We may have just managed to use up Earth's resources for the entire year.
Climate change may be having an impact on your fishing. Scientists have discovered that as temperatures warm, fish are moving to newly warmed waters, putting local species at risk.
It turns out that rising temperatures may be threatening birds. Researchers have studied the gains and losses of populations of birds across Mexico in the 20th century and have found that climate change may be causing a loss of biodiversity.
As infectious diseases increase worldwide, it's important to find out what may reduce instances of these diseases. Now, scientists may have figured out a way: biodiversity.
Scientists have discovered a staggering 100 new species in the ocean water of the Philippines. The findings are the result of a multi-year exploration of the Coral Triangle's biological treasures.
It turns out that a colorful and charismatic reptilian species, which is only found in Madagascar, is actually composed of 11 different species.
A new study may reveal an unprecedented surge in biodiversity that occurred 20 million years ago.
There's some good news for conservation efforts. Scientists have discovered that some biodiversity losses can actually be reversed.
Scientists have found that bony fish, the most biodiverse fish group in both salt- and freshwater, achieved their diversity only after mass extinction events during the Permian and Triassic periods.
Some places in the world simply have more biodiversity than others. Why this is, though, has long puzzled scientists. Now, researchers have found that no single "one-size-fits-all" model can explain how biodiversity hotspots come to be.
Global biodiversity losses are on the rise and now, scientists have taken a closer look at how to halt this continued decline.
New tools could help our world's threatened species, and they could help preserve biodiversity across the globe. Scientists have found that tools to collect and share information could help stem the loss of Earth's species.
