A new study on a troop of zoo baboons has shown that even monkeys can understand numbers, and that this numerical ability is innate and not a learnt one. The study challenges the idea that only humans have a concept of mathematics.
Louisiana’s Senate Bill 26 was tabled on a 3-2 vote in the Senate Committee on Education on May 1, effectively killing the bill in committee, according to New Orleans' The Times-Picayune.
Honey bees, particularly the commercial ones, have a strange condition where some worker bees simply go away from the colony, never to return. The condition is called Colony Collapse Disorder, and now researchers have found that pests, pesticides and pathogens are associated with the condition.
A team of researchers has found evidence of cannibalism in the historic Jamestown. Researchers said that the colonists of the town ate a teenage girl during the winter of 1609–1610, often called as the "starving time". The conclusion comes after a detailed study of a new fossil recovered from the site.
A study from University of Missouri debunks the idea that a fossil found in 2002 belonged to the last ancestor of modern-day great apes that include chimpanzees, orangutans, bonobos, gorillas and humans. Instead, researchers of the new study argue that Pierolapithecus catalaunicus (that lived about 11.9 million years back) might have lived at a time when the great apes were evolving, but hadn't yet diversified into various species.
Sand tiger sharks bring a whole new meaning to “sibling rivalry,” what with the first embryos in each of the paired uteri consuming all of their smaller siblings during gestation - a practice that enables them to reach such a large size at birth that they face few predators.
Researchers have now found how cicadas keep their wings clean. The study, researchers said, will help design new type of self-cleaning materials.
Researchers have now found that dinosaur-like creatures were living in Tanzania and Zambia before they were found anywhere else on the Earth. These ancestors of dinosaurs lived in the mid-Triassic period.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) issued a notice warning Bay County residents to be on the lookout for a 30-pound black and white lizard on the loose.

Australia was first populated by about 1,000 to 3,000 people, a new study found. The population of the entire continent decreased during the Ice Age and reached a stable population of about 1.2 million people only a few centuries back, reports AFP.
