findings could help explain dense blooms that impact Lake Erie and other lakes worldwide.
Scientists have taken a closer look at the drought in the U.S. and have found that growing, broad-scale loss of water is causing the entire western U.S. to rise up like an uncoiled spring.
Scientists have learned a bit more about hummingbirds; they've found out how these creatures developed their taste for sugar.
A new study highlights the environmental source of fungal infection that has been worsening the condition of HIV/AIDS patients residing in Southern California for decades.
Drought continues to spread across California. In fact, about 60 percent of the state is experiencing "exceptional drought," which is the U.S. Drought Monitor's most dire classification. Now, NASA scientists are launching a new satellite that could help farmers and water managers worldwide.
