Indian Mynas are also carrying exotic strands of avian malaria which is threatening native wildlife.
Rutgers University researchers recommend releasing captive populations of Borneo orangutans back into their natural habitats. Doing so could help the endangered animals rebound.
Using a new, specialized net, a team of researchers recently collected polar cod (Boreogadus saida) from their icy homes in order to better understand the fishes' large-scale distribution and origin as well as the predators that feed on them.
Cape Restio shrubs produce large, dark nuts that mimic antelope droppings and trick dung beetles into planting them, ultimately helping the shrubs become more widespread.
Another whales has washed up on the shore of a wildlife refuge in the Bay Area. This time, the whale appears to be badly decomposed.
People are advised to eat increased amounts of seafood, bur almost half of it is wasted each year. Since overfishing, pollution and climate change are already impacting fish populations, scientists are examining ways to reduce waste in order to sustain future demands.
Researchers excavating ancient salmon chum bones from the Upward Sun River site in Alaska have found that Ice Age humans had a broader diet than previously surmised and used specialized tools to fish.
Pre-reptile Bunostegos akokanensis is the earliest known creature to stand upright on all four legs. This species was thought to be a sprawler, but researchers from Brown University found that it had shoulders extending directly underneath its body instead of out to the sides.
Researchers collected small chum salmon from Elliot Bay and restored beaches along the coast of Seattle in order to better understand how urbanized shorelines affect salmon eating habits. It turns out restored beaches provide the young fish with a buffet of small crustaceans that help them survive and grow into adulthood.
In order to meet the growing population's increasing food demand, nutritional science strategies need to be revamped. Scientists recently reported expected changes to be made within the next five years.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration tagged a female hammerhead shark two months ago. With the use of satellite-tracking tag, the researchers observed the shark swimming unexpectedly far for food.
Migrating birds need to take the occasional break during their long migrations. Researchers recently examined how they choose where to rest. Surprisingly, it isn't at a food court on the Delaware-Maryland border.
Harvard researchers examined how downstream effects of flooding for hydroelectric development would affect local communities in this area. They found that increased toxins could devastate food supplies.
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.
