Scientists have found that if current trends continue, food production alone will reach, if not exceed, global targets for total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 2050.
Scientists have taken a new look at the satellite data from the last 19 years and have found that fresh water from melting glaciers has caused the sea-level around the coast of Antarctica to rise by 2 cm more than the global average of 6 cm.
A recent study conducted by researchers at Inbio-University of Porto found that several genes played distinct roles in the domestication of rabbits. As humans began domesticating animals as early as nine thousand to 15 thousand years ago, the rabbit joined this process much later-with a domesticatio...
The Tulsa Zoo is delighted to announce the arrival of three Malayan tiger cubs, that were born early this month.
Scientists have found that some species of marine phytoplankton can grow without consuming vitamin B1 (thiamine), which contradicts the common view that many eukaryotic microbes depend on scarce supplies of this vitamin in the ocean to survive.
You'd think that a warming world would cause milder winters. But that isn't the case, according to new research. Scientists have found that even though average snowfall will decrease, extreme snowfall events will likely still occur in the Northern Hemisphere.
Believe it or not, right now, there might be some mites making a home on your face.
As our climate changes and sea levels rise, coastal regions are at risk of erosion. Now, scientists have announced that coastal regions need to tackle the more immediate threats of human-led and non-climatic changes.
Scientists have uncovered a series of fossils which may just be the oldest representatives of a weird arthropod group. The 435-million-year-old fossils, in fact, represent a new genus of predatory arthropods.
What genetic changes actually transformed wild rabbits into domesticated forms has long remained a mystery. Now, scientists have found that many genes controlling the development and the brain and the nervous system were particularly important for rabbit domestication.
Scientists have taken a closer look at how cells arise to form the "zebra" pattern in the zebrafish, which may shed more light on the development and evolution of patterns seen in the animal world.
Littered across the surface of the Racetrack Playa, a dry lake, are hundreds of rocks that seem to have been dragged across the ground, leaving synchronized trails that can stretch for hundreds of feet. Now, scientists have uncovered the mysterious force that may be moving these rocks.
