Scientists may have discovered a new species of firefly in California. While college student Joshua Oliva was hiking, he managed to uncover a new species of this insect.
It turns out that mosquitoes and humans may be in an evolutionary arms race. Each time you put on bug spray in the summer, you're striking at these insects-and they're adapting.
Researchers have uncovered six new species of subterranean "Dracula" ants that hunt underground. The aggressive species prey on other species with their dagger-like teeth.
Scientists have discovered that hawkmoths have the unique ability to slow down their brains when hovering in order to see better in the dark and to better target the swaying flowers that they look to for food.
Some species just can't take the heat, and underground ants are one of them. Scientists have found that certain army ant species that live in tropical forests are ill-suited to high temperatures.
Scientists may have discovered the origins of spider and centipede venom. They've found that the venom evolved from an insulin-like hormone, similar to what can be found in humans.
Researchers have taken a closer look at these hummingbird-sized hawkmoths to find out what obstacles they have to overcome while feeding on nectar at night.
This is a story that's likely to give you nightmares. A 17-year-old from Pozuzo recently had a 3-centimter-long worm pulled from his eye after it had lived there for about a month.
Pesticides harm bees. Now, though, researchers have discovered another threat. It turns out that fungicides labeled "safe for bees" also indirectly may hurt these pollinators.
Most people enjoy colorful ladybugs. However, what most people don't know is that these insects are brightly colored to reveal their toxicity to predators.
When voracious herbivores attack plants, the vegetation has few ways to defend itself. However, it does react. Scientists have discovered that when a plant is attacked, a number of physiological responses are triggered.
