Scorpions may just be master architects. Scientists have found these creatures can create a platform in their burrows where they warm up before going on an evening hunt.
Scientists have now found that the situation with fisheries in the Mediterranean is far from ideal and that it has deteriorated over the past 20 years.
Microplastics are microscopic particles of plastic debris, often found in face wash or simply created from broken down plastics, but these microplastics may just be more of a threat than previously thought.
Some 3D technology could help California condors and other endangered species
Warming temperatures may not impact birds as much as you might think. Instead, precipitation is what might cause problems for species in North America.
As summer continues, rising temperatures can make people feel sweaty, dehydrated and just uncomfortable. However, a recent study published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives found that increasingly high temperatures can increase the number of kidney stones seen in U.S. residents.
What's the worst possible place for an oil spill? It's apparently in the strong currents in the Straits of Mackinac.
Scientists have quantified for the first time the primary causes of the "urban heat island" (UHI) effect, which makes the world's urban areas significantly warmer than the surrounding countryside.
Scientists may have just uncovered another method for silverback gorillas to communicate; they've found that the apes use odor as a way to make their messages clear.
Birds may not have evolved from ground-dwelling dinosaurs. In fact, they may have had nothing to do with these long-extinct animals.
Scientists have managed an extraordinary feat. They've taken the first snapshots of photosynthesis in action as it splits water into protons, electrons and oxygen.
