A University of Delaware study shows that non-native plants have an impact on the diversity of insect populations. Their study sheds light on how homeowners are impacting local insect communities when planting their gardens and flower beds.
Orchids are a complicated and diverse group of flowering plants that are able to live in a wide range of ecosystems. A newly developed family tree helps explain the flower's speciation history.
Madagascar is known for its incredible biodiversity, but even so scientists were surprised to find that one species in particular that's unique to the region, called the panther chameleon, is actually 11 different species in one.
The recent discovery of ancient fossils in northern Laos suggests that early modern humans were physically quite diverse, according to a new study.
