Drones can be a huge boon to wildlife biologists. Now, researchers have found that these robots may actually stress out the wildlife they're observing.
Fruit flies are very smart insects. When they're attacked by parasites or bacteria, they produce offspring with greater genetic variability-increasing chances of survival when faced with dangerous pathogens in the future ahead. The findings suggest that parents may purposefully alter the genotypes o...
Researchers at the University of New South Wales, Australia believe that they could potentially improve biodiversity by limiting the spread of red foxes and feral cats in habitats where dingoes have been culled.
Scientists have found that marine organisms living in acidified waters have the tendency to nurture their offspring to a greater extent than those in more regular conditions.
Climate change impacts species all across the planet. Now, though, researchers have found that it may be causing the wild boar population in Europe to positively explode, causing issues for agriculture and other species.
For the first time ever, researchers have sequenced the genome of the octopus, learning a bit more about this strange, underwater creature.
A certain octopus may have a bit of a strange romantic life. Not only is the creature gregarious, but it seems almost polite with its prey.
New findings published in the open-access journal PLOS ONE supports previous research that the Cape Parrot should be elevated to the species level, according to a new genetic analysis.
New findings published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) reveal that cats, at one time, may have had the upper hand over dogs.
It turns out that melting glaciers are having more of an impact on the Antarctic than previously thought. Researchers have found that the nutrient-rich meltwater is actually nourishing the ocean food chain, creating feeding hotspots.
So much of a child's future is in the hands of various environmental factors as he or she develops. Yet some things, too, are already set in stone.
