Scientists may have just learned how little they know about diversity in the Amazon. They've discovered three previously unknown species of shrimp that evolved about 10 million years ago.
The human gut is remarkable when it comes to packing away turkey and stuffing for Thanksgiving. But have you ever wondered how other animals manage to survive on food that's inedible to others?
How did life first evolve? Creepy, crawly centipedes may hold the answer. Scientists have examined this arthropod's DNA and have been given new insight into how life first developed on our planet.
A warming world could be bad news for honeybees. Scientists have found that the spread of an exotic bee parasite, now found worldwide, is linked to climate and not just superior competitive ability.
It turns out that some animals may be able to steal toxins in order to fight off bacteria. Scientists have found that ticks, mites and other animals have "stolen" microbe toxin genes in order to battle otherwise harmful bacteria.
Ecosystems across the globe are in danger--from coral reefs to prairie grasslands. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at these collapses in an effort to prevent them.
When it comes to climate change and global warming, extreme weather can play a major role in proving its existence-or can it? Scientists have found that climate change skeptics are unmoved by droughts, floods, heat waves and other weather events.
Does having a boy or a girl determine how social a mother chimp is? That may just be the case.
A robot is giving scientists a new look on Antarctic sea ice. The underwater robot, called SeaBED, has now helped create the first detailed, high-resolution 3D maps of Antarctic sea ice, revealing accurate ice thickness from areas that were previously too difficult to access.
A team of scientists has managed to reconstruct a detailed "tree of life" for turtles that may tell researchers a bit more about their evolutionary origins.
A team of UK researchers has shed some new light on the climate on the Little Ice Age. They've discovered that the most extreme episodes of the Little Ice Age were global as opposed to just in Europe and North America.
Primates may be key when it comes to revitalizing tropical forests. Scientists have taken a closer look at seed dispersal and have discovered that primates are crucial when it comes to spreading seeds and ensuring that they grow.
