Jumping spiders are known for their ability to spring high into the air. Now, scientists have managed to make recordings of neurons associated with the visual perception of a jumping spider.
Scientists have long wondered how male moths locate females flying hundreds of meters away. Now, they may have their answer. It all has to do with air flow.
Scientists are using an unusual compound to get a closer look at the electrical activity in neurons and other cells: tarantula toxin.
Understanding Earth's carbon cycle is a huge part of better understanding climate change. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at the world's global carbon pumps by examining the ocean's phytoplankton.
Is evolution predictable? That's the question that scientists asked themselves in this latest study as they explored bioluminescence.
The stegosaur may have been a herbivore, but it was no pushover in a fight. New evidence reveals that a predatory allosaur was stabbed to death by a stegosaurus, showing that this dinosaur wasn't one to think lightly of.
