Sterilizing farmed salmon is a good way to conserve wild salmon gene pool, researchers have said.
Few pulses of bright light a day could help increase antioxidant production in space plants, a new study has found. Researchers say that the nutrient-rich plants could protect astronauts from eye damage during long space flights.
Researchers have identified a unique mechanism that is unexpectedly effective at improving decision response accuracy. Decision making accuracy can be improved by waiting even just a fraction of a second. Waiting as little as 50 to 100 milliseconds allows the brain to focus on more pertinent information rather than extraneous matters.
Researchers from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and the University of Michigan are reporting the first hard evidence that malaria creeps to higher elevations during warmer years and falls back down to lower altitudes when temperatures cool.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said Friday that it is initiating a process under a rarely-used Clean Water Act to protect salmon fisheries in Bristol Bay, Alaska, from the proposed Pebble Mine.
Citrus-scented ingredient in the goat odor doesn't just attract female goats, but also turns on their reproduction systems, a new study has reported.
Researchers have found cheese dating back to 1615 B.C., which is possibly the world's oldest cheese. The lactose-free, low cost cheese was found along Chinese mummies buried in the ancient cemetery in the Taklimakan Desert.
Dental calculus, or tartar, present in 1000-year-old skeleton has helped researchers find "microbial Pompeii."
While playing spontaneous, improvisational music, the brains of jazz musicians showed activation in areas of the brain traditionally associated with spoken language and syntax, which helps us to understand the construction of phrases and sentences. According to a new study by researchers from Johns Hopkins, this brain activation also shuts down brain areas linked to semantics, which process the meaning of spoken language.
University of Calgary paleontologists recently found a 70-million-year old skull of a horned dinosaur.
Biologists said Thursday that they have rescued a one-week old panther kitten at the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge in Collier County.
Breaking the rules by lying about performance on a task may increase creativity on a later task by making people feel freer from convention, according to a new study.
Researchers have visualized the inactive chromosomes behind Calico cats' funky fur-color pattern. The research is expected to better our understanding of human DNA.
Researchers found definite evidence of the habitat of the early ape Proconsul, an extinct genus that existed from 23 to 25 million years ago, on Rusinga Island, Kenya. The finding sheds light on the interaction between habitat preference and diversification of the early ape-human lineage.
Most theories explaining the origins of life on Earth revolve around oxygen. Complex life was thought to have evolved around 630 to 635 million years ago, the same time that atmospheric levels of oxygen began to rise. However, a new study of a common sea sponge from Kerteminde Fjord in Denmark challenges this view.
