Most people know that the horses of today are different from the wild horses that they once were. Now, though, researchers are learning a bit more about how horses first became domesticated.
Climate change may actually impact the lighting of major cities. Although most people in hurricane-prone areas are familiar with power outages caused by these storms, scientists have found that changing conditions may also impact other major metro areas.
It turns out that Greenland's ice loss and its impact on rising sea levels may have been greatly underestimated. Scientists have found that migrating, supraglacial lakes could trigger future ice loss which, in turn, may add to rising sea levels.
Did you know that cows speak? Scientists have been eavesdropping on "conversations" between calves and their mothers, using detailed acoustic analysis to figure out exactly how cows manage to communicate.
Scientists have now found that microbes living within oil reserves are actually social creatures that have exchanged genes for eons.
When it comes to understanding the relationship between global warming and extreme weather, it's important to ask exactly the right questions.
Some bird eggs are colored in vibrant hues, ranging from emerald green to blue to yellow. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at the pigments within these shells and have found out a bit more about shell coatings.
It turns out that the genomic "fossils" of past viral infections may be far more common in mammals than in birds. In fact, scientists found that they're 13 times less common in birds than in mammals.
It turns out that willow trees may hold the key for cleaning up soils.
Which birds are most like their ancient ancestors, the dinosaurs? That's a question that scientists have finally answered.
It turns out that natural toxins in nectar and pollen can poison insects, which could have some implications for bees. Scientists have discovered that these toxins can affect insect memory, behavior, and reproductive success.
Scientists have known for years that the singing behavior of birds is similar to speech in humans. Now, though, researchers have conducted a genetics study to find out how these features are related, which could shed a bit more light on the origins of human speech.
