An entire ecosystem may be threatened by climate change. Scientists have found that several rare upland bird species are being put at risk together with other ecosystem functions in blanket bogs.
Some of the earliest civilizations in the Middle East and Fertile Crescent may have been affected by abrupt climate change.
There may be an environmentally friendly way to protect coastal areas from sea-level rise: save the mangroves. Scientists have found that mangrove forests actually help protect coastlines from rising seas.
Scientists have found that ocean acidification may cause some major changes in the ocean's food chain due to its effect on phytoplankton communities.
The cool summer of 2013 boosted the amount of Arctic sea ice, but that doesn't mean that the Arctic isn't still at risk. Scientists have discovered that the sea ice increased by a third after the summer of 2013.
Not all animals are going to suffer from warming oceans. Scientists have found that marine species with large ranges will actually be able to extend their territories faster in response to climate change.
It turns out that the volume of Arctic sea ice increased by as much as a third after the summer of 2013.
The tropical Andes may be in trouble. Scientists have provided the first robust assessment of climate change impacts on extinction risk in the tropical Andes.
What keeps our oceans cool? Marine plankton apparently does the job.
Climate change may be worsening wildfires. A new study reveals that as temperatures rise and as droughts sweep across North America, climate change is causing fire seasons to be longer and wildfires themselves to be more intense.
It turns out that 2014 was Earth's warmest year on record. Scientists have taken a closer look at temperatures over the past year and have found that globally, 2014 was the hottest yet recorded.
