According to scientists at UNSW and the Australian National University, some fishes have learned to live outside their usual habitat in a bid to stay safe and escape their predators.
Urbanization has a very significant effect on evolution, leading to change in functioning ecosystems.
Despite the consequences of modern human civilization, nature still finds a way to adapt and survive. A team of researchers from the University of California, Davis has found that the Atlantic Killfish has evolved to adapt to estuaries containing toxic polluted waters.
A new study from the University of Pennsylvania reveals that tails of four-limbed animals and fish evolved separately and are two different structures. The new study breaks the long-held recapitulation theory.

In 2011, ecologist Mark Browne discovered that microplastics from the fibers of our clothes are flown unknowingly to oceans, killing and polluting ecosystems. Now, Patagonia, one of the biggest synthetic clothes producers, admits that there's indeed a problem.
Being one of the culprits of global warming and climate change, carbon dioxide is again creating another strain of problem to the marine ecosystem, specifically to the fish. But this time, it's not about warming the seas but impairing their sense that can eventually lead them swimming toward their predators.
