Using a high-resolution model to describe ocean circulation during the last ice age about 21,000 years ago, scientists have found that icebergs from the North American ice sheet floated as far south as Florida.
Sidewinder snakes have the amazing ability to quickly climb sandy slopes in the desert. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at this ability and have created a snake-like robot to test ideas spawned by observing real snakes.
Researchers have estimated that by 2050 a large number of fish will vanish from the tropics due to the changing temperatures.
Humans are not the only ones who enjoy beer. Recent findings published in the journal Cell Reports reveal that flies could actually be attracted to this beverage as well.
Scientists have known for years that sulfuric acid contributes to the formation of tiny aerosol particles, which aid in cloud formation. Now, scientists have discovered that dimethylamine can also tremendously enhance new particle formation.
Scientists have found that the largest migration on Earth actually shapes the chemistry of our oceans--by the animals' pee.
Researchers at the University of Washington found that the release of ammonia by small migrating animals dramatically affects the chemistry of ocean.
A recent review of leafhoppers from various museum collections across the world led to the identification of three novel species of leafhoppers belonging to genus Futasujinus.
Scientists have taken a closer look at penguins and have found that a bird's individual personality may be among the factors that could improve its chances at successfully coping with environmental stressors.
Climate change could alter the ecological impacts of the seasons, which could mean some big changes when it comes to our environment and agriculture.
Evolution is constantly churning out new traits with novel functions. But what causes this process to occur in the first place? By studying the color markings of cichlid fish, scientists have figure out what triggers these evolutionary innovations.
