In 2011, the Fukushima Daiichi power plant in Japan experienced a disastrous meltdown. Now, scientists have revealed the serious biological effects of the Fukushima radiation on organisms that range from plants to butterflies to birds.
It turns out that turtles may be more invested in parental care than previously realized. Scientists have found that Giant South American river turtles use sound in order to stick together and care for their young, using several different kinds of vocal communication.
Did you know that just like humans, whales and dolphins like to squeal with happiness?
Can plants talk? They can certainly communicate. A scientist has discovered a potentially new form of plant communication that allows them to share an extraordinary amount of genetic information with one another.
As our world warms, glaciers continue to retreat. Now, though, researchers have found that this retreat can mostly be blamed on human contribution rather than natural climate fluctuations.
Invasive lionfish are quickly spreading across the Caribbean and the Atlantic, hunting prey and disrupting ecosystems. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at the behavior of this species and have found that it's not just a predator, but more like the "terminator" in the popular movie.
Could we genetically enhance produce without introducing foreign genes? That might just be the future for our crops. Recent advances now allow the precise editing of genomes and raise the possibility of genetically improving crops.
A massive fish may have become extinct in some areas of the Amazon Basin. Scientists have found that the arapaima fish, which once dominated Amazon fisheries, is slowly being harvested to extinction.
Scientists have uncovered the bones of nearly 50 flying reptiles that lived during the Cretaceous. Named Caiuajara dobruskii, this winged pterosaur once inhabited southern Brazil.
Scientists have found that over the past several decades, snow cover has thinned significantly in the Arctic, particularly on sea ice in western waters near Alaska.
Scientists believe that they can use climate relicts in order to better understand how ecological communities are affected by climate change.
