Deep-sea fishing endangers vulnerable species that live farther underwater. To avoid permanent biodiversity loss, depth regulations are being discussed in Europe.
Insect-eating Balkan green lizards have new digestive systems that allow for varied food consumption. Researchers believe this is a result of less rainfall affecting their food supply.
Scientists developed an artificial leaf that can harness sunlight and produce efficient fuel. Their model is even cost-effective and rust-resistant.
Researchers from the University of Texas at El Paso studied fourth and fifth grade children to see how air pollution affected their school work. Even after accounting for other possible contributors, they found that children exposed to higher concentrations had lower GPAs.
Researchers simulating volcanic eruptions in a laboratory discovered that more accurate forecasts could be made by knowing how diverse the magma was.
A new giant file clam species was found off the coast of Canada. While the first sighting of this species was over 30 years ago, recent technology has finally allowed scientists to distinguish them as their own.
Two snow leopard cubs were born June 16 at Chicago's Brookfield Zoo. Watch a video of the two adorable newborns!
Feathered fossils examined by Brown University researchers were found to hold vital pigment information about a bird-like dinosaur that died 150 million years ago.
Large dust storms carry valuable particles eastward to the Pacific Ocean for phytoplankton to feed on. Since this species naturally combats climate change, varying storm deposits could have a detrimental effect.
Researchers recently discovered the true potential of Goffin cockatoo's cognitive capabilities. When presented with two choices, only one of which earned a reward, the birds successfully learned to "choose wisely."
In Nevada, a young female bear was recently captured and then euthanized in the interest of public safety, according to the Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW). This marks the second Nevada bear killing in just a week - an unprecedented record that hints how local bear populations may be learning some bad habits.
Temperate forests face many threats posed by climate change. They are being stressed by hotter, drier air temperature that overheat their leaves and steal all their moisture.
Findings from a study involving the mating habits of female túngara frogs supports the idea that irrationality as the result of being presented with too many choices may have deep biological roots – in humans as well.
For a change, researches examined beach sand instead of beach water and found a surprising amount of pathogens that endanger beach goers. Here's what regulartors should be doing in light of these findings.
