Ethiopia is facing one of the worst famines - this is one of the worst in the past 50 years. Africa has always been one of the worst affected when it comes to famines and draughts.
In a 2014 survey of Morocco's island of Mogador, raptors called Eleonora's falcons were observed engaging in a what researchers called a new behaviour that ensures their offspring receive the freshest of meats: imprisoning smaller live birds before killing and feeding them to their young several days later.
Smaller hatchlings who have to compete with larger siblings for food grow up become obese adults birds, say researchers who tested starling hatchlings to determine whether competition for food after birth had a long-lasting effect.
Using nano-sized particles of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, researchers have found a way to increase the growth and antioxidant content of tomato plants. This may soften the impact population growth has on natural resources in the future.
Atlantic puffins, European turtle doves, Slavonian grebes, and pochards are now listed as "vulnerable" species on the International Union for Conservation of Nature's (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species for birds. This doubles the number of endangered U.K. birds.
Yellowstone National Park's Iconic grizzly bears may soon lose their protection under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) but not if Native American Tribes have their way.
In order to meet the growing population's increasing food demand, nutritional science strategies need to be revamped. Scientists recently reported expected changes to be made within the next five years.
Much like people living in packed cities, it may be now that animals of prey in Africa have a smaller number of offspring when living in crowded conditions. Turns out, this is affecting lions and other predators.
Researchers believe that if polar bears end up marooned on land, they could eke out a living on alternative food sources. A recent study looked at those sources.
Insect-eating Balkan green lizards have new digestive systems that allow for varied food consumption. Researchers believe this is a result of less rainfall affecting their food supply.
It's no secret that despite abundant supplies in developed worlds, a worrying number of people are still starving in the modern age. This problem may only grow worse as net populations rise and agricultural production sinks. Now, new research has shown that even deforestation could make things worse, as forests have proven themselves to be more important to global food security than previously thought.
With experts worrying that global food shortage may soon become an issue due to an unsustainable human population, they are trying to come up with a possible solution. But new research shows that we may not have to worry after all - as long as we're okay eating bacterial slime and bugs instead of a Big Mac and fries.
