Scientists discovered ancient fossils that suggest humans may have originated in Europe, not Africa.
Warning! A new study reveals that much of the Mediterranean region could dry up and its forests could be replaced with deserts as global warming continues. The cities of Seville and Lisbon would be smack in the middle of a desert by the end of the century.
The lionfish is a species alien to the Mediterranean Sea, but an increase in sightings has signaled the start of a lionfish invasion. Climate change resulting in warmer water has opened the door to the lionfish threat.
A new study of tectonic plates and historical evidence of earthquakes in the eastern Mediterranean shows that forceful seismic activity was very plentiful in the past and will likely return.
European researchers modeled how a tsunami would impact the Eastern Mediterranean, by simulating earthquake conditions that would move either the sea bed or the water surface.
As we look at which marine species will be resilient to climate change, we might want to look at marine worms near a volcanic vent in the Mediterranean. They've changed their behavior in raising young, researchers say.
Starfish have something in common with flatworms.
The Mediterranean diet has been associated with lower heart disease risk and delaying diabetes, and now new research says that it may also improve brain function.
A new diet, appropriately known by the acronym MIND, could significantly lower a person's risk of developing Alzheimer's disease (AD), according to new research.
Bottlenose dolphins are iconic sea creatures, with thousands of vacationers flocking to the Mediterranean's clear waters to watch playful pods in action each year. Now, however, it has been revealed that these dolphins would not be found there thousands of years ago, making them relatively new settlers to the biblical "Great" or "Middle Sea."
A diet rich in olive oil, fish and whole grains, classically known as the Mediterranean diet, may help delay diabetes rather than simply cutting out fats, according to a follow-up analysis.
