A team of scientists from Virginia Tech is working on a revolutionary way on how to use solar panels by making it flexible, turning them into everyday objects while producing renewable solar energy.
Bones from a newly discovered species of reptile that lived 212 million years ago were found in modern day New Mexico.
In a find that says something about what species can (and have) done in times of climate change, an extinct form of worm lizard was recently discovered in arid West Texas. The area was likely subtropical at the time.
Bedbugs have built up a resistance to common insecticides due to overuse. Researchers suggest that in order to completely rid our sheets and mattresses of unwanted pests, we need to reevaluate current strategies for fighting them off.
Dogs are often seen as "messy drinkers," but there is a method behind their sloppy ways. It turns out, they slurp up water using high-speed, precisely timed movements.
Fossils of kinorhynch worms, also known as mud dragons, dating back more than 530 million years were recently unearthed in South China. Researchers say these ancient, microscopic worms fill in a huge evolutionary gap.
Bacteria found on some frogs' skin naturally protects the amphibian from a deadly skin disease that is already affecting 500 species of amphibians worldwide.
Using fossilized structures known as melanosomes, researchers concluded that an ancient bat species was reddish-brown in color. More importantly, the study suggests that melanin desposits from fossils can be used to determine the color of ancient species.
An invasive species of moth known as the tomato leafminer is damaging tomato crops globally. It hasn't made its way to the U.S. yet but Virginia Tech researchers have issued recommendations on how to prevent future destruction.
During the winter monthsong, songbirds routinely eat from bird feeders that remain a vital food source, but such good-will gestures have been linked recently to a widespreading avian eye disease that is often fatal.
