NASA Hubble Space Telescope images revealed 2,753 young, blue star clusters in a neighboring galaxy. This sheds light on the formation history of stars in our universe.
COTSbot to the rescue! A robotics team has developed a robot to eliminate the invasive crown-of-thorns (COTS) starfish, which is a huge threat to the Great Barrier Reef. What next, a robot for Lionfish in U.S. waters?
Much like people living in packed cities, it may be now that animals of prey in Africa have a smaller number of offspring when living in crowded conditions. Turns out, this is affecting lions and other predators.
Researchers believe that if polar bears end up marooned on land, they could eke out a living on alternative food sources. A recent study looked at those sources.
University of York biologists are now able to better understand the toxicity of TNT left in plants at military and other sites where explosives were used. This could lead to new herbicides to remedy areas contaminated by those explosives.
A now-extinct monkey's one-million-year-old fossil was found embedded in limestone in an underwater cave in the Dominican Republic. This adds to findings about New World monkeys in the Caribbean.
University of New Hampshire researchers discovered that crop rotation could combat the stress that soils experience with increased agriculture.
Green sea turtles are considered to be endangered worldwide. However, researchers from the University of Central Florida have counted a record-breaking number of nests, which suggests the species might be recovering.
Exposure to farm dust is linked to protection against asthma and allergies. While the benefits of growing up on a farm have been known for some time now, a new study discovered a missing link.
Scientists have discovered a thin layer of oxygen created by photosynthetic bacteria at the bottom of a Antarctic lake. This could better explain what was happening on Earth billions of years ago.
Biodiversity of areas throughout the Tibetan Plateau were found to depend heavily on the underlying soils. This leads researchers to believe that biodiversity is just as important underground as it is above ground.
Recent studies found that magnesium peroxide may be abundant in extremely oxidized mantles and cores of rocky planets outside our solar system.
Researchers recently found that building more wind turbines might actually be less efficient and not produce as much renewable energy.
A team of researchers recently mapped tree populations, finding that about 3.04 trillion trees live on our planet.
