Researchers from the University of Miami (UM) and Atmospheric Science have found a large magma chamber right below the world's most active volcano, located in the deeper parts of Kilauea.
A salamander-like axolotl, otherwise known as Mexico's "water monster," may have unfortunately gone extinct due to its diminishing natural habitat in Mexico City's lakes.
How long can sharks live? Quite a while, it turns out. Scientists have discovered that great white sharks grow much slower and live significantly longer than previously thought. The findings could have implications for conserving this species in the future.
Many of us consider bugs of any kinds ordinary pests, annoyances and distractions. Yet a recent study looks at how the stink bug-a brown marmorated insect that spreads throughout parts of the United states, is especially beneficial as a biological control agent for various insect pests of cotton, so...
Ever notice how dogs like to gather around each other when they're doing their business (for lack of a better word)? Well, a recent study by researchers from Czech and Germany shows that this may be due to the animal's sense of Earth's magnetic field. In other words, this influences where the animal...
For the male canary, the hormone testosterone plays an important part in changing his song behavior and creating the perfect pitch when it comes to both song quality and frequency.
What do sharks, honeybees and humans all have in common? It turns out that they all travel the same way. Scientists have created a mathematical pattern called a Levy walk, which can describe the foraging pattern of many different species of animals.
Oh, the sugar beet. A delightful plant native to parts of Europe that accounts for nearly 30 percent of the world's annual sugar production.
Scientists have recently discovered the biomechanics behind how Marine snail larvae swim. This is particularly important as the larvae's swim patterns hold a key behavior that determines their dispersal and ultimately, their survival.
A modern species of caterpillars is evolving at a much faster rate in response to higher temperatures from climate change. Researchers believe that warmer weather in the past 40 years may explain the reason that these creatures feed rapidly in order to survive.
As environmental conditions shift and change due to human impacts, wildlife across the globe is suffering. Now, scientists have stated that protecting and enhancing our wildlife for future generations will need radical new policies that are informed by history as much as science. The findings reveal...
