A New synthetic anti-cancer vaccine has yielded positive results for Researchers at the Moffitt Cancer Center, effectively killing human papillomavirus-derived cancer, a virus linked to cervical cancers among others when given to mice.
According to a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, conducted by researchers at the University of Irvine, California, extensive pockets of Carbon in U.S. forest soils could be released by rising global temperatures.
Mother Gorillas use "baby talk" when addressing their young, according to a new study pubsihed in the American Journal of Primatology.
Jupiter's Europa May Hold Life Similar to the Microorgismisms Arctic in a fjord in Canada
A new study suggests that the rhinoceros beetles depend on insulin levels for the growth of their horns.
Aging termites carry suicide packs to keep off attackers, according to a new study published in the journal Science.
Scientists have discovered what might be the oldest grasslands by studying two ancient South American rodent fossils
While NASA uses measurements from planetary orbits and Kepler's Law to predict the formation or discovery of new stars and planets, biologists can analyze extrinsic factors and intrinsic traits that can lead to the evolution and establishment of a new species.
Researchers from the Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW) and Wageningen University (WUR) discovered that insects can use plants as telephones to communicate with other bugs. Additionally, using those same plants insects are able to leave "voicemail" messages in the soil, via their effects on soil fungi.
The inner ear may hold the key to ancient primate behavior, according to researchers from Pennsylvania State University.
Greenland's ice sheets are melting faster than the natural process, according to NASA.
Global warming has even forced worms to make adjustments. A group of French earthworms have migrated to Ireland owing to the rise in global temperatures, according to a new study published in the RoyalSociety Journal Biology Letters.
The population of Australia's feral camel has dropped by a quarter, but still remains the world's largest wild herd, according to a survey by the Australian Feral Camel Management Project (AFCMP).
At least 79 new species of sharks have been discovered by the scientists in South Carolina. Researchers at the Hollings Marine Laboratory at Fort Johnson on Charleston Harbor studied the DNA by allowing the genes to stick to the molecules. This way the researchers were able to compare the genetic coding of the 79 new species with that of the other species. They found that the newly discovered sharks are different from others and called them the "cryptic" species.
