Thank scientists' clever vernacular for picking a famous English musician to name the fossil of an extinct pig-like swamp creature.
Scientists have challenged a commonly held view that explains how so many species of birds came to inhabit the Neotropics, revealing a bit more about the movements of birds.
It turns out that the coast of Istanbul may be in for a major earthquake in the future.
Mammals may have appeared on our planet far earlier than thought. Paleontologists have uncovered three new small squirrel-like species that lived about 208 million years ago during the late Triassic.
A new animal from the depths of a prehistoric swamp has been named after Mick Jagger due to a trait that they both share in common: their supersized lips.
Sloths may be slow but in the race of evolution, they're some of the fastest mammals out there.
Earth's ozone layer may be on the path to recovery. Scientists have found that the concentrated, international action against ozone depleting substances has put our ozone back on the track to regeneration.
Scientists have taken a closer look at the social relationships between baboons and have found that social bonds actually made the difference when it came to survival.
A certain extinct dolphin may actually tell researchers a bit more about unusual river dolphins. Scientists have found a new fossil dolphin species that may shed some light on the relationships between these freshwater dolphins.
When it comes to whales and dolphins, certain bones seem to serve little to no purpose. Their hip bones, in particular, look as if they're just evolutionary remnants from when they used to walk on land. Now, though, scientists have found that these pelvic bones may be crucial when it comes to sex.
It turns out that carbon dioxide levels are higher than ever. Scientists have announced that the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere reached a new record high in 2013, propelled by a surge in carbon dioxide.
Scientists have announced that it may threaten nearly half of the bird species in the continental United States and Canada; that's a staggering 314 North American bird species that include the bald eagle, common loon, Baltimore oriole and the brown pelican.
