Exposure to farm dust is linked to protection against asthma and allergies. While the benefits of growing up on a farm have been known for some time now, a new study discovered a missing link.
Scientists have discovered a thin layer of oxygen created by photosynthetic bacteria at the bottom of a Antarctic lake. This could better explain what was happening on Earth billions of years ago.
Biodiversity of areas throughout the Tibetan Plateau were found to depend heavily on the underlying soils. This leads researchers to believe that biodiversity is just as important underground as it is above ground.
Recent studies found that magnesium peroxide may be abundant in extremely oxidized mantles and cores of rocky planets outside our solar system.
Researchers recently found that building more wind turbines might actually be less efficient and not produce as much renewable energy.
A team of researchers recently mapped tree populations, finding that about 3.04 trillion trees live on our planet.
Antarctic fur seal pups listen for their certain qualities in their mother's vocal signature in order to correctly identify them in dense colonies.
Minute plastic scrubbing beads from toothpastes and creams make their way past sewage receptors and into oceans, disrupting marine ecosystems. Researchers recently learned their numbers are more sobering than we knew.
A new study found that coal ash produced from three major U.S. coal-producing basins contains highly radioactive contaminants.
Researchers discovered that by soaking and heating used coffee grounds through simple processes, the waste could instead be used to store methane.
Deep in their mud mounds, termites are doing mysterious things regarding temperature change.
A gecko's anatomy helps lizards of all sizes walk on ceilings and walls.
Researchers discovered that male seahorses can be just as nurturing during their pregnancy as female mammals.
Scientists explain how Brazilian wasp venom targets cancer cells, while leaving normal cells unharmed. With future analysis, this could have applications in medicine.
Crocodiles roamed areas of Wyoming and Canada 50 million years ago, enjoying the temperate climates. But since these areas are so far from ocean warming effects, scientists wondered how they remained habitable for large aquatic reptiles.
