Researchers have found and identified for new species of algae in Hawaii. However, the specimens were found at unexpected depths and closely resemble those found in much shallower waters.
Using a specialized IQ test, researchers examined the "general intelligence" of border collies. Since dogs and people have a lot in common, researchers suggest their findings could lead to improved diagnosis and treatment of human disorders, such as dementia.
From giant water bugs to pythons and leeches, "Wild Things" star Dominic Monaghan goes on quite the adventure in Vietnam this week.
Researchers have identified why so many sperm whales washed up on beaches in the North Sea. It turns out they were hunting for squid in shallow waters.
Researchers recently unearthed two new plankton-eating fossil fish species, of the genus called Rhinconichthys. This discovery triples the number of known species.
It turns out that wolves, jackals and domestic dogs have different howling dialects or "vocal fingerprints." Researchers say this may help them better identify species, and therefore their conservation status.
Bears pack on fat when preparing to hibernate each winter. To avoid the health risks often associated with human obesity, the bears have specialized gut microbiota that takes in more energy from food in the summer.
Researchers suggest that half of wild animal attacks could be avoided if humans were properly informed on how to act in such encounters. Their study also includes a series of basic rules that should be followed when visiting an animal's known habitat.
Footage of the only known wild jaguar in the U.S. was recently released by the Center for Biological Diversity. The big cat can be seen alive and well, lurking through wooded areas and across a mountain creek. However, researchers warn the animal's habitat is threatened by a proposed mining site.
Researchers have discovered that the vast majority of infected hives can be traced back to one source -- the European honeybee, which is consistenly traded and imported to North America.
A recent study suggests the plight of the commen gray treefrog may help scientists measure the impact of climate change and better assess the health of a given ecosystem.
Researchers have recently unearthed fossils of an extinct wildebeest-like creature named Rusingoryx that boasted a strange nasal structure similar to that of duck-billed dinosaurs.
Pink deep-sea worms previously represented by only a single species have puzzled biologists for nearly six decades. However, four new worms recently spotted near California and Mexico have helped scientists properly place the creatures along the evolutionary tree of life.
Fossils belonging to a prehistoric butterfly-like species were recently found in China and eastern Kazakhstan. This insect, researchers say, predates modern butterflies by about 40 million years and is an example of convergent evolution.
