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.
The Hubble Space Telescope recently captured detailed images of Twin Jet Nebula, which has recently ejected its outer layers, and illuminated them, signifying it is in its final stages of life.
University of New Hampshire researchers have discovered they can use the chemical signatures found in the inner ear bones of winter flounder to help them trace the fish to their estuaries – a critical part of remedying their population decline.
Astronomers recently discovered two supermassive black holes in the quasar known as Markarian 231, using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. This suggests that these massive black holes form from violent mergers.
Tropical songbirds have a lower adult mortality rate than temperate birds because they are raised in smaller families. This directly affects their wing growth and ability to escape from predators.
Some diamonds found in Canada's Northwest Territories contain ancient seawater, according to recent studies. While these diamonds formed through processes like the precious gems we know, they are younger and uglier.
Erosion can happen at a much fast rate when extreme weather events occur. Since sediment takes many years to accumulate, this kind of weather has the potential to cause a whole lot of years' worth of damage.
Worms' behaviors and postures were studied by scientists at the MRC’s Clinical Sciences Centre at Imperial College London in order to better understand its genes and brain activity. With further research, this method of study could be applied to humans.
New data from the Geological Society of America explains that shorelines along the Pacific Coast and northern Mexico aren't uplifting quite as fast as we previously thought.
Barley, that grain that supplies us with both cereals and beer, had a difficult genome to crack. Researchers recently decoded it, which will help farmers breed stronger crops.
Golden eagles and wind turbines can now live in harmony since researchers found less threatening, and potentially more abundant, locations for this renewable energy to be collected.
European researchers modeled how a tsunami would impact the Eastern Mediterranean, by simulating earthquake conditions that would move either the sea bed or the water surface.
