United States citizens can travel to more than half of the world’s nations without a visa, European countries included.
Europe’s last ancient forest located in Poland is now on its “last stand” as loggers prepare to clear-cut trees.
The Zika virus is expected to reach parts of Europe in late spring and summer, health officials warn.
Have you ever heard of floating gold? We'll apparently, in the beaches in Europe, they do exist. But not in a shiny, glittery form, instead they look like a rock which smells, too. It's a stone secreted by sperm whales and are used in making perfumes. It is called "whale vomit" and it is extremely rare. It is considered valuable because a block of it can cost up to $70,000. But authorities fear that if people decided to harvest whale's vomit, it might further worsen the population drop of the endangered sperm whales.
A species of vesper bat has largely expanded its range across Europe since the 1980s. Researchers say climate change is likely the cause.
Following rampant deforestation in Europe, conservationists planted fast-growing, commercially valuable conifer trees, rather than native broadleaved trees. It turns out this type of forest management has accelerated climate change.
An ancient rabbit ancestor thought to exist only in Europe was recently found in present-day Siberia. The dsicovery spotlights the evolution of the species as well as how landmasses were shifting 14 million years ago during the Miocene era.
Storks and other European birds have been cutting their annual migrations to Africa short by stopping to feed at nearby landfills. Researchers say consuming "junk food" is unhealthy, and when the birds alter their travel plans they disrupt ecosystems both at home and at their winter destinations.
Following some careful ancient DNA detective work, researchers believe they have tracked down the origin of Phytophthora infestans, which is the pathogen responsible for the 19th century Irish potato famine.
Fossilized sediments from a prehistoric lake were recently found in Scandinavia and shed light on what really happened at the end of the last Ice Age.
Two new studies say that monitoring biodiversity of farmland in Europe could be affordable and relatively easy.
While bats in Europe are relatively unaffected by white-nose syndrome, the disease has emptied many North American caves of their bat populations. A recent study has found it in Chinese caves too.
Iberian lynx fossils dating to 1.6 million years ago were recently recovered from a cave in Barcelona, Spain. It's the oldest lynx specimen ever found, suggesting the species arrived in the area 500,000 years earlier than originally estimated.
Some lizards may not be able to cope with future climate change temperatures, say researchers from the University of Exeter. Ultimately, they may have to adopt the motto "live fast and die young."
New research from the University College Dublin shows Cows were domesticated in stages and far more selectively than previous research indicated. DNA analysis indicates ancient British farmers restocked their domesticated herds with still-wild ox specimens called aurochs that grazed throughout areas of Europe, Asia and North Africa.
