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.
Scientists have found that the Susquehanna Flats, a large bed of underwater grasses that virtually disappeared more than 40 years ago, is now one of the biggest and healthiest in the bay. Now, researchers are finding out the story behind this comeback.
Scientists have examined passerine birds, also known as perching birds, and have found that depending on the season, the birds will either migrate more quickly or more slowly.
Edinburgh Zoo officials are concerned for Tian Tian, Britain's only female giant panda, as she has passed her due date and they fear that she might have suffered a miscarriage.
Researchers at at Technische Universität München (TUM) have thoroughly examined the map that these creatures use to guide themselves, along with their adaptation to certain external factors.
It turns out that freshwater may be in short supply for Sierra Nevada in the future. Scientists have found that freshwater runoff in the region could decrease by as much as 26 percent by 2100 due to climate warming on higher slopes.
Want your workers to be more productive? Plants may be the key. Scientists have found that "green" offices with plants actually make staff happier and more productive than offices without any traces of greenery.
Bats zoom through the night sky with the help of echolocation. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at spatial orientation in bats in order to find out exactly how they manage to navigate their dark world.
Scientists have found that if current trends continue, food production alone will reach, if not exceed, global targets for total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 2050.
Scientists have taken a new look at the satellite data from the last 19 years and have found that fresh water from melting glaciers has caused the sea-level around the coast of Antarctica to rise by 2 cm more than the global average of 6 cm.
A recent study conducted by researchers at Inbio-University of Porto found that several genes played distinct roles in the domestication of rabbits. As humans began domesticating animals as early as nine thousand to 15 thousand years ago, the rabbit joined this process much later-with a domesticatio...
