Fossil evidence has allowed scientists to reconstruct the Helicoprion, the ancient spiral-toothed fish.
A team of international scientists have discovered an intense warming phase around 52 million years ago in drill cores obtained from the seafloor near Antarctica a region that has been important in climate research.
Using a sophisticated laser scanning system and modern-day large mammals as a starting point, scientists propose that dinosaurs weighed far, far less than previously thought.
Our common ancestors might have not come from Africa, but Asia.
The skulls of adult birds show a remarkable similarity to the skulls of baby dinosaurs.
A 3-D model of one of our earliest tetrapods shows us that it probably "flopped" around instead of walking as we know it.
Sneezing monkey, SpongeBob mushroom, night-blooming orchid and teensy attack wasp make 2012 list.
A materials scientist at Michigan Technological University has discovered a chemical reaction that not only eats up the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide, it also creates something useful. And, by the way, it releases energy.
An international team of researchers, including a University of Virginia professor, has found that two ink sacs from 160-million-year-old giant cephalopod fossils discovered two years ago in England contain the pigment melanin, and that it is essentially identical to the melanin found in the ink sac...
It may seem counterintuitive, but one way to reduce carbon dioxide emissions to the atmosphere may be to produce pure carbon dioxide in powerplants that burn fossil fuels. In this way, greenhouse gases - once isolated within a plant - could be captured and stored in natural reservoirs, deep in the E...
A nearly intact skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus sold for $1.05 million at auction in New York on Sunday, although the sale has been disputed by the Mongolian government, which has questioned whether it was obtained legally.
