Rising sea levels are a huge issue for coastal communities in the face of climate change. Now, a new study reveals that levels will likely continue to rise in the tropical Pacific Ocean off the coasts of the Philippines and northeastern Australia.
Scientists have successfully recreated the cranial structure of an ancient lizard-like vertebrate that is the earliest example of a reptile.
It turns out that mammoths and mastodons didn't travel nearly as much as scientists once believed. Instead, they much preferred to stay at home in Greater Cincinnati, becoming year-round residents.
The staff of the San Diego Zoo Safari Park is thrilled to announce the birth of a male black rhino, who is the 15th rhino calf born at the Park.
Scientists tracked the movements of seals and noticed that these marine mammals use off shore wind farms as foraging grounds to feast on invertebrates.
Want to avoid contributing to climate change? Then you may want to stop eating meat. Scientists have found that livestock emissions are actually on the rise, and that beef cattle are responsible for far more greenhouse gas emissions than other types of animals.
It turns out that the size and age of a plant may have more to do with their productivity than the environment that they're in. The findings could have implications for carbon capture and storage using plants.
How does life affect our DNA? Understanding exactly how living life and how environmental factors impact the genes we inherit from our parents is an important part of predicting what traits will develop.
Many scientists seem to agree; the world is getting warmer.
Scientists have found a new natural system that may help combat climate change. It turns out that Arctic thermokarst lakes may help thwart global warming by storing more greenhouse gases than they emit into the atmosphere.
Scientists are learning a bit more about the marmoset, the social, furry primate that's known for its rapid reproductive system. They've sequenced the animal's genome, shedding light on primate biology and evolution.
Flocks of starlings can make for an amazing sight as they move in complicated patterns, swirling in a bubble-like formation through the skies. Now, scientists have found out how these birds manage these shifting patterns.
