A new study reveals that human-induced climate change, which results in temperature changes worldwide, have drastically affected the genes and ecosystems of lifeforms on Earth.
Infestation of pests are usually observed on monoculture or farm fields growing only one type of crop. Barely does this happen on fields with a variety of plants but this is usually left unconsidered through the years. Now, scientists have found another key factor on how diversity plays crucial role in preventing pestilences.
If you are a "Star Trek" fan, or at least knows a bit about this movie, for sure, you'd identify what a tricorder is. Now, instead of a sci-fi gadget, experts have created a tricorder-like technology to halt GMOs' risk to nearby ecosystem.

Bed bugs generally prefer hiding spots that are red or black, but their preferences change according to age, sex, and other factors
Researchers have for the first time modeled how locusts behave in swarms. Their findings may ultimately help disrupt swarms and curb the environmental devastation of a locust invasion.
Invasive snowshoe hares were introduced to Maine's Bay of Fundy Islands in 1959 and rapidly became widespread pests that eliminated most trees from the landscape. After several attempts and a bit of determination, the last invasive rabbit was removed in 2007. Since then the islands' natural landscape has returned to normal.
In recent days, as temperatures increased in Minnesota and Wisconsin, millions of ladybugs crept out from hidden crevices to plague homeowners. Although these tiny insects were once considered cute, their huge swarms are causing more people to view them as mere pests.
Pests don't appear to be as fearless in their pursuit for food as we might think. The Asian citrus psyllid (ACP), an invasive pest that recently found its way into Florida and Puerto Rican citrus farms, seems to avoid heights, according to new research, offering some new clues about the voracious insect's vulnerabilities.
