Our modern, more sedentary lifestyles have not only made humans heavier, but also noticeably lighter than our hunter-gatherer ancestors - at least in the bones.
Pesticide use, while it's been tied to a decline in honeybee populations and other pollinators, now may also threaten global freshwater biodiversity, according to new research.
The world is getting warmer, at least on a global scale, and that means increasing difficulties for farmers who grow temperamental crops like wheat and, surprisingly, even beans. Now new research has revealed that there are some beans that can take the heat, and new breeding programs may be launched to make them the new face of the "meat of the poor."
You may have heard that regardless of what is causing climate change (be it natural, man-driven, or both) humanity must act now if there is any hope of preventing the problems that it will cause for society and the natural world alike in the future. However, some researchers are now making the argument that even adapting to our warming world will bring new and unconsidered problems.
