Scientists took a look at the possibility of fertilizing algal blooms with iron in the hopes that they can trap carbon dioxide and offset rising global levels. What they found, though, was a gluttonous diatom.
A team of evolutionary biologists have revealed an interesting find: male guppies continue to reproduce for around 10 months after they die by living on the stored sperms in females, according to a news release.
The team of researchers have identified the oldest remains of human derived lead pollution in the world in the northernmost region of Michigan. This indicates that lead pollution due to copper mining first appeared in North America than Europe, Asia and South America.
Archaeopteryx is known as the "link" between dinosaurs and birds. Now scientists have conducted the first complete chemical analysis of feathers from the species in order to find out exactly what this "dinobird" might have looked like.
Scientists may have discovered why one microalga has had such global success. They've sequenced the genome of the calcified alga Emiliania huxleyi and have learned more about its enormous adaptive potential through its DNA.
cientists recently discovered that a cheetah's sprinting speed may not be the only thing that makes them the fastest animal in the world.
A new report shows many scientist's belief that restricting psychoactive drugs could harm research findings.
Chimpanzees are an endangered species, so why should captive chimps get special treatment? That's the question that wildlife officials are asking as they propose that there should be special permits required for their sale, use in research or other activities that may harm them.
A new proposal announced by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service highlights the need to classify both wild and captive chimpanzees as endangered.ThE proposal reveals AN increasing threat to the species and supports the chimpanzee's status with the existing legal requests, as well as protection for oth...
No food for the human race without bees? It is not quite as straightforward as that. A case study by ecologists from ETH Zurich in a coffee-growing area in India reveals that pollinating insects are just one production factor among many. Farmers have several possibilities to increase their harvest.
An international team of scientists has developed crop models to better forecast food production to feed a growing population – projected to reach 9 billion by mid-century – in the face of climate change.
