While coral reefs may be under attack from climate change and coastal development, there may be one animal that's protecting them.
Dolphins may be able to sense magnets, according to a new study.
About 210 million years ago, dog-sized dinosaurs hid from the predators at the top of the food chain: reptilian predators called phytosaurs and rauisuchids. Now, scientists have found that these predators may have interacted with each other far more often than previously thought.
It turns out that a melting Arctic is not the reason why Nordic Seas are becoming less saline. Scientists have found that the source of fresher water is actually linked to the Gulf Stream, which is ferrying water from the Atlantic to the Arctic.
Researchers have discovered a new species near the headwaters of the Rio Cano in Panama. The bright orange poison dart frog has a unique call, and was named Andinobates geminisae.
Biologists have discovered a new bright orange dart frog species with a unique call in Donoso, Panama.
As our climate changes and more CO2 enters the atmosphere, the oceans are becoming more acidic. Now, scientists have found that young sea stars from the Baltic Sea suffer more from the effects of ocean acidification than adults.
With its multiple tentacles and quick movements, the octopus appears like it could be alive--but it's not. The octopus is actually a robot that scientists have been working on for the past few years.
Is it a plane? Is it a bird? No! It's a cloud of migrating Monarch butterflies.
When it comes to body size, larger species usually win out over smaller ones. Now one biologist has found that sometimes small species of birds can dominate larger species during aggressive interactions, especially when they interact with distantly related species.
As our climate changes, forest ecosystems around the world are also changing. Now, 107 collaborators have taken a look at trees around the world in order to examine how 59 forests from 24 countries are changing.
During division, cells copy and split DNA while breaking safely into two viable daughter cells, a process called cytokinesis. Yet the molecular basis of how plant cells accomplish this feat without mistakes has been unknown--until now.
