Ants are pretty clever insects, with researchers recently finding that certain species can even double their survival rate using impressive jaw jumps.
As greenhouse gas levels hit record highs and summer temperatures reach their warmest ever, scientists are frantically working to find ways of reducing the amount of carbon dioxide that enters the atmosphere. But now, new research shows that we may be able to rely - at least in part - on nature alone, which has its own methods for removing atmospheric carbon. This includes rivers, which reportedly are crucial in regulating the global carbon cycle.
It has long been a mystery to astronomers as to how galaxies die and what kills them exactly. Now, a new study has found that most galaxies quite literally strangle to death.
Well, not yet, but that is the direction that scientists are headed. "Cloudy for the morning, turning to clear with scorching heat in the afternoon," may soon apply not just to typical late-summer days on Earth, but also to planets located outside our solar system, according to a new study.
US honeybee populations continue to suffer - the reason for which still eludes scientists - as new research has revealed that their numbers have dropped more than 40 percent during the year spanning April 2014 to April 2015.
As scientists across the nation worry over the issue of antibiotic resistance, which seems to have us utterly surrounded, new research has revealed that infant antibiotic use is linked to various diseases later in adulthood.
It's no secret that fracking has been associated with earthquakes, contaminated groundwater and increasing levels of toxic radon, but now researchers are adding air quality and human health to the list.
With spring projected to be shorter than ever this year, summer is fast approaching, and that means it's about time to lather up on sunscreen. And now that scientists have discovered that fish can produce their own sunscreen, it has inspired them to make the product for humans.
It seems that even baboons form their own cliques, but new research shows that this can limit learning among the group.
One of Antarctica's largest ice shelves is thinning from above and below, helping scientists finally understand just what exactly is causing this rapid ice melt, according to new research.
The Mediterranean diet has been associated with lower heart disease risk and delaying diabetes, and now new research says that it may also improve brain function.
With summer nearly a month away, there's a reason everyone is anticipating its arrival. The sun is always shining, school's out, you lay on the beach and tan, and you just feel better. Well, the latter may be because people are generally healthier in the summer.
Scientists are increasingly worried for the Earth's forests as climate change stresses out plants with warming temperatures, affecting their growth and development. But new research may offer hope, as trees apparently cope by using less water with more carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in the air.
Climate change is forcing all sorts of species to change their ways, and now new research shows that when it comes to water fleas, they are using genetics to adapt to climate change.
