Researchers from the Institut Català de Paleontologia, Spain and colleagues created a 3D model of the endangered Chinese giant salamander to reveal just how the creature feeds on prey. The animal captures prey that is quickly scooped up in front of it. However, it can also survey the area for any q...
New findings published in the journal PLOS ONE show us that with the help of ultraviolet (UV) light, scientists could detect color patterns on 30 ancient seashell species.

There's something to be said for green roofs. Scientists have found that green roofs with high vegetation density are actually 60 percent more efficient than non-green roofs.
Bats may never drive cars, but they have been known to obey some 'traffic rules'--at least when it comes to turning and avoiding possible collisions when traveling at high speeds.
New findings published in the journal ZooKeys look at the recent discovery of a little jumping spider that belongs to the family Salticidae and the genus Stenaelurillus. Discovered in the "Western Ghats" of southern India, the spider Stenaelurillus albus, along with other similar species, has a mati...
If you heard that you were infected with two parasites, you'd probably think of this as a really bad thing. Well, not necessarily, according to recent findings published in the journal of Science Advances (at least for cattle, that is.)
New findings presented at the 249th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS) show that air pollutants may have something to do with the severity of our allergies during the transition from spring to winter.
We probably don't really think about exactly what's involved in the creation of a plant, but a seed is actually carrying an embryo. It is als also carrying a very important food storage that will later be needed for the initial growth of the seedling, to soon blossom into a plant.
New findings published in the Journal of Proteome Research suggest that human babies may need more of a nutritional boost from breast-milk proteins than infants of one of their closest primate relatives.
Science World Report interviewed entomologist and Hollywood "bug wrangler" Diana Terranova about her obsession with bugs dating back to her childhood, caring for her insects and working behind the scenes to help actors get comfortable with her real-life creepy crawlies.
Dogs have earned the phrase "man's best friend" for quite some time. They've believed to have been domesticated since 15,000 years ago, evolving from wolves just about when humans were making their first settlements.
