India's ozone pollution is a growing problem and now, scientists have announced that it's damaged millions of tons of the country's major crops. In fact, it's caused losses of more than a billion dollars and has destroyed enough food to feed tens of millions of people.
Bats are adaptable, and that's no more apparent than when food is scarce. Scientists have found that bat species will change their hunting strategies when they can't find their preferred prey.
Scientists have uncovered a supermassive dinosaur that stretches 85 feet and weighted about 65 tons during its lifetimes, making it the largest land animal for which a body mass can be accurately calculated.
Scientists have discovered two new species that dwell at the bottom of the ocean. They've found sea-dwelling, mushroom-shaped organisms that may just represent an earlier branch on the tree of life.
It turns out that the ancestors of ancient mammals may have been nocturnal. The new research reveals that the transition to nocturnality occurred far earlier than previously expected.
Carbon is soils may be more vulnerable to climate change than first expected. Scientists have found that the response of soil microbial communities to changes in temperature actually increases the risk for more carbon dioxide to be released from the world's soils.
Scientists may have just found a new mountain beneath the waves of the Pacific Ocean. During a seafloor mapping mission, they found a new seamount near the Johnson Atoll rising 1,100 meters from the 5,100-meter-deep seafloor.
Climate change may be impacting some farmers more than others. Scientists have found that small-scale family farmers across Africa are being overwhelmed with the pact and severity of climate change.
Corals may just be more active than scientists once thoughts. Researchers have found that these tiny animals actually engineer their environment in order to sweep water into turbulent patterns that greatly enhance their ability to exchange nutrients and dissolved gases with their environment.
Parrots are some of the smartest birds in the world and now, scientists have found out that they're a bit more intelligent than they expected. They've found that Goffin's cockatoos can learn how to make and use wooden tools from one another.
It turns out the current global extinction rate is far more devastating than first thought. Scientists have found out that species die off as much as 1,000 times more frequently today than they used to. That's 10 times worse than the previous estimate of 100 times.
As our climate changes, mountain species may be facing an uphill climb. Scientists have taken a closer look at mountain ecosystems and have examined the issues threatening wildlife in these systems in order to create better targeted conservation efforts.
