Boys will be boys, as they say, but a new study shows that more aggressive adolescents are likely to develop into stronger teenagers.
The colorful mantis shrimp packs a powerful punch. In fact, it's been known to crack the glass of aquariums. Now, scientists have taking a closer look at this cigar-sized crustacean and have learned a bit more about how they've evolved their 60-mile-per-hour blow.
Fossils discovered in Kenya may tell researchers a bit more about the evolution of hippos.
Parenting responsibility is rarely equal, and that's true across species. Now, scientists have taken a closer look to find out why that is, and why babies are only largely cared for by one parent.
Scientists have uncovered a new trend in evolution. They've found that animals tend to get larger over time.
When it comes to avoiding extinction, size matters. Scientists have discovered that in the battle to diverse environments, animals that are sexually dimorphic, which means that the males and females differ in size, have a better chance at survival.
Scientists have gotten a closer look at the gene that helped spark the theory of evolution. They've identified a gene in Galapagos finches that was studied by Charles Darwin that influences beak shape, and reveals a bit more about the genetic foundation of evolution.
Tired of waiting on the perfect man? Evolution shows it's ok to settle instead of holding out.
Lungfish and salamanders can hear, despite not having an outer ear or tympanic middle ear. Now, scientists are taking a closer look at exactly how hearing evolved about 300 million years ago.
You may just want to settle for "Mr. Okay" rather than "Mr. Right." Evolutionary researchers have discovered that settling is a better evolutionary strategy than waiting for the perfect person.
Scientists may have uncovered a new mechanism of inheritance. They've found that genes can be switched off, or silenced, in response to the environment or other factors, and sometimes these changes can be passed from one generation to the next.
