A total of one in six species may become extinct by 2100. Scientists have found for every degree that global temperatures rise, more species will become extinct.
The decline of the world's large herbivores, especially in Africa and parts of Asia, may cause an "empty landscape" in some of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet in the future.
Scientists have discovered that the likelihood of record-breaking warm years in England may substantially increase due to human-caused climate change.
Scientists have looked at 11 species of marine mammals who depend on Arctic sea ice to live, feed and breed and have examined how their habitat will evolve in a warming world.
Scientists have used the fossil record during the past 23 million years to predict which marine animals and ecosystems are at greatest risk of extinction from human impact.
When it comes to cracking nuts, monkeys have it down. Scientists have found that wild bearded capuchin monkeys use tools in order to crack open nuts for food.
It turns out that the asteroid that slammed into Earth about 66 million years ago and killed off the dinosaurs probably rang our planet like a bell. The results were massive volcanic eruptions around the globe.
Researchers have "weighed" Antarctica's ice sheet using gravitational satellite data and have found that during the past decade, Antarctica's ice sheet lost twice the amount of ice in its western portion compared with what it accumulated in the east.
Scientists have learned a bit more about how bats fly-and it all has to do with their sense of touch.
Dead zones may be coming to the coast. A team of researchers have discovered areas with extremely low levels of oxygen in the tropical North Atlantic, only a few hundred kilometers off the coast of West Africa.
A new study may reveal an unprecedented surge in biodiversity that occurred 20 million years ago.
