Sheepdogs know a thing or two about taking charge and leading the pack. Now, recent findings show that all these guys do is follow two simple rules.
Scientists have discovered a fossil in Newfoundland that may provide the earliest evidence of an animal with muscles.
It turns out that the tectonic plate located in the Pacific that dominates the "Ring of Fire" is not nearly as rigid as previously thought.
Scientists have examined century-old museum specimens in order to learn how global climate change will affect a common insect pest that can weaken and kill trees.
It turns out that our planet may not be as green as it could be. Scientists have found that Earth can produce much more land-plant biomass than previously thought.
Trash may not just be causing problems for our environment; it could also be affecting our air. Researchers have found that unregulated trash burning across the globe is pumping far more pollution into the atmosphere than shown on official records.
The canola plant is used widely in both farming and industry. Now, scientists have managed to sequence this plant's genome, which may pave the way for improved versions of this plant in the future.
A parasitic "zombie" fungus may only be able to target one specific type of ant. Scientists have found that this fungus, which can manipulate the behavior of ants, only emits its cocktail of behavior-controlling chemicals when encountering the brain of its natural target host.
It turns out that natural methane seepage from the seafloor may be more widespread on the Atlantic margin than previously thought.
Scientists are learning a bit more about honeybees. They've conducted the first ever global analysis of genome variation in these insects, revealing a bit more about their genetic diversity and evolutionary history.
Scientists have found that fish which essentially "sprint" to their spawning groups through fast-moving waters are less likely to survive than those who take it a bit easier.
