A new genomic study may tell scientists a bit more about the evolution of insect society in bees.
Scientists may have discovered a new potential trigger for volcanic eruptions. They've found that a pressure drop associated with a structure known as a sill may actually trigger a volcanic eruption.
Scientists have discovered the first warm-blooded fish in the world: the opah, or moonfish.
How do ants increase their chances of survival? They use their jaws. Scientists have discovered that some species of trap-jaw ants use their spring-loaded mandibles to hurl themselves out of harm's way.
What's causing the thinning of one of Antarctica's largest ice shelves? Researchers have taken a closer look at the Larsen C Ice Shelf to learn a bit more about this thinning ice.
What kills galaxies and causes them to fade away over time? That's a good question and now, a new study reveals the method if not the murderer: strangulation.
Beekeepers across the United States may have lost more than 40 percent of their honey bee colonies between April 2014 and April 2015.
Female lemurs may behave a bit more like guys, thanks to some testosterone. While males rule in most of the animal world, lemurs have a very different social pecking order--and scientists may have found out why.
It turns out that some animals may create their own sunscreen. Scientists have found that fish produce their own protection from the sun and have now copied the method for potential use in humans.
About 55 million years ago, an abrupt global warming even triggered a highly corrosive deep water current. Now, scientists are taking a closer look in order to see what implications this may have for climate warming.
Rats may be more compassionate toward their fellows than you might have thought. Scientists have discovered that a rat will stick out a paw for another rat to hold onto if it's drowning. Not only that, but this is especially true for rats that have previously had a near-drowning experience.
A massive asteroid slammed into Earth about 66 million years ago, causing the mass extinction of the dinosaurs. But dinosaurs weren't the only ones to disappear. Scientists have found that mollusks may have also vanished after this catastrophic event.
