Researchers have now discovered a new corneal layer in the human eye. The discovery could help thousands of people who suffer from diseases that affect the cornea.
By analyzing the height of growing infants rather than body-mass index, researchers say they are able to accurately predict obesity later in life.
An international team of researchers has now sequenced the genome of a duck. The genome study is expected to help in the fight against avian influenza or "bird flu".
From toddlers to bonobos and chimps, almost all simian primates make use of gestures to communicate.
Researchers at Washington State University announced plans to open a “bee sperm bank” as well as employ genetic cross-breeding methods in order to produce a super bee they hope will not succumb to colony collapse disorder.
Researchers have now uncovered a strange sexual behavior of the southern bottletail squid. The females of this species eat some of the male's ejaculations before having sex. Researchers say that this behavior might help the smaller females get ready to have sex.
Researchers at the University of Florida have captured a single butterfly of a very rare butterfly species and according to them, this female could help revive the lost species.
The declining population of songbirds might be due to their inability to keep up with the changes in spring timings, says a new study. The late arrival at feeding grounds is preventing the birds from getting the food needed to help them become breeders.
A new report published Monday revealed that early humans' diet started diverging from apes' at about 3.5 million years ago, about 1 million years earlier than previously thought.
Researchers at North Carolina State University have launched a search for crooked cicadas. And by crooked they mean with one wing slightly shorter, or with a wing containing an odd number of veins, or a little leg segment that's not quite right length.
Cicadas may be unpopular with the masses, but the U.S. Navy has spent the last several years studying the small bug and its ability to emit noises that far outweigh their small size.
Climate change is linked with the disappearance of native fish in California. Researchers say that fishes such as salmon will be extinct in the region in the next 100 years, and that other non-native fish will take their place.
Researchers have found a new way to assess the bird population in the Amazon. Their study shows that currently, there are many bird species that have severe habitat loss but aren't yet listed as threatened species.
The loud croaking of the Cuban tree frog (Osteopilus septentrionalis) can disrupt communication of other frogs in the area, a new study has found. Cuban tree frogs are an invasive species in Florida and have threatened the native frog population ever since their arrival during the 1920s.
Mermaid documentaries prove to be just a popular to audiences, even if they are hoaxes. Animal Planet debuted Mermaids: The New Evidence on Sunday, May 26, which follows up last year's "documentary," Mermaids: The Body Found.
