Scientists have discovered that a genetic mutation is responsible for the juicy kernels on a corn cob and caused them to be out in the open rather than trapped inside an inedible casing as tough as a walnut shell.
Scientists have discovered surprisingly high geothermal heating beneath the Antarctic ice sheet.
Scientists have found that the risk of a shark white attack for individual ocean users in California has fallen by a staggering 91 percent since 1950. Now, researchers may have found out why that is.
Scientists have discovered that pandas manage their bamboo diet because they essentially evolved to be extremely lazy.
Seabird populations have actually dropped by a staggering 70 percent since the 1950s. These findings, in particular, are a stark indication that marine ecosystems are rapidly declining.
A new review reveals that global sea levels have risen at least 20 feet above present levels on multiple occasions over the past three million years.
Climate change is causing bumblebees to decline in force. Now, scientists have conducted the most comprehensive study to date of the impacts of climate change on critical pollinators.
Decreased physical activity in mammals can lead to significant bone loss and increased fracture risk over time. Yet this is not quite the case for the black bear (Ursus americanus), who is physically inactive for up to six months annually but somehow manages to keep a strong, healthy skeletal struct...
