There's been a startling decline in bird populations across Europe. Scientists have found that over the past 30 years, more "common" birds in this region have experienced sharp drops in population numbers.
Imagine taking waste from crops and, instead of throwing it away, turning it into something useful. Scientists are doing just that with a new technique.
Have you ever heard of a fanged deer? Most people haven't, especially since it hasn't been sighted for more than 60 years. Yet now, scientists have spotted this elusive and unusual deer in Afghanistan.
It turns out that the ozone hole over the Antarctic is persisting through this Halloween. The hole reached its annual peak size on Sept. 11, holding at 9.3 million square miles, an area roughly the size of North America.

It turns out that bats like to hang out with their friends. Scientists have found that despite moving house frequently, bats will choose to roost with the same social network, even when they shift locations.
Scientists have found that the reservoirs of supervolcanos consist of magma that intrudes into the crust in the form of numerous horizontally oriented sheets resting on top of each other like a pile of pancakes.
