Grassland prairies may be under a new and unusual threat. It's not from animals; it's not from humans. Instead, the threat comes from trees and shrubs.
Scientists have taken a look at the most comprehensive family tree of meat-eating dinosaurs to date. Now, they're using this family tree to uncover key details of how birds evolved from these prehistoric terrors, examining feathers, wings and wishbones.
Global sea level rise isn't just something we're dealing with in the present day. Scientists have now found at the end of the last five ice-ages, global sea-levels rose at rates of up to 5.5 meters per century.
The bees you see buzzing from flower to flower may not just be pollinators; they may also be doctors. Scientists have introduced a new method to turn bees into tiny insect medics in order to deliver disease control to cherry blossoms and prevent brown rot in cherries.
When did multicellular life first evolve? That's a good question, and its own which geobiologists may now have an answer to.
Scientists have discovered that insects' fear of their predators ultimately limits how fast they grow, which could be an important factor to take into account when monitoring how insects might react to climate change.
How successful will a monkey be at producing offspring? It turns out that its displayed skin color may be a key indicator. Scientists have taken a look at rhesus macaques and have found that how successfully they breed depends on how they look.
Scientists have found that recreational activity is a major pollutant on the Canadian coast of the Pacific Ocean, reveal the importance of monitoring marina discharges.
Scientists have taken a closer look at the behavioral and social impacts that chimps experience when raised in captivity.
You may think that dying brain cells are a bad thing but for birds, it's a natural part of their yearly cycle. Now, scientists have found out how neuron growth in these birds begins anew each spring.
Scientists are continuing to search for new materials to create biofuels to power vehicles and other machines. Now, though, scientists have taken a look at the human gut and have found that microbes there can digest fiber, breaking it down into simple sugars.
It turns out that food collected around the site of the Fukushima nuclear meltdown may be negatively impacting butterflies. Scientists have found that pale blue grass butterflies that were fed from regions around the disaster site had higher rates of death and disease.
