New mathematical model shows that time travelling is not so fictional after all.
Researchers from the University of British Columbia have discovered that the Paris Agreement's global warming target of 1.5 degrees Celsius would be the answer to increasing potential fish catch by six million metric tons each year.
Scientists point toward a neutron star 400 light-years away that may literally shake the foundation of quantum physics. When polarized, light from that specific neutron star has proven that its ultraintense magnetic field is capable of distorting empty space through a quantum mechanical effect that involves "virtual" particles in the said vacuum. This was behavior only previously seen on the atomic level.
Recent research has successfully engineered an antimicrobial peptide that can possibly kill bacteria - even those that are antibiotic resistant.
College students experiencing homesickness benefited from spending time cuddling dogs, this recent study tackles negative emotions with pets instead of drugs.
Vulnerable coastal populations will be some of the most negatively affected by climate change, changing fishing practices now will help them survive.
Grassland species that have already evolved to withstand higher levels of carbon dioxide grew poorly when transferred to a new environment with a different biodiversity make up.
Scientists create a microneedle system that can reduce pain during drug measurements and replace expensive blood draws.
A researcher at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Canada is standing up for saturated fat, emphasizing that saturated fats aren't toxic. They may actually have the ability to promote healing.
Humans may be speeding up the otherwise slow process of evolution by introducing new species to unfamiliar areas. Consequently, heightened competition leads to a loss of diversity.
A recent study by the University of British Columbia notes that only four percent of the world's ocean is within Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). In 2010, representatives of 200 nations agreed to preserve at least 10 percent of the ocean by 2020.
The 82-foot blue whale skeleton at the University of British Columbia's biodiversity museum was the subject of a 2011 Discovery Channel segment that hinted largely at terrible smells while the whale was being unearthed in eastern Canada. Recently, the skeleton received its first big cleaning.
Hummingbirds are muscling through many of their aerial performances, says a new study.
Researchers working in a bay in a lake in the Democratic Republic of Congo say they have found evidence that microbes created many of Earth's largest deposits of iron ore, simply by processing energy.
