Throughout the history of evolution, the most dominant creatures have worked to survive, oftentimes, preying on smaller and weaker animals. Of course, that's not always the case in rare circumstances. And science shows that's certainly true for the Zodarion cyrenaicum spider: a tiny, solitary anthro...
It seems that male dwarf spiders were one of the first to event chastity belts, according to a study published in the journal Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology.
A recent study shows that the risk of suicide may be greater during certain times of the day. According to researchers at the University of Pennsylvania, they found that suicide risks typically peak after midnight.
There's more to a spider's web than meets the eye and ears, that is, according to a recent study conducted by researchers at the universities of Oxford, Strathcylde and Sheffield.
These markings, also known as "serial homologues," or repetitive patterns in nature, have served as a function throughout millions of years and across vast numbers of species.
Researchers have just discovered the first genetic evidence that demonstrates how rapid evolution can help spread non-native plant species throughout new environments. With samples of centuries-old herbaria and DNA analysis, Belgium study authors were able to reconstruct genetic adaptations made by ...
The mystery of mountain snow has been relatively untouched by scientists. Yet flurries that fall against these continuities are also responsible for the amount of water found in rivers located on or near the land masses.
Ever wonder how spiders craft their webs? A group of scientists from the University of Akron have deciphered this art in the hopes of creating a more efficient and stronger commercial and biomedical adhesive.
Statistics show that around 1 in 68 children have been identified with an autism spectrum disorder (ASDs) according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a group of developmental disorders that are characterized by poor communication and behavioral skills. As more information form...
Researchers from RMIT University in Melbourne have discovered that the venom from marine cone snails that's used to immobilize prey could act as a painkiller in mammals.
The modern New Zealand sea lion may be somewhat of a newcomer, according to a recent study conducted by biologists from the University of Otago. In fact, they estimate that the now-extinct unique prehistoric New Zealand sea-lion died out as recently as 600 years ago.
Most plants gravitate towards the sun. That nourishing light helps them grow and stay healthy. Yet a recent study looks at how light-sensitive proteins found in plant cells may change how they discover light.
