Using a water-resistant sponge material that absorbs contaminants, designers have created a 3D-printed bathing suit that cleans the water as you swim.
Ants that called Europe their home 45 to 10 million years ago were actually more similar to modern-day ants now living in South East Asia than they are to their European cousins.
Aquaponic garden systems use fish feces as natural fertilizers. In return, the plants grow faster and naturally filter the water before returning it to the fish. This system ensures environmental sustainability.
A seal riding atop a humpback whale – like this photo from Eden, New South Wales, shows illustrates an extremely rare occurence but other animals routinely help each other out.
Researchers from Dartmouth College studied Arctic mosquitoes in western Greenland in order to better understand the impact climate change has on their growth, development and ability to escape predation.
Even entomologists don't really like mosquitoes, it turns out. Also, they're attracted to your carbon, which sounds evil. More info on their liking for beer and other chemicals, and how the planet might be affected by their removal.
Florida has become home to many invasive species that are threatening the Everglades. When non-native species establish themselves, it is harder to remove them. This puts an ecosystem's biodiversity at risk.
Scientists recently found an unexpected species of tree-dwelling funnel-web spiders in Australia's Booderee National Park. This suggests that the area's biodiversity needs be more thoroughly researched.
Environmental changes large or small can have a significant impact, according to a recent study. This may help ecologists better understand a community's response to climate change.
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.
New research reveals the percentage of plastic inside the average seabird.
Climate change and habitat loss are two major threats posed to animal species worldwide. And especially with global temperatures rising in recent decades (2014 was the hottest year yet), scientists are now concerned more than ever with the survival of Earth's animals. However, recent research suggests that they are more flexible than you think.
The Serengeti National Park has long been one of the world's most iconic ecosystems, home to giraffes and many other animals, and now new research shows that it is disappearing.
Savannahs, though they are not jam-packed with carbon-absorbing trees, nonetheless help to slow down climate change, according to a new study.
