A jellyfish-like colony of marine species uses a method similar to jet propulsion to move as a whole.
Researchers recently discovered an ancient sea predator in a fossil-rich site in Iowa. They named the new species after a Greek warship.
Insect-eating Balkan green lizards have new digestive systems that allow for varied food consumption. Researchers believe this is a result of less rainfall affecting their food supply.
A new giant file clam species was found off the coast of Canada. While the first sighting of this species was over 30 years ago, recent technology has finally allowed scientists to distinguish them as their own.
Feathered fossils examined by Brown University researchers were found to hold vital pigment information about a bird-like dinosaur that died 150 million years ago.
Large dust storms carry valuable particles eastward to the Pacific Ocean for phytoplankton to feed on. Since this species naturally combats climate change, varying storm deposits could have a detrimental effect.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Jellyfish provide easy access to hunting grounds for some sea birds, since they attract small fish to hang around their tentacles in exchange for plankton.
Penguin fossils found in Antarctica reveal valuable information about the bird's unique adaptations. While they have evolved as flightless birds, they have many interesting traits that allow them to fly through water.
