Called "extremophiles," certain small fish are predisposed to remain lively and (well) alive in toxic waters when other fish cannot do so.
The mysterious Menominee Crack split down the middle of Michigan forest following a magnitude-1 earthquake in Oct. 2010. Researchers have now identified the strange feature as a geological pop-up.
The grand, 5 to 7-foot wingspanned Verreaux's Eagle, an apex predator in Africa, is living more successfully in an agricultural area than in a nearby mountain range, according to a new study.
An earthquake that starts out in one spot could more easily than thought leap to a nearby fault and create double earthquakes, as happened in Pakistan in 1997, says a new study. This could have impacts for Los Angeles.
Scientists say the Red Sea is home to a a newly discovered luminous creature that lives on the shells of nocturnal snails.
A species of vesper bat has largely expanded its range across Europe since the 1980s. Researchers say climate change is likely the cause.
A new study from the University of Minnesota found secondary tropical forests are able to sequester 11 times more carbon than old-growth forests. Researchers say this will help conservationists manage forest better.
It sounds a little improbable -- old bottles, paper and clothing turned into gift-ready bouquets. And yet, like the smooth-looking recycled-plastic walkways at many playgrounds, a Utah-based company called Eco Flower is pressing those materials into attractive service, and saving many items from the landfill. They're one of several companies re-using in various ways, such as those that make urban bags out of old seatbelts and tires. But this one's for Valentine's Day.
Researchers have found and identified for new species of algae in Hawaii. However, the specimens were found at unexpected depths and closely resemble those found in much shallower waters.
From giant water bugs to pythons and leeches, "Wild Things" star Dominic Monaghan goes on quite the adventure in Vietnam this week.
Researchers have identified why so many sperm whales washed up on beaches in the North Sea. It turns out they were hunting for squid in shallow waters.
Following rampant deforestation in Europe, conservationists planted fast-growing, commercially valuable conifer trees, rather than native broadleaved trees. It turns out this type of forest management has accelerated climate change.
Researchers suggest that half of wild animal attacks could be avoided if humans were properly informed on how to act in such encounters. Their study also includes a series of basic rules that should be followed when visiting an animal's known habitat.
We've all heard about how noise pollution negatively impacts marine environments. But a recent study suggests that motor boats, rather than large cargo ships, easily stresses young damselfish which ultimately gives their predators the upper hand.
