A cocktail of common chemicals may trigger cancer. Scientists have taken a look at 85 chemicals not considered carcinogenic to humans and found that 50 supported key cancer-related mechanisms at exposures found in the environment today.
Scientists may understand the paths that dinosaurs took a bit better. Researchers have reconstructed the footprints of carnivorous dinosaurs and have discovered what route that they took 154 million years ago.
Today, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a report quantifying the vast economic, health, and environmental benefits that reducing global carbon pollution will have on the United States.
Could monkeys have "pet" wolves? Scientists have taken a closer look at the relationship between Ethiopian wolves and gelada monkeys and have found that even though the monkeys are prey, the wolves don't attack them.
It turns out that at least one early European had a close Neanderthal ancestor.
For the first time ever, scientists have created a visual atlas and dictionary of terms of the many strange features on the fearsome-looking jaws of camel spiders.
Scientists may have found a link between two deadly fungal infections. Researchers have taken a closer look at snake fungal disease and have found that it's eerily similar to the fungus that causes white-nose syndrome in bats.
It turns out the deep-sea sharks may be positively buoyant, a fact which surprised scientists who believed that these animals were neutrally buoyant, which would make it easier for them to swim.
Barn owls may be in danger. Scientists have discovered that barn owls may be threatened by Africanized bees in south Florida.
A sixth mass extinction may have begun. Scientists have used highly conservative estimates to prove that species are disappearing faster than at any time since the time of the dinosaurs.
New findings published in Science Advances discuss a way to guide electric discharges and even possibly steer them around obstacles through the use of lasers.
New findings published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B reveal that brain regions for central cognitive processing in social insect species actually shrank over time--the opposite pattern seen with sociality in other vertebrate animals, including mammals, birds and fish.
