Humans have been found to stray from the tradition food web hierarchy and hunt or fish at rates with which wildlife populations cannot keep up.
Researchers examined various snowpacks in the Sierra Nevada region in order to get a better understanding of how climate change is affecting subsurface water content levels.
Since a plant's growth and developement is often affected by the environment the grown in, researchers examined exactly what conditions they were most vulnerable to, in order to develope management solutions to combat their decline.
Researchers studied North American bears over the course of a couple months, while flying drones overhead to see how bears would respond.
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.
Parasitic "vampire" plants may get a bad rep from their name, but new research shows that they aren't so bad, after all, and that they could actually benefit the abundance and diversity of vegetation and animal life around them.
Fine particulate air pollution may be linked to an increased risk of developing childhood autism, according to a new study.
It's no secret that fracking has been associated with earthquakes, contaminated groundwater and increasing levels of toxic radon, but now researchers are adding air quality and human health to the list.
Oil and gas development, though it has met our demanding energy needs, also transforms landscapes, impacting both the environment and wildlife, new research says.
No, I'm not talking about 200 years from present day. But new research has shown evidence of a 200-year lag between climate events in Greenland and Antarctica during the last ice age, and it could possibly help shed light on the consequences of climate change in the future.
High elevation environments such as mountains may be warming much faster than previously thought, according to new research.
"Flameproof" is not usually a word that you would use to describe a bird, and yet that's exactly the type of falcons and hawks that Canadian researchers have discovered recently in Vancouver, new research shows.
When you're eating a juicy hamburger, you would hardly think that you are affecting the health of the planet - but according to the federal government, you are. An advisory panel of nutritionists and researchers are advising in a new report that Americans eat less meat in order to save the environment.
We not only have to worry about extreme weather including insane megadroughts and more tornadoes with climate change, but now new research shows increased infectious diseases are also in our future.
