People residing in a place with warm and humid conditions commonly have wider noses, while those that live in cold and dry locations have narrower nose.
A new study revealed that coral reef fish that are unable to adapt to the warming ocean are forced to relocate to cooler parts of the ocean.
Fruit flies, despite their tiny size and annoying sound, could probably save the entire planet from the threat of climate change.
The ability to learn is linked to living things with a nervous system, made possible with the presence of nerves and neurons, but a recent study shows that other living organisms are also capable of learning even without a brain.
More moose are loose and on the move as they invade previously uninhabitable areas of the Alaskan tundra, according to a new study that revealed how global warming continues to change our ecosystem.
It seems like living in the urban jungle has given birds street smarts, too, according to researchers from the McGill University in Quebec, Canada.
Researchers found domestic dogs can tell the difference between a threatening and pleasant facial expression by gazing into one's eyes. This is similar to a human's social gazing behavior.
Male wild guinea pigs pass down their ability to adjust to environmental changes to their sons. Researchers suggest future generations could benefit from this "epigenetic information" as climate change causes global temperatures to rise.
Some insect larvae can twitch and whip inside their cocoons in order to "jump" to shadier, or more favorable, environments. Researchers say this is a unique survival technique only seen in select wasp species.
By examining the hind and forelimbs of a tiger salamanders, researchers have revealed how they may have transitioned from life at sea to life on land.
Mussels secrete proteins from their feet that allow them to cling to rocks in the face of powerful waves. By mimicking this technique, researchers have created a simple synthetic material that can prime and fuse two surfaces underwater.
Even corals adapted to warmer waters, such as those living along reefs in Kimberly Australia, are particularly vulnerable to climate change and increased rates of bleaching.
A fossil species of baleen whales sheds new light on the transition from ancient toothed whales to modern baleen whales.
Using a recently unearthed 90 million-year-old fossilized reptile skull, researchers reveal new insight regarding how snakes lost their limbs. It turns out the evolutionary characteristic of burrowing plays a key role.
