We may be able to forecast volcanic eruptions a bit more easily. A new study has examined the sequence of seismic events that led up to the eruption of Redoubt and has discovered a little bit more about these explosive events.
Songbirds are more resilient than we thought. New research reveals that a bird called the great tit can handle climate change far better than expected.
Turtles are known for their hard shells, but how did they evolve this unique adaptation? A new study reveals that turtles are not the primitive reptiles we once thought they were; instead, they're part of a sister group of birds and crocodiles.
How do we moderate climate change? Plant more trees. A new study reveals that plants can actually release gases that help form clouds and cool the atmosphere.
A massive, 28-foot-long basking shark washed ashore on a Rhode Island beach just this morning.
Major earthquakes in Chile have deformed our planet's crust permanently, scarring Earth's surface.
One juvenile green turtle and five endangered Kemp's ridley sea turtles were set free into the wild after spending one year in rehabilitation overcoming injuries.
Just as the summer comes, it's important to remember that plants release gases to help form clouds and cool the atmosphere, or at least that's what researchers from IIASA and the University of Helsinki believe.
The first genetically modified phosphorescent sheep have been born in Uruguai, scientists announced Friday (26).
When it comes to the wild, we certainly think that survival of the fittest always rings true. But does that always mean that the bigger, greedier animals take the cake? Not necessarily, according to a recent study by scientists at the University of Exeter and Texas A&M University. In fact, for fish,...
Is it really survival of the fittest? That may not be the case when it comes to evolution. Computer scientists have discovered that the popular explanation of competition to survive in nature may not actually be necessary for evolvability to increase.
