Chimps and bonobos are closely related, but one may be better at using tools than the other. Scientists have found that chimpanzees innately know how to use tools while bonobos don't.
Ocean acidification is going to be a huge issue in the future. Scientists have found that surface waters of the Chukchi and Beaufort seas in the Arctic could reach levels of acidity that threaten the ability of animals to build and maintain their shells by 2030.
Injured jellyfish have a remarkable way to self-repair themselves. Scientists have taken a closer look at jellyfish and have found that they actually reorganize their existing anatomy in order to regain symmetry after being injured.
The northeast United States may be getting a bit warmer.
Dinosaurs couldn't stand living near the tropics, and now scientists may know why. Researchers may have discovered why dinosaurs remained inexplicably rare near the equator for more than 30 million years.
New findings published in the latest edition of Social Science Quarterly reveal that where individuals live can ultimately influence their risk of committing suicide. For the study, researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder examined how social climate can indeed be a factor in such a risk.
Scientists have discovered that hawkmoths have the unique ability to slow down their brains when hovering in order to see better in the dark and to better target the swaying flowers that they look to for food.
The Earth may be in for a scorcher in the future. The International Energy Agency (IEA) announced that temperatures could adjust by as much as 4.3 degrees Celsius by the end of this century.
Evolution may be to blame for a certain agricultural pest that began plaguing apple growers in the 1850s.
Some species just can't take the heat, and underground ants are one of them. Scientists have found that certain army ant species that live in tropical forests are ill-suited to high temperatures.
There are new calculations that may improve our ability to "see" CO2 from space.
We may be entering the "golden age" of animal tracking. Animals wearing new tagging and tracking devices are giving scientists a real-time look at their behavior and the environmental health of the planet.
