Scientists have taken a closer look at the humpback whales inhabiting the Arabian Sea and have found that they're the most genetically distinct humpbacks in the world.
Most are aware of the "warming hiatus" that has slowed down warming temperatures of the past decade. Now, though, scientists have taken a closer look at the role that the oceans played in this hiatus.
Scientists have discovered the most ancient pinworm to date. They uncovered an egg much smaller than a common grain of sand in a tiny piece of fossilized dung that shows that this parasite lived 240 million years ago.
It turns out that it takes just a decade for a single emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) to have its maximum warming effect on the Earth. The findings have major implications for future warming as human-created CO2 emissions continue to be released.
Scientists are making efforts for determining the age at sexual maturity for wild stocks of western Atlantic bluefin tuna, which could help officials better manage fish stocks.
Scientists are taking a closer look at island tameness, a phenomenon that Charles Darwin noticed more than 150 years ago.
When you think of New York City, you usually think of large buildings and pavement--not insects. But it turns out that these arthropods play a huge role in the city's ecosystem.
Researchers may have a new timeline when it comes to when ancient, massive mastodons roamed the Earth.
Where is most of Earth's carbon located? It turns out that the majority of it can be found within our planet's inner core. This makes the core into the largest carbon reservoir on our planet, according to the new model created by scientists.
How is global warming linked to carbon emissions? For the first time, scientists have uncovered how global warming is related to the amount of carbon emitted.
Why do males die earlier than females? That's a good question, and it's one that scientists have explored in fruit flies.
