You might not think that insects have complicated sex lives. When it comes to a certain small brown moth, though, you may be surprised.
Climate change is continuing to impact areas across the globe. Now, scientists have found that the country of Finland has experienced an average temperature increase of two degrees.
It turns out that Siberian permafrost may be leaking methane. Scientists have found that the seabed offshore the West Yamal Peninsula in Sibera is releasing gas into the water column and to the atmosphere.
Fish in Alaska may be adjusting to climate change. Scientists have found that Dolly Varden, a species of char, can keep feasting on a preferred food source-salmon eggs-even as temperatures rise and the climate continues to shift.
In some of the deepest parts of the ocean, an ecosystem of alien-like animals thrives. Now, scientists have returned from the first detailed study of the Mariana Trench aboard the research vessel Falkor and have made some new discoveries.
Scientists have taken a closer look at how seal level rise may influence flooding by the year 2050, and have discovered that the majority of U.S. coastal areas are likely to be threatened by 30 or more days of flooding each year.
Each Christmas, families pick out evergreen trees to place in their homes. In the wild, though, these trees are some of the hardiest and most amazing to be found, surviving extreme temperatures.
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?
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.
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.
