Climate change experts from Princeton and Penn State University are urging policymakers and scientists to become more active in collaborating to better prepare the international community for rising sea levels.
Researchers from Princeton University have discovered a way to improve the light harvesting rates of the cryptophyte algae Chroomonas mesostigmatica: quantum coherence.
Based on Darwin's Theory of Evolution, humans have taken thousands of years to evolve from primates. However, one of the primary questions in many people's minds is why monkeys, apes, and other species with the same ancestors as humans did not develop the ability to speak?
Researchers in the field of neural networks have taken the realm of advanced computing another step further. It appears that scientists are now able to unveil the first photonic neural network capable of using light to conduct superfast computing.
The 2016 Nobel Prize in physics was awarded to three scientists who studied the unexplored bizarre properties of matter in unusual states.
New 3D recordings of neural activity in a nematode shed light on how neurons coordinate action and perception in animals.
Small talk may be an evolutionary way to establish closeness, and we may have inherited it from the primates. A recent study looks at the way lemurs call out to certain known other lemurs to maintain closeness.
Army ants link up to create living bridges use to overcome gaps and obstacles they encounter along forest floors. These structures were thought to be static, but a study featuring time-lapse film has revealed that they are highly dynamic and responsive.
With heavier rainfall sweeping through the African savanna, one would expect to see more thriving populations of trees. However, it turns out trees' deep roots are actually disadvantageous and don't allow the plants to suck up abundant water resources.
According to new models, storm surges are expected to increase significantly in areas that aren't usually susceptible to tropical storms. Researchers call these cyclones Gray Swans, and believe that as climate change increase, so does the possibility of these potentially devastating storms.
New research looks at carbon-poor soil and the bacteria within it that would likely eat methane, even as temperatures in the Arctic rise.
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.
