Scientists may have just managed to fill in some major gaps in the evolution of a group of animals that includes horses and rhinos.
Evolution may be based in science, but it can be far from logical. There are some weird and wacky animals in the natural world and Mara Grunbaum, author of WTF, Evolution?!, has taken notice.
There may be a new theory when it comes to the process of evolution. Scientists have discovered that dramatic changes in a landscape may not drive species divergence. Instead, it could be that a species' ability to move may play a far greater role.
When humans were first beginning to evolve, they had two extinct relatives--Neanderthals and an archaic human group called Denisovans. Now, though, new findings reveal that there may have been yet another and previously unknown group that bred with the Denisovans.
Men apparently evolved better navigation ability than women because men with better spatial skills could roam further and have children with more mates.
Astronomers may have just received a peak at what our solar system was like in its infancy.
When exactly and how this leap occurred-from single-cellular to multi-cellular life-has long intrigued scientists. Now, researchers have witnessed the real time evolution of simple self-reproducing groups of cells from previously individual cells.
Scientists have just filled in an evolutionary gap. They've discovered the first fossil of an amphibious ichthyosaur in China, which is the first ever link to the dolphin-like ichthyosaur to its terrestrial ancestors.
A certain enzyme may help explain the origins of life on Earth. Scientists have created a test tube enzyme with a unique property that may have been crucial when life was first beginning to emerge.
Is evolution predictable? That's the question that scientists asked themselves in this latest study as they explored bioluminescence.
It turns out that parasitic bacteria may be to blame for the eventual evolution of mitochondria, the powerhouses of animal and plant cells.
Archaeologists have made a surprising discovery. They've unearthed the oldest known lamprey fossil to day. The finding could shed light on the ancient origins of the eel-like, blood-sucking lamprey and, in turn, reveal a bit more about the evolution of other animals.
