When it comes to genetically modified organisms, testing is crucial. Because they're biological, it's important to contain them both physically and genetically. Now, scientists have created a method to cause genetically modified biological organisms to die if released from the lab into the "wild."
Scientists may have discovered a new species of predator crocodile that actually preceded the dinosaurs. They've uncovered a new species called Nundasuchus, a nine-foot-long carnivorous reptile with steak knifelike teeth.
A warming climate may just change northern forests. Scientists have found that in the coming decades, we'll probably see a very different set of trees due to climbing temperatures.
Extreme weather phenomena called atmospheric rivers may be behind the intense snowstorms that were recorded in 2009 and 2011 in East Antarctica.
Scientists are taking a closer look at silk-weaving ants, and have made a discovery that may change our understanding of how all creatures work together. Researchers have found that the insects could evolve and abandon and then re-evolve the practice of building nests from silk.
It looks as if picky eaters may be going hungry if climate change continues. Scientists have found two species responding very differently to a changing world, and their main difference happens to lie in what they eat.
It's a bit hard to tell exactly what this new species is. Discovered in Cambodia's Cadamom Mountains, the slimy, stringy creature could easily be mistaken for a big worm or even a snake. Well, turns out, it's neither. It's actually a legless amphibian.
Dogs are man's best friend, but have you ever wondered why they cooperate so well? Scientists have examined the origins of this dog-human relationship and have found that it stems from wolf behavior.
There's nothing like the smell after a rainstorm. Now, scientists have uncovered exactly why the outdoors smell so good after rain falls. It turns out that raindrops release aerosols upon impact.
New findings could actually improve practices for current biotech crops. Scientists have discovered that multiple toxins in transgenic crops don't help when it comes to pest control.
Scientists have found that there's another factor to worry about when it comes to meltwater; melting glaciers could be a huge contributor to the release of carbon.
Although cone snails are slow-moving, they're definitely not defenseless. Now, scientists have discovered that some cone snails actually add a weaponized form of insulin to the venomous cocktail that they use to disable fish.
