Bioluminescence is something that has fascinated scientists for years. Animals glow brightly in the gloom, shining out to either warn away predators or attract mates. Now, scientists have discovered a bit more about the origins of bioluminescence.
It turns out that humans aren't the only ones that have friends. Scientists have found that dolphins form highly complex and dynamic networks of friends that determine how they mingle and with whom they spend their time.
Mega floods from the Mississippi River may have helped wiped out an entire civilization. Scientists have discovered that at Cahokia, the largest prehistoric settlement of the Americas north of Mexico, major flood events caused its sharp decline.
It turns out that fjords may play more of a role in the carbon cycle than once expected. Scientists have found that fjords in Norway and around the world suck up millions of tons of carbon each year.
Scientists have long wondered how rorqual whales, which are baleen whales, can engulf massive mouthfuls of food. Now, they've discovered a unique nerve structure in the mouth and tongue of rorqual whales that can double in length and then recoil like a bungee cord.
Scientists have discovered an elusive new bird in China with the help of its distinctive song. The new bird, called the Sichuan bush warbler, likes to hide in grassy, scrubby vegetation.
A total of one in six species may become extinct by 2100. Scientists have found for every degree that global temperatures rise, more species will become extinct.
The decline of the world's large herbivores, especially in Africa and parts of Asia, may cause an "empty landscape" in some of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet in the future.
Scientists have discovered that the likelihood of record-breaking warm years in England may substantially increase due to human-caused climate change.
Scientists have looked at 11 species of marine mammals who depend on Arctic sea ice to live, feed and breed and have examined how their habitat will evolve in a warming world.
