A large stain that is spreading in one part of Lake Erie may have its source in a 1937 shipwreck's fuel load. The Coast Guard and others are investigating.
African elephants are the leading cause behind the tree-density loss in Kruger National Park. A new study sheds light on how conservationists can maintain sustainable preserves while reducing the effects of the growing number of tree-eating elephants.
A new house design runs on solar, breeze-collection, rainwater, and the ability to raise tilapia and an aquaponic garden indoors.
Vines are becoming increasingly abundant in tropical forests as a result of climate change and severe seasonal drought and their rapid growth is harming trees and impacting carbon storage, a new study has revealed.
Toxic stormwater has been linked to the death of coho salmon along the U.S. West Coast. Now, using a simply filtration system, researchers may be able to save them from extinction.
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.
Forests are often depended upon to capture and store carbon emissions. However, a new study shows that current models drastically overestimate their ability to capture carbon.
Protected areas in Indonesia have reduced mangrove habitat loss. According to a Duke University study, this also prevented significant amounts of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere.
Land-sharing was found to be counterproductive for retaining biodiversity. A recent study suggests that leaving some land completely untouched, while increasing farming practice solely in other areas, will benefit the evolutionary diversity of bird species.
In addition to the raging wildfires, the Pacific Northwest lowlands are experiencing devastation in mountain pond habitats as a result of climate change. According to recent forecast models, this just may be new norm that amphibians have to get used to.
University of New Hampshire researchers discovered that crop rotation could combat the stress that soils experience with increased agriculture.
Staph is a "super bug" that, before now, couldn't be stopped. It includes Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and other forms.
While certain stink bugs have always created a problem for soybean farmers, the redbanded sink bug is present in very high numbers and is becoming resistant to common insecticides.
Tropical forests in the Amazon, home to roughly 2,000 species of plants, birds, beetles, ants and bees are being invaded by human activities such as logging. Researchers have found that habitats can be conserved by a wide network of forest areas.
