The stature of pygmies is well-suited to tropical rainforests, but the mechanisms underlying their growth remain poorly understood.--until now.
Some dinosaurs were voracious predators, ripping and tearing through their prey with their sharp teeth. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at the bite of dinosaurs in order to better understand the structure that allowed them to be such successful hunters.
How do cosmic winds impact galaxy evolution? Scientists may now have a clearer picture as to how it happens
How did animals first start to breathe air? That's exactly what scientists are looking at a bit more closely.
Astronomers have discovered jets of material ejected by still-forming young brown dwarfs.
It turns out that boa constrictors don't kill their prey by suffocation. Scientists have found that, in fact, these snakes kill their prey through another method: cardiac arrest.
The Jurassic period wasn't only an age for dinosaurs; it was also an age for mammals. Scientists have found that mammals evolved ten times faster in the middle of the Jurassic than they were at the end of the period.
Scientists have uncovered the oldest sperm to ever be found--by accident.
Could a human's hand be more primitive than a chimp's? That may just be the case, according to new research. A new study reveals that human hands are actually less developed in terms of evolution than a chimp's hand.
Scientists have discovered that pandas manage their bamboo diet because they essentially evolved to be extremely lazy.
It turns out that brain complexity can evolve before brain size in primates. Scientists have discovered that the brain hidden inside the oldest known Old World Monkey was tiny but remarkably wrinkled.
