Scientists are getting a more in depth look at climate change in Europe. A new drought atlas maps more than 2,000 years of climate history.
It turns out that human activities, such as greenhouse gas emissions and land use, were the main cause of extreme weather and climate events in 2014.
The shape of a bird's wing depends largely on its ancestors. Scientists have found that the shape of bird wings is influenced more by how closely related species are to one another than by flight style
Monkeys in Asia may actually have a virus from humans. Scientists have found that macaques harbor more diverse astroviruses, which can cause infectious gastroenteritis, or diarrhea, in humans.
Cougars may actually recolonize the middle part of the United States within the next 25 years.
In a recent study, researchers found that marine invasive species such as jellyfish and algae are benefiting from rising carbon dioxide levels in the ocean. These invasive species are inhabiting new areas of the planet, where they are destroying ecosystems.
Scientists may just have uncovered the largest rat in history. They've found the fossils of seven giant rat species on East Timor, with the largest up to 10 times the size of modern rats.
Scientists have found that about 550 million years ago, tiny marine creatures had complex skeletons, which suggests that the earliest complex animals lived millions of years earlier than previously known.
Researchers have found fossils belonging to the largest rats that ever lived. The fossil samples revealed evidence that these rats were ten times bigger than modern rats, according to a team of researchers from the Australian National University.
City employees have discovered a two-centuries-old burial vault under a New York City Park, where coffins and skeletons were found. This is within the proximity of the New York University campus. The discovery was made when city workers were in the process of putting down a water main in the area.
Researchers have found a new giant raptor in the Hell Creek Formation area of South Dakota. The newly found specimen is one of the largest largest with wing feathers, according to researchers from the University of Kansas.
In a recent study, scientists researched deep-sea hydrothermal vents and how they influence ocean carbons. The researchers found that organic carbon is removed from ocean water when it is heated through hydrothermal vents, which are like hot spots on the ocean floor.
