Most of us have seen "The Little Shop of Horrors," but do we really know how carnivorous plants function? And more to the point, did you know that some of these plants like a little bit of vegetables in their diet, too?
Using a simple mathematical model based on optical measurements, researchers can explain the stunning colors of these springs and can visually recreate how they appeared years ago.
Crows are smarter than your average bird-brain, but did you know that they may be on the same level as monkeys and apes?
Scientists have solved a long-standing mystery in space. They've uncovered the origin of the "theta aurora," an aurora that occurs at startlingly high latitudes on Earth.
Earth may be mostly covered by water, but where did it first come from? Scientists have long wondered whether water was created by our planet, or whether it arrived via icy comets. Now, they may have their answer.
Scientists have found that birds may be better at predicting storms than we are. It turns out that golden-winged warblers apparently knew in advance that a storm that would spawn 84 confirmed tornadoes was coming.
New findings published in the journal Environmental Science and Technology show that Illinois is the most critical hub in the network of U.S. domestic food transfers.
Previous studies have linked air pollution to autism. Now, new findings presented by the Environmental Health Perspectives reveal that certain types of air pollution and exposure may put some at higher risk.
Climate change is having a big impact on our environment. But it also has the potential to completely transform agriculture. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at future predictions to determine exactly what the agriculture business might face in the coming years.
Some 550 million year old fossils may be telling researchers a bit more about the process of fossil formation in general. The new discoveries could allow scientists to interpret fossils in a new way, learning a bit more about the ancient creatures that they represent.
The asteroid that caused the dinosaurs to become extinct may have also almost wiped out mammals. Scientists have found that 66 million years ago, many mammals died alongside the dinosaurs.
