Scientists have found that the massive explosions that mark the end of a star's life work with supermassive black holes to sweep gas out of a galaxy's star-forming factory.
Genetic material from fungi collections may have helped researchers better understand the mushroom "tree of life."
Birds are a lot like dinosaurs. Now, scientists have discovered how dinosaur feet, which had back toes that were non-opposable, evolved into the thumb-like opposable toe of birds.
Bigger brains are only better if they have an evolutionary advantage.
It turns out that domestic animals became larger over time. Scientists have taken a closer look at the fossils of domestic species and found that as they grew closer to humans, they also grew bigger.
Snakes are known for their long, lean bodies and lack of limbs. Now, though, scientists have discovered that the very first snakes were nocturnal, stealth-hunting predators with tiny hind limbs that had ankles and toes.
Where did the bird's beak come from? In order to answer that question, you need to take a look back at dinosaurs--and that's exactly what a team of scientists did.
A recently-discovered species of flower may shed new light on evolution. The new Scottish flower, a monkey flower, actually shows how evolution occurs in real time.
Scientists may have discovered a missing link in the evolution of complex life. They've found a new microbe, nicknamed "Loki," that may reveal how billions of years ago complex cell types evolved from simple microbes.
A new study may reveal an unprecedented surge in biodiversity that occurred 20 million years ago.
Do you have back problems? You may have evolution to blame.
