Scientists have taken a closer look at the circulation of the ocean and have examined what role it plays in regulating Earth's climate.
Scientists working on islands have found that native lizard species evolved in as little as 15 years as a result of pressure from an invading lizard species.
When it comes to tropical deforestation, global consumption may be largely to blame. Scientists have found that more than a third of recent deforestation can be tied to the production of beef, soy, palm oil and timber.
Scientists have spent six years testing coatings to control the reattachment of invasive mussels to water and power facilities.
When did we first begin being able to drink milk? That's a good question--and you may be surprised by the answer. Scientists have found that ancient Europeans remained intolerant to lactose for 5,000 years after they adopted agricultural practices.
Scientists may have managed to solve the "Karakoram anomaly," a phenomenon that has long puzzled climate change researchers.
Wild chimps may be developing innovative strategies in order to cope with living in disturbed habitat.
Jumping spiders are known for their ability to spring high into the air. Now, scientists have managed to make recordings of neurons associated with the visual perception of a jumping spider.
Scientists have long wondered how male moths locate females flying hundreds of meters away. Now, they may have their answer. It all has to do with air flow.
Scientists are using an unusual compound to get a closer look at the electrical activity in neurons and other cells: tarantula toxin.
Understanding Earth's carbon cycle is a huge part of better understanding climate change. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at the world's global carbon pumps by examining the ocean's phytoplankton.
