Scientists have created a material out of industrial waste and orange peel that may be able to cheaply and effectively remove mercury from ocean water.
Plastic trash can be found around the world-even the Arctic. Scientists have found that this marine litter is present at the sea surface of Arctic waters, though they're still unsure how it made it so far north.
There may be a global collapse of marine ecosystems.
Scientists have taken a closer look at the interactions between wild animals and ecotourists and have found that all of these interactions put animals at greater risk of being eaten.
Imagine if plastic bags weren't such an environmental hazard. Imagine if instead they were made out of biodegradable materials.
Marine Scientists find that unsustainable harvesting of large predatory fish, along with the culling of sharks, can have far-reaching consequences for the way climate change is being handled.
Meal worms could be the answer in solving the issue of plastic waste. Scientists are conducting ongoing experiments with meal worms whose digestive systems are optimal for breaking down the environmental hazard.
Mushrooms aren't just good to eat. It turns out that they may also be useful for creating batteries. Scientists have found that portabella mushrooms may stop cell phone batteries from degrading over time.
A recent study found that there is a decline in marine diversity over the last several decades, fish populations have declined by 75 percent while the population for marine vertebrates has decreased significantly.
Imagine watching evolution in real time. That's what a group of researchers are doing in an ongoing effort the record the interaction of the environment and evolution. They've monitored a population of guppies in order to better understand the process of evolution.
More intensive farming practice may seem like a bad thing for the environment. Now, though, researchers have found that intensive farming practices may be better for tropical birds.
When it comes to saving the environment, understanding the world's oceans is crucial. Scientists have announced that a greater understanding of our oceans is essentially for the well being of the world's population.
