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.
Graduate students from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California-San Diego discovered a methane seep about 30 miles off the coast. This site is home to many unique, adaptable species, and is the first found in the region.
Three new fossil whale species were found in New Zealand. This provides valuable insight on how baleen whales evolved from their toothy ancestors.
Environmental changes large or small can have a significant impact, according to a recent study. This may help ecologists better understand a community's response to climate change.
A species of wood ants observed in the North York Moors National Park, UK, are thriving in forests where non-native trees have been planted over the past 60 years. This suggests that we could help forest-dependent species rebuild their homes.
Insect-eating Balkan green lizards have new digestive systems that allow for varied food consumption. Researchers believe this is a result of less rainfall affecting their food supply.
University of New Hampshire researchers have discovered they can use the chemical signatures found in the inner ear bones of winter flounder to help them trace the fish to their estuaries – a critical part of remedying their population decline.
Tropical songbirds have a lower adult mortality rate than temperate birds because they are raised in smaller families. This directly affects their wing growth and ability to escape from predators.
Chimpanzees studied along Uganda's western border seem to be thriving despite the forest's escalating demise.
