European rollers are facing deforestation in Europe and their yearly winter migration to Africa is getting tougher each year. Now researchers have identified key areas that will help conservationists better protect the threatened species.
Early human teeth found in a cave in southern China suggest that humans migrated to Asia much earlier than previously thought, and long before they made their way to Europe. This changes our knowledge of early human distribution.
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.
An invasive species of moth known as the tomato leafminer is damaging tomato crops globally. It hasn't made its way to the U.S. yet but Virginia Tech researchers have issued recommendations on how to prevent future destruction.
When wildlife experts discuss climate change, they usually are talking about the worrying decline of one species or another. This, however, isn't the case for European wild boars. New research has found that these pigs have enjoyed significant population growth starting more than three decades ago, and they have a warming world to thank for it.
In many parts of the world, education is the #1 factor associated with awareness of climate change. But there are regional distinctions, and countries vary in terms of why people do or don't know the word and phenomenon. More here from a global poll done by researchers from Yale, Columbia, Utah State, Princeton, U-Mass-Amherst, and Academica Sinica in Taiwan.
Germany is switching 62 former military bases to nature preserves, increasing the country's nature land by one quarter.
New research shows that England and Northern Europe in particular are at risk of major sea level rise in the future – more so than previously thought.
The Bronze Age was a significant era in Earth's early history, but how did it change Europe? New DNA analyses from the bones of early Europeans have attempted to answer just that question, showing that the demographic structure of present-day Europe and Asia is the result of widespread population migrations, and subsequent cultural changes that occurred during the Bronze Age.
It's allergy season, and as if everyone wasn't sneezing and wheezing enough, now new research says that allergy attacks could increase with climate change as the notorious ragweed pollen spreads.
With heatwaves in Europe expected to be 10 times as likely due to climate change, it should come as no surprise that England in particular will soon see record-breaking warm years.
A team of scientists has tracked the invasion history of monk parakeets and discovered some interesting findings.
We've unfortunately got some bad news for bee lovers. Remember those harmful pesticides that are supposedly keeping our honeybees down? Well, it turns out they adversely affect other wild bee populations too - a revelation that may affect a historic EU decision slated for December.
Unlike a great many other first-world environmental agencies, the UK's Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) remains fairly uncertain about neonicotinoids, a class of pesticides commonly called "neonics." Officials frequently cite one large-scale study in particular to argue that these chemicals are mostly harmless. Now, however, one researcher has set out to tell DEFRA that they've been wrongly interpreting that key study for the last two years.
Europe is home to nearly 2,000 bee species, and yet a stunning 10 percent of them are currently facing the threat of extinction, with another 50-or-so species expected to face the same threat in the near future. This is even as pollinator populations around the world, consisting primarily of bees and butterflies, continue to dramatically decline - a significant worry for conservationists and agricultural experts alike.
