The origins of the Blood Falls are finally revealed.
Marine animals are altering their diets and natural habitat range as a result of climate change. For instance, melting sea ice is opening new waters to humpback and fin whales, which could lead to increased food competition among the areas' native species.
Hippos are primarily herbivores but it turns out that they actually eat meat, too. But carnivorousness puts them at increased risk of contracting the life-threatening soil-borne disease known as anthrax.
Moose and snowshoe hares have taken a liking to the increased shrubery growth along Alaska's North Slope.
Years after the infamous Anaktuvuk River fire – the largest recorded Arctic tundra fire – researchers have found a link between wildfires in the Arctic tundra and widespread permafrost thaw.
A newly published study that looked at large-mammal Ice Age fossils found in Alaska over 20 years has conclusions about how we can help current-day Arctic large mammals.
University of Alaska Fairbanks researchers recently developed a computer program that estimates the impact climate change could have on the Antarctic ice sheet.
A new hadrosaur species, a type of duck-billed dinosaur, was excavated from Alaska. This species represents the northernmost dinosaur known to date and likely endured dark winter months and snowy conditions, researchers say.
Researchers excavating ancient salmon chum bones from the Upward Sun River site in Alaska have found that Ice Age humans had a broader diet than previously surmised and used specialized tools to fish.
An ancient fish tooth may tell scientists things about 8,800 years ago in Alaska, versus in New York City.
