The ancient village that's older than the wheel, Rome and the Pyramids of Giza speaks volumes on ancient North American history.
The radiation fingerprint from the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan has finally reached the US shores, specifically in the West Coast. Is it bad news for Americans?
A group of researchers have identified the remains of a strange animal that once roamed North America about 40 millions years ago. Neither a dog nor a bear, "beardogs" belong to a strange extinct species that were considered as ferocious predators in their ecosystem.
A new study revealed that the invasive European earthworms are altering the physical and chemical properties of soil in North American forests, resulting in the decline of species diversity in the forest.
New climate predictions showed that trees in boreal forest are only going to be benefited by the warming temperature for a short time and will reach its tipping point by 2050.
The newly discovered fossilized remains of a monkey found in North America has caught scientists off guard, and can possibly rewrite history books.
A possible Vikings site has been recently discovered on the island of Newfoundland, with the site dating back to nearly a thousand years, and could alter history as we know it.
A recent study suggests the plight of the commen gray treefrog may help scientists measure the impact of climate change and better assess the health of a given ecosystem.
A deadly pathogen that causes skin lesions is threatening European salamander populations and is spreading to parts of Asia, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany. A recent study highlights new conservation methods employed to ensure the deadly pathogen doesn't spread to North America, a hotspot for salamander biodiversity.
Cheetahs migrated to Africa from North America 100,000 years ago during the last Ice Age. Following their "big move," populations dwindled and incestuous breeding increased. This troubled linage has had a lasting impact on modern Cheetahs, many of which have difficulty reproducing due to a gene mutation that affects sperm development.
A new species of toothy pterosaurs named Cimoliopterus dunni sheds light on the evolution of these flying reptiles. However, its closest relatives are from England, suggesting the prehistoric animals were able to "island hop" as the North Atlantic Ocean widened during the Cretaceous.
Ceratopsian dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous period of eastern North America evolved differently when isolated from their western relatives by a division of water 66 million years ago.
The 82-foot blue whale skeleton at the University of British Columbia's biodiversity museum was the subject of a 2011 Discovery Channel segment that hinted largely at terrible smells while the whale was being unearthed in eastern Canada. Recently, the skeleton received its first big cleaning.
Iberian lynx fossils dating to 1.6 million years ago were recently recovered from a cave in Barcelona, Spain. It's the oldest lynx specimen ever found, suggesting the species arrived in the area 500,000 years earlier than originally estimated.
