You wouldn't think that air pollution has an impact on rivers, but it turns out that's exactly the case. Scientists have discovered that the amount of air pollution has a significant impact on the amount of water flowing through many rivers in the northern hemisphere.
Scientists have found that there's one set of insects that speed ahead more quickly than the others. It turns out that metamorphosing insects diversify far more quickly than other insects, and are the biggest contributors to the evolution of insect diversity.
Scientists have uncovered the fossil of a 52-million-year old beetle that once preyed on ants, feasting on their eggs and usurping resources from within the ant nest itself.
Herbivores, like caterpillars, play a major role when it comes to protecting habitats from invasive species. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at their impact, stressing their importance in ecosystems across the globe.
The officials at Detroit Zoo welcomes its latest addition- a reticulated giraffe born after a 15 month gestation period.
Scientists may have created the very first solar battery. Researchers have succeeded in combining a battery and a solar cell into one hybrid device, which could be huge in terms of renewable energy capture and storage.
Scientists have used a new wildlife tracking collar in order to continuously monitor the movements of mountain lions in the wild to determine how much energy they use to stalk, pounce and overpower their prey.
Giant clams live within tropical waters, growing to impressive sizes over their lives. Now, scientists have shown how these mollusks use iridescent structures to operate as living greenhouses that grow symbiotic algae as a source of food.
Cheetahs are the fastest land animals on the planet, accelerating to as fast as 60 mph. Yet these large cats are in danger of disappearing, and now scientists have announced that humans could be partially to blame.
Scientists have created a new map of the world's seafloor, showing an unprecedented level of detail when it comes to the mountains and trenches that rise and sink beneath the waves.
Things are more complicated in Greenland than we once thought. Scientists that are drilling and measuring the melt rates and ice sheet movement in Greenland have found that channels beneath the ice could make simplistic models inaccurate.
Scientists have found that current changes in the ocean around Antarctica are disturbingly similar to conditions that occurred 14,000 years ago and resulted in an abrupt 3 to 4 meter rise in the global sea level.
