How much can an invasive species impact an ecosystem? It has the potential to alter entire landscapes, according to a new study.
Birds don't have external ears, so how do they manage to navigate and identify sources of sound without them? That's the question that scientists tackled and now, they've found out how birds are able to localize sounds without external ears.
Climate change may be having a major impact on Amazon vegetation. NASA satellites have shown that a 13-year decline in vegetation in the eastern and southeastern Amazon can be linked to a decade-long rainfall decline in the region.
During the early Cretaceous in North America, a horned dinosaur species stalked the forests. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at this newly discovered species, and have revealed that it's the first definite horned dinosaur species from that period.
Plastic pollution is becoming a serious issue for our world's oceans. Now, scientists have found that nearly 269,000 tons of plastic pollution may be floating in Earth's seas. The findings show exactly how serious the pollution situation has become over time.
Scientists have taken a closer look at ectotherms to see how they might be able to keep pace with climate change.
Animals use a bit of a "foraging' strategy to look for things. Yet did you know that scientists have developed a mathematical theory-based on roundworm foraging-that helps predict how animals decide to switch from localized to very broad searching. The new theory could even help explain certain anim...
It turns out that fungus-growing ants are picking when it comes to cultivating their crops. Scientists have discovered that a lineage of South American ants have an evolutionary history of improvement of their fungal crops.
It turns out that female great tits have an excellent memory. Scientists have discovered that these female birds are much better at remember exactly where food was left in comparison to their male counterparts.
Scientists have discovered a new fossil from Madagascar that reveals fascinating perspectives on the growing diversity of Mesozoic mammals.
Scientists may have uncovered a new and unusual source of greenhouse gases. They've discovered that abandoned wells may contribute substantial amounts of methane to the Earth's atmosphere.
