Water and water vapor in the primitive atmosphere could reveal a lot about the formation and development of planets.
McCauley and his team recorded these fish near Western Australia for more than a year and identified that they are actually producing "different" choruses, like an album, at different points in time.
Bees are traditionally viewed as hardworking insects but what most people would be surprised to know is that male bumblebees leave home and fly away without looking back. Researchers from the University of Exeter have discovered that male bumblebees make no effort to remember the nest they've come from.
According to the New Journal of Physics, the idea of using hard-core mathematical artistry in any research is terrifying for many physicists. It is not because scientists generally have a hard time with it. Instead, mathematics can actually become a language barrier among scientists.
Researchers have discovered that the vast majority of infected hives can be traced back to one source -- the European honeybee, which is consistenly traded and imported to North America.
Social mammals, including humans and mongooses, may compete in groups to produce larger offspring. A new study found that this, in addition to males' vying to pass along their genes by winning antler-fighting contests and the like, may be part of the evolutionary effort to increase the survival rate of one's own offspring.
It seems obvious that camouflage helps animals survive in the wild, but it is a relatively hard thing to test in the wild. A recent study, however, confirms this long-held assumption, proving that disguising one’s body or eggs to match the environment deters predators.
Not all lizards are able to change the color of their skin to blend in with their surroundings. Therefore Aegean wall lizards, for example, camouflage by choosing rocks that best match the color of their backs, thus ensuring they are able to remain hidden from avian predators.
The Basking Shark Satellite Tagging Project opened up a new finding: The Sea of the Hebrides off the west coast of Scotland may be a hot spot for basking sharks feeding, breeding and migrating in the summer.
Promiscuous male crickets ultimately reduce their chances of having a child due to sperm competition -- as their partners will also mate with many other males.
In the face of a challenge, practice makes perfect for grey squirrels. Researchers from the University of Exeter found that squirrels were able to quickly learn which lever to either push or pull to release food from a closed box when they remained persistent.
Among the insects known as burying beetles, females are more attracted to smaller males because they are, you know, chill. That is, they're less likely to get into fights when competing for mates. Despite their increased sex appeal, however, smaller males are not necessarily better parents, researchers reveal in a new study.
New Caledonian crows were caught on camera for the first time making innovative hook foraging tools in the wild.
In learning about more than 70 marine fungi, a recent study turned up a new branch on the tree of life.
A global cooling event during the Jurassic Period was triggered by a volcanic event that altered the flow of warm waters from the equator to the North Pole Region. This caused very cold temperatures in the northern hemisphere for many millions of years.
