New findings published in the journal PLOS ONE show us that with the help of ultraviolet (UV) light, scientists could detect color patterns on 30 ancient seashell species.
Tiny, burrowing reptiles known as worm lizards may have dispersed by rafting across the oceans soon after the extinction of dinosaurs rather than by continental drift.
When will it be spring in your neck of the woods? That's a good question and now, you may be able to check with a simple map.
This songbird may be tiny, but it managed a flight of epic proportions.
There may be a new and better method for predicting the number of hurricanes in an upcoming season.
Plastic pollution is impacting our seas-everywhere from surface waters to the sea ocean. Now, though, scientists have made a somewhat unsettling discovery. I turns out that puffins on the Isle of May in Scotland are actually nibbling on little nuggets of plastic.
Some 300,000-year-old eggshells are telling scientists a bit more about the Paleolithic environment.
It's been almost five years since the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploding, sending gallons upon gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. Now, scientists have assessed the wildlife in the Gulf, and have found that it's still suffering from the oil spill.
Plants living in arid, mountainous and humid region on our planet often rely on their leaves to obtain the moisture they need for survival by pulling mist straight out of the air. But exactly how plants managed to survive on mist alone has long puzzled scientists.
Even if climate change were to stop today, it could take millennia for deep sea ecosystems to recover. Scientists have taken a closer look at marine ecosystems and have found that they may take thousands of years to recover from climate-related upheavals.
Feeding food to wild animals may just impact their risk of disease. Scientists have found that supplemental feeding of wildlife can actually increase the spread of some infectious diseases and decrease the spread of others.
