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.
Mountaintop mining is making the Appalachians smaller. Duke University recently led a study on this and the effects on water quality in the Central Appalachians.
A recent study suggests the plight of the commen gray treefrog may help scientists measure the impact of climate change and better assess the health of a given ecosystem.
Researcher have for the first time explored the inner workings of Australian wombat warrens, or interconnected burrows, in hopes of understanding the rather elusive animals and their conservation status.
Researchers have become increasingly concerned about invasive and poisonous Asian toads in Madagascar. A new report warns that the country must act quickly to eradicate the species before it establishes itself further.

A critically endangered population of killer whales in the Pacific Northwest may be encountering more noise pollution than in the past. A recent study suggests large passing oil tankers emit sounds at frequencies killer whales use to communicate and echolocate. Ultimately, researchers say, this could impede their ability to find food they need to survive.
