There may be a new theory when it comes to the process of evolution. Scientists have discovered that dramatic changes in a landscape may not drive species divergence. Instead, it could be that a species' ability to move may play a far greater role.
Your lakes may be turning into jelly. Scientists have found that as calcium levels continue to decline in soft-water lakes, certain organisms are also disappearing and being replaced by jelly-like creatures.
A catastrophic landslide that occurred 21 million years ago may be the largest to have ever occurred on Earth's surface. Scientists have discovered the remains of the Markagunt gravity slide, which was the size of three Ohio counties.
Most are aware that bleaching events in tropical corals can cause short-term impacts and devastate reefs. Now, though, scientists have found that there are longer-term effects.
It turns out that seed dormancy is about as old as the seeds themselves. Scientists have taken a closer look at the evolution of seeds and have found a bit more about the intriguing phenomenon.
As carbon dioxide continues to enter out Earth's atmosphere, the ocean is continuing to acidify. Now, scientists have developed a new way to measure how this acidification is affecting marine ecosystems over an entire oceanic basin.
Could volcanoes be slowing global warming? That may just be the case. Scientists have found that small volcanic eruptions could be slowing the warming process across our planet.
Paleontologists are rewriting the history of New Zealand's ancient whales. They've discovered a previously unknown genus of fossil baleen whales and two species within it.
What do lizards and birds have in common? They have more similarities than you might think. Scientists have found that like birds, iguanas have breathing that flows in a one-directional loop through their lungs.
Overhunting may be causing elephants populations to decline, but it's also affecting the vegetation around them. Scientists have found that the dramatic loss of elephants is also leading to the local extinction of certain tree species.
Scientists have uncovered the virus behind disintegrating starfish. Not only that, but they've discovered what's behind the disease's sudden appearance, which has decimated sea stars on the North American Pacific Coast.
